The Morris (Illinois) Police Department is introducing
a flexible-fuel Dodge Durango to their fleet and will be filling it up with E85. The SUV won't see police use until October, since modifications like adding sirens and caging still need to be added. One modification – sticking an E85 logo on the back end – was taken care of last week. Since E85 currently costs about thirty cents a gallon less than regular gas in Morris, there is a good chance the department will purchase more flexible-fuel vehicles next year, when the department retires five vehicles. The town's water and sewer departments are also looking into flexible-fuel vehicles and gas stations in town are thinking of adding E85 pumps.
