An AutoblogGreen reader from Down Under has let us know that E85 fuel will most likely finally be available in Australia next year. A specific date isn't set, but United Petroleum seems set to sell the ethanol-petrol blend in "early 2008" at the price of about $1AUS per liter, starting around Melbourne and Sydney.
The ethanol-pusher in this case was Saab, which has been selling an E85-capable 9-5 in Australis for $1,000 more than the standard version, without any E85 available for people to put into the tank.
