Amid the news that the 2008 Ford
Crown Vic has been relegated to fleet vehicle status
is word that the 4.6L V8 powering the Police Interceptor will be flexible-fuel compatible, meaning that all the '08-model Crown Victoria
cop cars will be able to drink from the E85 pond. This is great for municipalities located in areas where the biofuel
is readily available (assuming they buy any of the new cars
). In other areas, such as this writer's Northeastern habitat, it probably won't make much of a difference, as E85 Ethanol pumps are hard to come by. In terms of police vehicles, GM's police-package Tahoe
with the 5.3L V8 is also E85-compatible.
