- Ahh, the Mazda B3000. While some kids take old Mazda trucks and turn them into something emission free, 67 people decided to not go that route, instead turning these flex-fuel trucks in cold, hard cash.
- Considering how many Ford Explorers were sold, it's no surprise that 230 flex-fuel models were clunked under CARS. We have to wonder how many never even had a taste of E85 in their lives, since the DOE says only 300,000 of the 5 million or so E85-capable vehicles in use in America in 2006 actually used the biofuel.
- Ford, Ford, Ford. On the one hand, it makes sense that a company that produced as many alternative fuel vehicles as Ford did had a lot of them clunked, but to see 1,409 flex-fuel Ford Rangers meet their maker must have raised some alarms in Dearborn. All in all, over 2,000 of Ford's "alternative fuel" vehicles were turned into government rebate checks. Perhaps the type of fuel used to move a vehicle isn't all that important compared to how efficient it is.
