Do you remember Route E85? It was a major trek around a few European countries driving exclusively Ford Flexifuel engines, running on ethanol, being compared side-to-side with regular gas and diesel counterparts. It was a total of 3,476 km (about 2,200 miles) across Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany and France.
Ford has announced a rally to promote its range of flex-fuel vehicles in Europe. The rally, nicknamed Route E-85 will start in Bodø (Norway) and will arrive in Paris (France) crossing six countries and stopping in five other cities: Umeå and Stockholm (Sweden), Copenhague (Denmark), Wuppertal and Aachen (Germany). The vehicles will be fueled exclusively on E-85.
