Cars that run on E-85 ethanol fuel

Chinese auto manufacturers who would like to export to North America should equip their cars to run on E-85 ethanol fuel. (85% alchohol & 15% gasoline). Currently in the United States there are very few cars and trucks manufactured that will run on this fuel, but it is growing in popularity with rising gas prices. The Chinese manufacturer might use this as a selling point and I dont think the cost would be too much more per vehicle using mass production techniques.

No, not right now. Surely there are thousands of cars on the road that can use E85, but guess what, only 500 or so gas stations has the fuel, and all in the Mid West. Until 10's of thousands of gas station carry the fuel, it's a moot point.

Hybrid or diesel would be much more wise.
