Re: Flex Fuel

In August of 2010 Chrysler customer care checked and called me back. Here's their answer on the E85... that kinda makes some sense. My vehicle is NOT flex fuel capable.... The Pentastar 3.6L FLEX FUEL capable is CARB STATE RESTRICTED. They will not ship the Flexfuel version until November (2010 at earliest) to states noted below. That would make me think the Flex Fuel variant does not meet Calf emissions rules yet. I live in Md. my dealer is in MD. MD is a "Carb State". So NO BADGE, No Yellow Gas Cap, and emissions placard reads "gasoline" NOT E85

States following the California standards include Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Oregon, Washington, and Arizona (as well as the District of Columbia and Bernalillo County, New Mexico) and are frequently referred to as "CARB states" in automotive discussions since the regulations are defined by the California Air Resources Board.

I live in NY, my gas cap is yellow and states "E85/Gasoline". My build date is 2/11. No badge on mine or in dealer's lot.

Same here. Yellow cap, E85, no badge.
Maybe they thought the colors of the badge did not go with my black JGC
