Daimler Chrysler anounced that it will begin offering a flexible-fuel Jeep Commander that runs on both gasoline and E85, a blend of gasoline and ethanol made from corn. Chrysler expects 25% of its vehicles to be flexible-fuel enabled in the next few years, to help consumers offset the high price of gas. Ethanol cars have been sold in Brazil with remarkable success in the past several years. The main problem in the US is the lack of gas stations that offer E85 fuel (only 500 from a total of 180,000).
