The #1 issue with E85 is that the supply of it is already far less than would be needed to fuel the minority of the US vehicle fleet which can run it.
The only reason GM and Ford pushed out a bunch of so called flex-fuel vehicles was that they got credits against their CAFE numbers for selling the things. It didn't matter if nobody every fueled with E85, just selling cars which in theory could run the stuff allowed GM and Ford to avoid penalties for not hitting CAFE targets. For example, see:

In other words, the bottom line is that the GM and Ford vehicles sold as a group were allowed to have lower fuel economy than they otherwise would have been required to in return for putting a bunch of flex-fuel capable vehicles out there.
Mass insanity.

Why would you take his word? "E85 a a combination of 15 percent gasoline and 85 percent ethanol, a corn-based additive. Flex-fuel cars can run on gas, E85, or combinations of the two." TIM MOLLOY, Associated Press writer
