Greetings form a new-be to this group. I've a 02 Dakota 4 x 4 with the
4.7 ltr V8. I'm thrying to get information on how to convert my truck
to burn flex fuels / E85. I've tried Dodge / Chrylser, their only
comment was that it can't be done! I believe there has to be some
method or instructions on this type of chageover. Anyone with info
please pass this info. Thanks!
Especially this part;
"It is technically possible to convert a conventional gasoline
vehicle to run on E85; however, such conversions would likely be
illegal unless they are certified by the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA). To date, EPA has not certified any E85
conversions. In addition, converting a conventional vehicle to
E85 may violate the terms of the vehicle warranty. For more
information on the vehicle conversion process, please visit EPA's
Web site at: www.epa.gov/otaq/cert/dearmfr/cisd0602.pdf "
Yes, that is an issue that I completely understand. I'm brewing and burning
my own biodiesel. With biodiesel the vehicle part isn't too much of an
issue. I'm mostly limited by material compatibility in my processing
equipment. I learned real quick about viton seals and how to strip zinc from
galvanized plumbing fittings. Alcohol compatibility (both methanol and
ethanol) is a cake walk when you also routinely deal with strong acid and
