Default Re: trouble with flex fuel

Is the truck even designed for flex fuel? When a vehicle maker builds a flex fuel vehicle everything is the fuel system like the filter lines injectors are made special to handle the ethanol. You probably have a clogged fuel filter. Ethanol isn't nice to fuel lines. It is very corrosive. It will eat rubber seals in the fuel system. This is why I drive out of my way to go to a gas station to purchase fuel WITHOUT ethanol!
