Which to believe?

It's a 2002 Ford Taurus SEL. DURATEC 24V.

The sticker on the flap for the fuel cap access panel says to use
ETHENOL or Regular Unleaded only. But the Vin number of the car
doesn't start with the right letter for it to be a flex fuel. So what
gives? Was the sticker placed there in error? Is the DURATEC set up
for burning alcohol from farms instead of petroleum? Or will this
damage the engine? The Flex Fuel is a modified 3.0 Vulcan from what I
remember.

All engines that run on regular fuels will run on ethanol added fuels
with no problem so don't sweat it.

they are addressing the standard 10% ethanol mixes, not E85. the flex
fuel ones say so. KB

Hurc, you are full of it (ethanol perhaps). Ethanol is blended into
gasoline from several suppliers across Canada all year round. It is an
oxygenator and octane booster, as well as a substitute for petroleum.

REPORT HIM!!!

I sure did. If enough people report his abuse to his ISP, he will be
banned from the net. I reported him to Google, and google takes
newsgroup abuse very seriously.
