Can anyone explain why not all 2014 Impala’s with V6 are NOT E85 compatible?
What parts of the system are different? Which seals? Gas Lines? Anything in the motor?
Mine has a black gas cap and doesn’t have flex-fuel label. I’ve seen one car on the internet with same specs as mine, and it’s vin is earlier than mine, and it appears to have the sticker. (Or are the VINs not sequential?)…
Are the parts cheaper even though they sell the car for the same price?
I’m more curious than anything…I just guess if you engineer it one way and it works for both, just make them all the same way…
It looks like from online reviews that all v6’s should be e85. Manual doesn’t give a definite, just check the color of your gas cap. Black=NO, Yellow=YES.
Well thanks for any insight.
The totally redesigned Impala’s 300 hp, 3.6L V6 engine includes E85 Flex Fuel capability as standard for the 2LT and 2LZ trim levels.
