Toyota Developing Flex-Fuel Cars

Nikkei. The Nihon Keizai Shimbun reports that Toyota is developing flex-fuel cars, targeted at the Latin American market.

Toyota hopes to market new flex fuel vehicles in the second half of next year at the earliest because Latin America, where new car sales are rising sharply, is one of the priority markets for the carmaker.

Flex-fuel vehicles run either on gasoline or ethanol. In Brazil, flex fuel sales are booming.

All foreign carmakers operating in Brazil, except for Toyota and Honda, are already marketing flex-fuel cars. Toyota now sees promise in this car category, as increased numbers of such vehicles are also selling in China and India.

Toyota sold 260,000 new cars in Latin America last year, 50,000 of those in Brazil.



Hallo Rico,

Will Toyota convert its hybrid Pris to flex fuel next year?

Will Toyota be selling and shipping flex cars here in the south Texas area any time in the near future.

I am thinking of buying the Camry Hybrid later this year. I would be even happier if it could be a flex fuel vehicle as well. Any chance of this happening in the near future?

I own a 2004 Toyota Prius, and a 1995 Landcruiser can they be converted to Flex Fuel, if not when will Toyota release a Flex Fuel vehicle, I am in the market for a new vehicle and my next purchase will definitely be Flex Fuel!


Everyone has questions here; good questions, which I'd like to hear some answers. Saddly, no one is stepping up as the answer expert. I just bought an 07 Pris.

I runs on reular gas. It has an 11 gal. tank (now half empty after 260 miles). Several people I know said that the claimed 50 miles per gal were false. I am getting about 50mpg, sometimes more or less depending on the hills over which I need to travel. The car is new and I hope that the mpg I have now will continue. Here in Salt Lake UT, I don't know of any place to get ethanol.

Dan Lorenzo ….Lead American engineer for the product Fullflex Gold has devised a bigger better Ethanol conversion kit named ECO-FLEX. The reason for this new design was to develop a better, faster, more responsive ethanol conversion kit that would retail for a lower cost. As lead Engineer for the product Fullflex gold Dan Lorenzo was the prevailing Technician that allowed this product to actually work and run within the parameters necessary to achieve the EPA compliance.
Dan Lorenzo is the Lead Engineer documented on the EPA forms for the product Fullflex Gold…… He found that by using the old analog technology that the performance would be inferior and the cost of this device to the public was far too expensive . By choosing a digital unit that could be developed at a much lesser price, Not only could allow better performance to the vehicle but also allow less of a loss of fuel mileage when using ethanol. It has been documented that a loss of 10% fuel economy was found when using this digital technology and ethanol and a transparent fuel mileage when using gasoline.
This new digital technology is currently being sold world wide with great response from the public.
Dan Lorenzo, CEO of Xpertech Automotive Inc. will continue developing quality products to better serve the American and other countries in this time and need to become less dependant on foreign fuels.
