I'm new to the Forum. I live in the Indianapolis area. After about two weeks ot test drives and internet surfing. I decided on the Titan hands down! Just got it this past wekend. This is my 1st pick up truck. I previously had a SAAB 9-3 Vig Vert. I needed something to haul dogs in that was still sporty enough to feed my need for speed LOL:jester: The only two trucks that came remotely close were the Tundra and Ridgline but did not like the way the beds or cabs were in those. I will be posting a few things on mods and the FFV option.

Flex Fuel. This allows you to use E85 where available.

gotcha. i'm a newbie ;)
so, in general is e85 fuel cheaper?

Yes, it should be cheaper. I just filled up with E85 this week to try it out and it was $2.20/gallon compared to $2.56/gallon for 89 octane. I know there has to be quite a bit of difference in the price (I believe 30% or so) to break even using E85. Since E85 is 105 octane, it's going to burn more efficiently, therefore lessening gas mileage. I'll report how many MPG I'll get with it when I fill up this weekend. So far it's worse than 89, but not as bad as I thought. Anywho, I hope this helped you.

P.S. - If you see me driving around Noblesville in a 06 Granite CC 4x4 SE with BFG A/T KO tires, be sure to give me a wave. I have a red Specialized bicycle "S" along with a Purdue University Alumni sticker on the back window.

GO BOILERS!!!:cheers:

i gotta say it...


the Ridgeline is NOT a truck

it is a SUV with a open bed

essentually it is a Pilot

but the Tundra is a truck, so you were 50% right

Also near Indy. Welcome to T.T. Bought my Titan from Butler in Noblesville
on July 7th. Ken was the name of the salesman. I was just in there yesterday having a Ipod Interface installed. It took them almost 4 hours.
Yikes! I'm not ready to go back anytime soon. I think I got a good deal
on the truck. I have around 1500 miles on it now and have enjoyed it so far.

I got mine from Butler too... I had the 2 degree timing done and few other nicks and crannies they had to work on for me. The service Dept was great for me in and out of thier in less than an hour.

I will defineatly give you a wave and a honk!! I just ordered a Volant exhaust system. Hope to get that next week.

Rick now that you mention it the Ridgeline is more like an open up SUV. Maybe that is why I didnt like it. Not enough Room!!

Juday make sure to post those E85 results.

Update on the E85 Results: 12.7 MPG...not bad considering I get 14.7 on 89 octane. The only problem is that there are only two places in Noblesville to get E85 (Meijer and the Co-op). The Meijer pump was down and not working so I had to get it at the Co-op. Seeing as how I live on the West side of town and the co-op and meijer are on the east side of town, I find it inconvenient to travel that far just to get it. If the BP by me had an E85 station, I would probably fill up every tank. It's just a convenience factor for me and right now, it's not convenient. Anyways, I urge you to try it just once because it seemed like to me it was a little more responsive (maybe it was just in my head, I don't know)

Anyways, take it easy fellas...:cheers:

I just bought my 07 Titan cc about 3 weeks ago. I have the flex fuel option as well, but there is a few questions I wanted to ask before giving it a shot. You guys have already answered a couple here in this thread. Only thing left to know is, is it ok to switch from E85 back to unleaded and vice versa without causing any damage. Thanks in advance.

Yes, it is fine to switch back and forth between the E85 and regular unleaded as far as I know. In the owners manual, it states certain facts and answers some questions to the use of E85 (FlexFuel) in the Titan. I suggest going there and reading up on some of that material so you can get a complete understanding of how that system works. Hope all goes well for you (and I hope E85 is more convenient for you than it is for me) :cheers:
