    I'm curious 'cause I heard GM has many that use that type of fuel now.

    I've been thinking about getting an SUV but was waiting for one with decent fuel economy and I'm not sure E85 addresses that.

    I know Willie Nelson has vehicles that run on ethanol but I thought the fuel economy was worse.

    I want the '07 Chevy Suburban (wanted the Cadillac Escalade but it costs too much)


    This runs about $55,000 but allows me to do everything I need. My job gets me discounted prices on GM vehicles but I don't know how much it'll be.

    I'm curious as to how much a Suburban that runs on E85 fuel would be and what the advantages are.

    On the surface, if E85 doesn't give me better fuel economy and/or the fuel cost more, than it doesn't really help me except to say I won't be using foreign oil.

    It has to be more to it than that.

    I do love the fact that we could see a future where we grow our fuel (corn and stuff).

    Explain the need for the huge gas guzzler.


    I would like to point out that this is a ridiculous vehicle choice when your concern is fuel economy.

    1. Hauling lumber and other materials for my home.

    2. Hauling lots of audio gear.

    3. Transporting a number of kids and their parents.

    4. 4x4 for rare times in the snow.

    The concern is fuel economy for an SUV. Do you know the fuel economy of a '07 Chevy Suburban using all gasoline and all ethanol?

    I think the Tahoe gets something like 22 mpg.

    Are they US gallons, or real ones?

    A $55,000 US luxury SUV to haul lumber?

    2. Hauling lots of audio gear.
    Moving a symphonic orchestra?

    3. Transporting a number of kids and their parents.
    How many and don't they have vehicles?

    4. 4x4 for rare times in the snow.
    I live in Canada and I don't need 4X4 to drive in snow often.





    I any case, it's just ridiculous to expect fuel economy from a Suburban.

    Didn't I just say it? RIF.
    Name another SUV that size.


    2. Hauling lots of audio gear.

    No. Mixers, keyboards, computers...shit like that.

    3. Transporting a number of kids and their parents.

    Alot and sure they do, dad.

    4. 4x4 for rare times in the snow.
    I live in Canada and I don't need 4X4 to drive in snow often.

    No shit...when compared to a car. dUh!

    There's also crap like the Ford Excursion that got 10 mpg which I deem ridiculous.

    I find that people harp on SUV for their gas mileage yet say nothing about sports cars which serve way less purpose.

    Thanks for answers on E85.

    It really makes no difference.

    Surely you don't expect us to believe that you can afford a $55k penis substitute when you can't afford full fare for your missus at the cinema nor a microwave for your Mam.

    VB is helping you indulge in your fantasy, you should be grateful - the rest of read half way thro' your initial post, rolled our eyes and decided that in future, we'd get our fairytales from Grimm.

    31 000 for a car that size? It either sucks bawls, or cars are dirt cheap in merkinland
