The following are just a few examples of what people are saying about installing and using the one and only FFI PlatinumTM  with cold start. Don’t settle for a copy!! “Support made in America products”

Auto, Truck and RV Application Comments


Thanks Alex & Gary:  Runs like a top. The first tank was nearly all E85. Could not tell when then gas ran through and E85 kicked in…seamless!

The Expedition had over 100K miles before the conversion, so I replaced all 4 O2 sensors before installing the kit. I think that helped. On our 4th full tank of E85.

Thanks again. Great product.

Hi Alex, super easy to install took more time to take of the intake system than anything ells maybe an hour and a half total time.

I have to say it didn’t make much difference in the cold start this morning or afternoon maybe there is a setting I need to change?

Now that is its in I am going to take it to a buddy and have the checked.

Because of my intake manifold you had recommended changing the dial setting from six to seven so I did that.

The fuel-flex P 3 system installed in my 1999 suburban seems to be operating fine. One or two slightly rough starts near the first use. I think the computer was adjusting. This was a great outcome, as my truck holds 42 gallons of fuel. A new station just opened near me in rocky point NY, they sell E85 at $2.19. The other station in Calverton NY is selling at $2.14. on long Island we have around 10 to 13 e-85 stations.

February 2013 Update:

Alex hello.

I have used your flex fuel E-85 kit with cold start in my 1999 Chevy suburban for 3 years @ 120,000.00 miles it has worked great. Filled that 42 gallon tank up more than i care to admit to lol.

I am going to purchase a 2006 thru 2009 Honda ridgeline. Have you used this system in this particular car?

Alex: We have upgrade systems for most all fuel injected vehicles.

I upgraded my truck to ethanol almost two years ago and as far as I’m concerned it’s the best choice I ever made. Immediately I noticed a marked improvement in performance and drivability. I also own a ’70 Plymouth Roadrunner with a considerable amount of work done to the engine which forced me to pay upwards of $6 to $7 a gallon for race gas. Running the Roadrunner on ethanol has not only saved me a substantial amount of cash but it also allows the engine to reach performance levels like never before and with all this additional performance I actually get a reduced operating temperature. The best part is that I don’t have to feel ashamed any more about polluting the atmosphere with my somewhat over the top vehicles. I know that I’m using a fuel now that is not only very green but renewable as well. So, my engine’s run more efficiently, I’m saving money and I’m protecting the environment, what more could you ask for?

Upgrading my truck required the use of an ethanol upgrade kit, also called an ethanol conversion kit. There are many kits available but there is one that stands out above all others. That kit is made by Fuel Flex International and the FFI kit is unmatched in it’s design, functionality and  warranty. The FFI Platinum is the only kit with a true cold start despite competitors claims that they do as well. FFI has done the research and if you call them someone will actually answer your call and it’s for these reasons and more that their kit is simply the best. I have seen first hand the results of buying a cheaper kit and the struggles endured. Finally, and perhaps most important of all given the current state of the economy, is that the FFI kit is the only one made entirely in the USA.                                                                                                              Thanks FFI, Wade Shaffer


commen1The E85 upgrade is working great. I checked my mileage after the re-install and on E85 I was getting 30 MPG vs 34 mpg on gasoline!!!!
Thank you again for working with me in getting my issue resolved in a quick manner. You should go out a teach great customer service to the rest of the American business world. I’m promoting kits for you but not having E85 available close by is hurting me. No one is interested in driving 25-30 minutes to get it like I will. Plus I travel out of the area where E85 is readily available. Maybe someday I will get a station out by me.

Have a good week,

97_gmc_suburbanAlex,

I just wanted to thank you for the series III replacement box you sent, I have been running it for a few weeks now and everything is fine, it was 5 degrees the other night, the truck had been sitting for a few days, and it started right up, the new programming seems to be better than ever! also I noticed my mileage hasn’t dropped off as much, again thank you for your patience with me and the other issues I had with the vehicle

Alex,

With your converter with cold-start installed, this1991 Ford Escort started at 24 degrees Fahrenheit this morning.  It was reluctant, but it started using E98.

Installed a FFI Platinum on my 2006 Toyota Corolla in about 30 minutes. Took about 10 minutes to connect it and loosely place my wires and another 20 to fine tune the wire placement and mount the box. I carelessly cut my wire ties and ended up cutting a wire during my test drive but a simple splice and away to get E85. Already was running a 60/40 E85 mix so no worries filling up my tank with 10 gallons of E85 on top of 3 gallons of gas/E85 mix. Its been 3 days and not a single problem. Great product and very simple to install.

When you said about 15 minutes for installation I didn’t believe it, but when the complete install took only 10 minutes I was blown away. We have been driving on ethanol every since as available and the switch between ethanol and gas is seamless. WOW, great product FFI, looking forward to being a new dealer.

Alex, installed the unit on my new Ford. It was an easy install and the vehicle runs great. Rich


Alex, my Maserati is running perfectly at last. We were able to tune it in perfectly. There are  no warning lights “to go to dealer. Brilliant!

Hello FFI,

My entry into your FFI green vehicle of the month contest.  I had this 2001 Saturn of mine converted for E85 by Arbor Biofuels of Vancouver WA in November.  They installed one of your FFI platinum conversion kits for me.

Its been renamed “Grandpa’s alcohol car” by many of the people who know me.  What fun.
It now has about 250 miles of E85 use and I just love it.  This car runs noticeably smoother, and has the predicable “Indianapolis Speedway Syndrome” issue.  It wants to go faster now.
The great folks at Arbor Biofuels did a fantastic job setting up the conversion kit.  Carpooling has always been fun, but now we get to add alcohol!!!   And the police actually don’t mind!!!

Alex,
On the 2nd of November I installed a replacement Flex Fuel E85 converter, that you so kindly shipped me , into my wife’s 2006 Scion and she has been using E85 every since (~1000 miles).

I wanted to thank you for your help, advice and finally, the improved box that took care of the issues I had. I especially appreciate all of this considering that I bought the original box from another dealer.  This is above and beyond service and I will definitely be an FFI customer in the future.

Converted to E85

I just wanted to let you know that I recently converted my BMW 545i to run on E85 and it is great!  There are kits readily available for any car from Full Flex International and if you drive a car, (like mine), that requires premium fuel; it makes a lot of sense.  In general, it seems that E 85 is roughly 30-35% less expensive than premium, while my mileage is reduced by about 15% with E85, (even in cold weather), so the savings are certainly there.  In the peak of the high fuel prices I had a couple fill-ups that were over $90 with premium fuel, but now at today’s prices, I fill up for about $30 with E85.  Even when fuel prices were at their worst, E85 was about $0.75/gallon cheaper and now with the prices at the lowest we’ve seen in a long time, it is still $0.65/gallon less.  Keep up the good work and I am looking forward to the future of E85 fuels made with other biomass materials and the advantages it will bring to fuel and the environment.

Thank you,

Alex,  Thank you !

I’ve put about 8000 miles on my 2006 Buick Rendezvous since my Fuel-Flex conversion in July 2008. It had 37,000 miles on it when I converted it, and now has 45,000.

I’m using almost 100% E-85, and have noticed the fuel mileage is a little less than I was getting before. Combined city/hwy mileage is now 18 mpg when I was previously getting 20. That’s not a problem though because the E-85 costs 70 cents less per gallon less than the E-10 I was using before.

The real surprise has come on two road trips, one 1000 miles and one 600 miles, when I couldn’t buy E-85 on these two trips I used 87 octane unleaded, or 89 octane E-10; and I averaged 24 Mpg !  On my pre-conversion road trips I would average 21 Mpg; and the best I ever got on a pre-conversion road trip ( with a tail wind ) was one tank full at 23 Mpg.

In short, my vehicle is running great, and I’m very pleased with my Fuel-Flex conversion.

Sincerely, David L. Lawrence, Ks.

PS: When the garage that did my conversion had a question, they were very pleased with the help they received in a phone conversation with you. They were especially impressed that you called the garage back the following day to see if everything went okay !

Maybe the ethanol gods were smiling on you and exhaled to give you a great tail wind. If I didn’t love my Jeep so much, I’d offer to trade. Always glad to hear good reports. Runs great on ethanol!  1993 Jeep Cherokee 5-spd 4.0l – Fuel Flex Platinum setting 5 – Pulstar be-1 Plugs


Alex, attached are some photos of the installation on my 2001 Nissan Frontier with a 3.3L supercharged V6. As you can see from the photos, I found a good place on the wiring harness to intercept the injector wires (white with colored stripes) and the 12V power to the injectors (black with red stripe). All of the connections were soldered and insulated with heat shrink tubing, then bundled with electrical tape.
The truck is running fine on a 50/50 mix of E85 and gasoline, with no pinging and no noticeable loss or gain in power. I came to realize that this device probably increases the value of this vehicle by about $1000, since no one in their right mind would buy a truck that uses premium gas nowadays, unless they were a total gear head and liked the supercharger, of course. It’s going to be really nice paying $.70 a gallon less for fuel, though. Thanks for your help!
