Flex Fuel question
Some say, the Captiva's 3.0 SIDI V6 is capable of flex fuel.
However, I'm not able to tell whether or not it will run on e85 or not. My vehicle did not come with an owners manual, and I'm not able to locate a definite answer online.

The GM Powertrain site lists it as an E-85 capable engine, but their inconsistant on vehicle aplications as they state its only available in the Cadilliac CTS wagon.
Id contact GM to get the straight scoop.

Check the RPO sticker in your glove box. If it has LFW, then you have the flex-fuel version of the 3.0. If it's LF1, you don't.
