E85 ethanol is just a marketing scheme used by farmers to sell more corn. It has half the BTU's as gasoline. Which mean it would run out twice as fast. Thus causing you to take more trips to the gas station. The only advantage is that it is slightly better for the environment.

But the electric car is a cool idea for short trips.
