GM invests $31 Million to upgrade engines to E85 (Flex Fuel)...

GM today announced that it had made a $31 million dollar investment to upgrade engines produced at it's engine plant at Tonowanda, NY. The investment marks the commitment that GM has made to double it's flex fuel capable automobiles by 2010.

Somehow, though the math does not add up. With widespread reports that it costs as little as $50 per vehicle to convert it to FFV capability, it would mean that GM could produce over 60 million FFV engines. That's a quarter of the total number of vehicles on the road today!
