    2017 f150 eco 3.5 ethanol logging

    anyone know where this is the scanner. I'm trying to see what the ethanol % is in the fuel.

    I know factory scan tool is ffinf- flex fuel inferred

    thank you for the help, I don't see it in the latest beta.

    I am pretty sure any ecoboost will not be able to read ethanol content due to its inability to be a flex fuel vehicle with factory components. I could be wrong, but I believe the naturally aspirated engines are the only ones with this ability.

    Flex fuel logic is there on the 15+ ecoboost PCMs, just not enabled. SCT has the switch visible. When I enabled it I could log ethanol content. Ethanol content is inferred based on feedback from the o2 sensors. Eric said the required parameters are on his to do list.

    that would be awesome. then you can just add what ever amount of E85 and not have to worry about changing the stoich setting.

    Alcohol Percent is not loggable unless the vehicle has flex fuel enabled. If it does, a Repoll For Supported Parameters should pick it up.
    Even so, on Ford this is an inferred value from the inference logic which needs to be calibrated.

    None of the Ecoboosts I'm aware of currently have any of the Flex Fuel stuff shown. There's a lot left uncalibrated on an Ecoboost in the Flex Fuel tables, and so its a project to get it calibrated and running. I know its something on the table that we want to support, but no ETA.
