  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Guys Me again I'm afraid. Saab launched the biopower 9-5 in November 2005. My, new to me, Aero Estate was first registered in Nov 05 and proudly proclaims on the boot lid BioPower. However, I cannot find any reference in VIN no, for example, or in the documentation anything about Biopower...

    There are a lot of incentives to drive vehicles classified as “Green” in Sweden. I don’t think that’s the official title, by the way, but that’s what I’ll call them for now. Drivers of these vehicles, including best-sellers like Saab’s BioPower range, enjoy a bunch of benefits that others...

  5. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I see that BSR now do a E85 bio-ethanol conversion for the saab 9-3 which is around 1500 euros, does anyone know of anywhere in the UK that supply it and whether BSR would let you keep your existing PPC rather than buying a new one with the kit to save money (suppose i should ask them that)...

    Here’s something I didn’t realise….. I’ve always been wary of aftermarket E85 tuning kits. There’s a number of people selling them, saying that all you need is the altered tuning and the car will be OK. But what about the fuel tank, the fuel lines and injectors - all the bits that Saab...

    One of the things Saab USA have most likely been waiting for before bringing BioPower to the market is for E85 to become more available in California. Cali’s got an economy bigger then most countries all on its own. It’s a big market and Saab would be more comfortable knowing that some people...

    A Hungarian Saab Club meeting can certainly draw a crowd - even in the middle of winter! Ivan’s posted a number of photos from their recent event, where they all had a chance to get up close and personal with the 2008 Saab 9-3 in Snow Silver and running on E85, though that wasn’t the only car...

    Some of you may remember that TS contributor, 1985Gripen, was recently involved in a car accident. Thankfully he was OK with just some whiplash to contend with, but the accident left his work-supplied vehicle a write-off. His replacement vehicle is a Chevy Impala LS, and it’s E85 capable. As...

    This is Jörgen’s Saab: Jörgen’s car is a 2004 Saab 9-3 Convertible. But it’s not just that. As you can see, there’s some Nordic graphic work on the side there. This convertible is also a beta test model for Nordic’s latest E85 tune for the Saab 9-3. This is a ‘conversion’ tune. That...

    Ivan! Where you been? —— It’s becoming well known that for E85 to grow as an altenative fuel is going to take both consumer and government support. Most people sing out when they hear about government support, stating that the fuel should be left to itself so the market can decide...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I wonder wether anyone did try to use E85 as a fuel on a long run.. ?? I just filled the car ('96 9k, 2.0T) with E85, (but as the tank was not really empty it rather should be around ~E60 right now:) and experienced nothing special. Approx the same fuel consumption by the comp, and run like...

    Photo Credits: Saab History During the 2007 60th Anniversary Saab Festival in Sweden back in early June, I took some photographs while visiting a fuel station in our rented 2007 Saab 9-3 SportCombi that I filled up in the quaint little town of Skövde. As I glanced over at the ethanol prices in...

    This past week, Minnesota ran an ethanol promotion in celebration of flag day where prices of E-85 were in some places as low as .85 cents per gallon. While this is a very low price in comparison to today’s prices, dating back to gasoline equivalents before the millenium, it would be...

    In the United States, Minnesota is known to be the number one State in the country for the percentage of immigrants that have come from Sweden compared to the rest of the country over a hundred years ago. Minnesota also ranks first in terms of having the largest availability of E-85 filling...

    It's a small start, but it's a start nonetheless. The number of E85 pumps in the US has grown steadily in the last 12 months and is tipped to grow remarkably, most likely in 2008, after safety certification is undertaken by a group called Underwriters Laboratories. Until that happens, its a...
