The new addition of 500 Nissan Altima Hybrid vehicles gives customers a choice when renting a gas/electric hybrid vehicle, with the option of selecting either the Toyota Prius, a compact hybrid vehicle, or the Nissan Altima, a full-size hybrid vehicle for those desiring more room. All of these vehicles can use E10, a blend of gasoline and 10% ethanol.
Avis also offers flex fuel vehicles (FFV) for rent for those seeking to minimize environmental impact through the use of E-85 ethanol fuel. E-85 ethanol, a blend of 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline, is a mostly renewable fuel that can be made from corn, and which reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
