Excellent summary Very good summary, some more info that could be intresting is the availability of other FFV cars like the Ford Focus and C_MAX FFV as well as the Volvo C30, S40 and V50 FFV models, these cars are for example available in Sweden, Norway, Germany, France.
Other intresting information is the source of the available ethanol (local imported etc) as well as the average price per litre E85 in each country.
The amount of E85 filling sations is a bit outdated, there are currently 873 E85 stations in Sweden, 6 in Norway, 83 in Germany, 17 in Ireland, 16 in the UK, 5 in Holland, 83 in Germany, 55 in France 8 in Switzerland and soon there will be E85 in Austria as well.

Greeings, Aryan
