    Is the E-85 Emblem Shown in GM Commercials A Real "Part"?

    I've seen Ethanol/ E-85 / "Flex Fuel" emblems on the rear of Tahoes and Yukons in recent GM SUV and "Live Green, Go Yellow" and "Only GM" commercials. But I've only seen them in the commercials. Is that a real emblem, or just a PR thing that looks good on film? Can any dealers or parts guys confirm that this is a real emblem / part?

    Ford had one like a little leaf and a road curving off in the distance. I always had wondered what that was.

    There's a plan to put those emblems on the car. But I haven't seen any.
    I'll make a new sig. Later.

    There are no visible indications on the Impala that it is flex fuel-capable
    I hope this changes. Even a little dinky emblem.

    I remember seeing it on the Tahoe they had displayed at NAIAS this year. I may have seen it on a few other vehicles that are on the road, but I cannot be sure if I just place them there from my memory.

    If there is an emblem on the SUV's then I can order one for my future Impala. I usually don't like badges and clutter on my car, but I think its important for people to see these badges and ask questions about Ethanol as I feel strongly that its time for us to wean ourselves off of (specifically) imported oil from Latin American Leftist adversaries like Hugo Chavez, and make ourselves independent of Middle Eastern oil so we can get the heck out of there and spend our 300 billion at home instead.
