    Toyota.com still allows you to choose non-flex engine, so I assume that non-flex engine is still available.

    Theoretically, flex fuel should be better (since ethanol fuel is more corrosive than regular gasoline, they had to beef up the fuel line, etc), but some flex Tundra owners have had problems with it. I think it has something to do with computer misinterpreting the kind of fuel being used. I don't have flex fuel but it seems that reported problems with flex engine seems much less frequent than a few years ago.

    Found out that in my region in SW MI only FFV available. Had dealer order non-flex one from plant in Texas. Picking it up this coming Saturday took about 7+ weeks.. As mentioned you have to request/order it. 2016 Tundra, 4x4, 5.7, CM, SR5+, white

    Flex owner here. Only problem I had was cold start issues during winter. This was a computer error misreading the alcohol content of the fuel. Took it to the dealer, got it re-programmed, now its all good. I never run e85 anyway.

    If you run ethanol, your oil change frequency moves to every 2500 miles.
