All I got was an alternative fuel plate and I know nothing about this sticker.

I am happy to display the sticker. I want people to know that there is a very ordinary looking car out there that happens to be all electric and will provide about 90% of driving without any use of foreign oil. Anything I can do to help the U.S. stop sending over $1,000,000,000 per day to foreign countries is a good thing. We have displayed our LEAF at three local events and have another planned for Sept. 3rd. I have been surprised in six months of ownership only two people have recognized the LEAF as an all electric car. It does look a lot like a Versa and there is even a Mazda model out there that bears a striking resemblance to it and they are both ICE vehicles. So I think the sticker might be of some small help in getting the EV word out.

BTW, that sticker is extremely ridiculous! :D


No, E85 wouldn't qualify, technically or legally. All those cars listed on that sticker have to be 100%/dedicated to that fuel type before they can use the HOV and receive a blue AFV plate. The only use for that sticker would be for someone who has an AFV, but chooses to keep their existing plate from their ICE car. They would then have to affix that sticker if they wanted to use the HOV.

So E100 would qualify then. Hmm...

That is a great explanation. Thank you.

Only the plate is necessary, however I heard someone was pulled over by DPS for using the carpool lane even though their car had the AFV plate. I recommend to print out and highlight section E of AZ Revised Statute 28-2416 and carry it in your glove box just in case.
