SAO PAULO – Volkswagen do Brasil Ltda. says it may stop selling vehicles fueled solely by gasoline within two to three years.

“The tendency is to use flexible-fuel systems (that) accept gasoline or alcohol-based fuel,” says Paulo Sergio Kakinoff, director-sales and marketing.

Only the Gol model currently has this option, a recent addition. In the first two weeks of availability, more than 5,000 flex-fuel Gols were sold.

VW also plans to install the flex-fuel system, called Total Flex, in the Brazilian-built Parati station wagon and Saveiro pickup.
