This month, two of our fuel stations, Nevada & Story City, will feature a fuel product change. The change in product is a result of a pilot project to measure the success of E15 at the two stations. During this pilot project, we will be replacing E85 with E15 at Nevada and Story City only.
So why E15?
More vehicles can run on E15 versus E85.
More vehicles running ethanol = more support for our local corn growers!
E15 is approved by the EPA for all vehicles 2001 and newer.
E15 will be $.10 less than Super Unleaded.
E15 is a blend of 15% ethanol and 85% gasoline. It is an environmentally-friendly fuel that burns cleaner than gasoline.
The latest research shows that ethanol produced from corn can reduce GHG emissions by as much as 59% relative to gasoline.
There has been more testing of E15 than any other fuel additive in the history of the EPA fuel waiver process. In 6 million miles of testing, the Department of Energy found no problems with the use of E15 in the numerous vehicles selected.
We want your feedback!
