VeraSun Energy Corporation, one of the US’ largest ethanol producers, and Enterprise Rent-A-Car, the largest rental car company in North America, will work collaboratively to promote the use of VE85, VeraSun’s branded E85, in Enterprise’s Flexible Fuel Vehicles (FFVs).
The partnership will concentrate Enterprise’s FlexFuel Vehicles near strategic VE85 fueling locations.
Enterprise has the world’s largest FFV fleet with more than 41,000 cars and trucks capable of using E85 (85% corn-based ethanol and 15% petroleum). Under the agreement, Enterprise will concentrate FFVs at designated “VE85/FlexFuel” rental branch offices and commit to fuel those vehicles with VE85. Participating Enterprise locations will be located near commercial fueling stations that carry VE85. Today, VE85 is available at more than 90 retail locations nationwide.
