Sunoco to Supply NASCAR with E15 Race Fuel

17 October 2010

Sunoco, Inc. will supply the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) with a new high-performance fuel for the 2011 season. The new fuel—Sunoco Green E15—is a 15% ethanol blend that will be used in NASCAR’s three national touring series.

Sunoco Green E15 will be blended at Sunoco’s fuel facility in Marcus Hook, Pa. The corn-based ethanol will come in part from Sunoco’s new ethanol manufacturing facility in Fulton, N.Y. NASCAR team engine builders have been testing Sunoco Green E15 for several months and reports have been very positive. Many have reported achieving more horsepower with Sunoco Green E15. The new fuel will be pumped directly from tankers at the track, rather than from on-site underground storage tanks.

As the new official fuel of NASCAR, Sunoco Green E15 will replace Sunoco 260 GTX, a 98-octane, unleaded race fuel. Starting in 2011, Sunoco Green E15 will be used by every car and truck in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, NASCAR Nationwide Series, and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
