E15 now available in North Dakota

23 September 2013

E15 blended gasoline is now available in four of North Dakota’s larger cities. North Dakota is the ninth state to offer the fuel blend containing 15% ethanol and 85% gasoline. The others are Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Nebraska, North Carolina, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.

E15 is available at six Petro Serve USA locations in Bismarck, Mandan, West Fargo and Fargo. The fuel is approved by the EPA for all cars and light-duty vehicles with a model year of 2001 or newer, as well as flex-fuel vehicles.

North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple and other ethanol backers announced the availability of E15 at the Petro Serve USA’s Bismarck fueling and retail store on Divide Avenue. Those joining Dalrymple for the E15 kickoff included Jeff Zueger, chairman of the North Dakota Ethanol Council; Tom Lilja, executive director of the North Dakota Corn Growers Association and Kent Satrang, chief executive of Petro Serve USA. During the event, Dalrymple encouraged other commercial fuel providers throughout North Dakota to make room at their pump stations for E15.

The ethanol industry contributes more than $640 million annually to the state’s economy and supports more than 10,000 jobs, the governor’s office noted. Since 2005, North Dakota’s ethanol production capacity has increased from about 30 million gallons per year to about 377.5 million gallons.
