More than 1,000 fuel stations offering E15 in US

13 October 2017

Growth Energy announced that more than 1,000 fuel stations around the US are offering E15—a fuel with 15% ethanol—more than doubling the number of stations from the same time last year.

E15 is cleaner and cooler burning fuel that works well for cars model 2001 and newer and typically saves up to 10 cents per gallon. More retailers are responding to consumer demand for those fuel attributes by providing E15 as a choice at their pumps.

Leading retailers including Casey’s, Cenex, Family Express, Kum & Go, Kwik Trip, MAPCO, Minnoco, Murphy USA, Protec Fuel, QuikTrip, RaceTrac, Sheetz, and Thorntons all currently offer E15 at 1,039 locations across the US. Many of these are in major metropolitan areas including: Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio.

A better choice would be H2 and ultra quick charge (500+ KW) facilities?

The discount for E15 is only 5 cents in my area.

We need to get 10,000 offering E85.

Great news, congratulations for all the organizations, companies and the gas stations who worked to make this big achievement. In 2011 the EPA certified the E15 and it took nearly 1 full year to introduce the first gas station vending E15 and that owner faced a lot of resistance from the oil company who supplied petro-fuels. He did hold the ground and slowly other gas stations / chains joined and around last year, the movement accelerated to 1,000.

I hope this will lead to many more gas stations offering E85 as well and some of them who have blender pumps may also vend E20, E30. In Brazil E27 is sold as the standard and their non flex fuel vehicles run fine on that fuel.

95% of the light duty vehicles in USA are MY-2001 or later and are E15 certified. Even the older vehicles will run on E15, its just that they are not tested.
