Stinker Stations (no jokes, please) has opened Idaho’s first E85 fueling station in Boise. GM and the National Ethanol Vehicle Coaltion supported the grand opening.
GM and the NEVC are trying to build public awareness of Flexible Fuel Vehicles and E85. GM produces more than a third of the some 4 million E85 FFVs on the road. All 2002 and newer Chevrolet Suburban and GMC Yukon XL SUVs with the Vortec 5300 engine are E85-capable. E85 capability also is available as an option on the Chevrolet Tahoe and Silverado, and the GMC Yukon and Sierra. GM is also rolling out two new E85-capable vehicles for 2005: the Chevy Avalance and Police Tahoe.
