NASCAR drivers surpass 15M miles on E15

Last weekend at the Bluegreen Vacations 500, NASCAR reached a significant milestone, announcing that its drivers have surpassed 15 million miles on Sunoco Green E15, a fuel made with 15% ethanol.

NASCAR adopted E15 in 2011 across its three national series to reduce emissions in the sport, while maintaining the high-performance standard needed by drivers during every race. Growth Energy, the nation’s largest association representing ethanol producers and supporters, launched its American Ethanol program in 2011 in conjunction with NASCAR’s decision to adopt E15.

Consumers can purchase 15% ethanol blends—most commonly labeled as Unleaded 88 at the fuel pump—at more than 2,000 locations in 30 states across the country. Unleaded 88 has more octane than regular unleaded fuel, and costs up to $0.10 less per gallon.

This, from an organization that didn't allow fuel injection until 2011 and still doesn't allow turbocharged engines despite them being ubiquitous.
