WASHINGTON, D.C. — Growth Energy announced that more than 1,000 fuel stations around the country are offering E15—a fuel with 15 percent ethanol—more than doubling the number of stations from the same time last year.
“This spectacular growth is a testament to the value E15 brings to fuel retailers and consumers,” said Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor. “Forward-thinking retailers have figured out that giving their customers more fuel choices is smart business and American drivers have figured out that E15 allows them to save money at the pump all while making a smarter choice for their engines and the environment.”
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 and 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 U.S. Many of these are in major metropolitan areas including: Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio.

President Trump committed to #E15YearRound to strengthen rural economies – the EPA is putting his promise in danger. Rural communities are counting on Secretary Perdue to honor the President’s promise and hold the EPA accountable. #RFSworks https://t.co/KeF9CZzdfL @GrowthEnergy
