Growth Energy announced that consumers have surpassed 8 billion miles on E15, known to consumers as Unleaded 88 – a fuel blended with 15 percent renewable biofuel that is approved for all cars 2001 and newer. This milestone is a reflection of the growing popularity of the fuel made possible by rapid retail adoption and more terminal availability of the fuel across the nation.

“With a surge in retailer adoption and terminal availability, we’re seeing steady growth in consumer adoption as exemplified by consumers surpassing 8 billion miles on this cleaner-burning, engine-sound fuel,” said Growth Energy Vice President of Market Development Mike O’Brien. “Supply of E15 into the fuel marketplace is a crucial step in further expansion, and our success with Prime the Pump has led to a steep growth in terminals offering E15 across the country. Our work with the nation’s leading independent retailers has put pressure on terminals to follow suit, causing a domino effect in their offering of E15 at their locations across most of the country.”

Consumer demand from retailers like Kwik Trip, RaceTrac, Casey’s, Cumberland Farms, and others has pushed open the doors to a ready supply of E15 at terminals. Working with Prime the Pump, Growth Energy has focused its efforts on establishing partnerships with the largest, independent players in the fuel space, which in turn has spurred a significant increase in E15 availability at terminals across the country – from five in 2017 to more than 100 today.

Congressional #Biofuels Caucus urging negotiators of next #COVID19 relief package to include direct aid for #ethanol and #biodiesel https://t.co/ar8sEq5Zi2 #agnews @collinpeterson @EthanolRFA @GrowthEnergy @NationalCorn @brownfield

As negotiations over the next relief bill continue, the biofuel industry is reeling after staggering losses over the last several months. Whatever aid is passed must include support for biofuels, and our champions in Congress delivered that message to leadership today. https://t.co/yABlENMgUD

Members of both parties — Republican and Democratic — support the biofuel industry, simply because it's the right thing for their constituents. Rep. @RodneyDavis has long been a part of the bipartisan negotiations that support our industry, and we're grateful for him. https://t.co/eHeH6SNdI0
