WASHINGTON, DC –  Today, Growth Energy announced that the Michigan-based fuel retailer NUVU Fuels will make E15 – a fuel with 15 percent renewable biofuel – the standard blend available to customers at all NUVU Fuels locations beginning this summer. NUVU Fuels will offer flex vehicle owners the choice of higher biofuel blends like E85. In addition, E10 will be available at designated dispensers for owners of older cars (which represent less than 10 percent of the vehicle fleet) and small engines. This news follows the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) approval of summer sales of E15. E15, known to consumers as Unleaded 88, is approved by EPA for all cars 2001 and newer.

“This decision is consistent with the purchase patterns of our customers, follows consumer demand, and allows us to be highly competitive in the marketplace,” said NUVU Fuels CEO Mitch Miller. “Now that we can reliably offer E15 year-round, we can confidently make it our biggest focus and offer our consumers better fuel choices to match their lifestyles. Higher biofuel blends give all drivers access to choices that are smart for their engines, kinder for the environment, and better for their wallets.”

“Growth Energy is proud to have led the fight on year-round E15 alongside fuel retailers to give all Americans access to a cleaner-burning, engine smart fuel year-round,” said Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor. “We’re excited for the model NUVU Fuels is setting and have heard interest from other retailers in moving in this direction now that E15 year-round is a reality.”

E15 is currently sold at 1,807 stations in 31 states. To learn more about Growth Energy’s work to unlock access to E15 year-round, visit GrowthEnergy.org/E15.

Thank you @SenatorFischer and @SenDuckworth for introducing bipartisan legislation to help restore transparency and integrity to the abusive small refinery exemption process, especially at a time when #biofuel producers and corn farmers need it most. growthenergy.org/2019/06/14/bip…

Today is #FlagDay - a day to celebrate the adoption of our nation's flag and honor those who serve to defend it. #Ethanol producers are proud to employ more veterans than any other segment of the energy sector, and we are thankful for their service. https://t.co/ftc1bjpOvc
