With year-round sales of E15 now allowed across the nation, the popularity of the fuel blend continues to grow daily. Engine experts consistently agree that E15 is not only a more-affordable, higher-octane fueling option at the pump, but that it is good for engines. Convenience Store Decisions (CSD) Magazine interviewed fuel experts earlier this month to discuss the myriad benefits of higher blends of ethanol fuel for drivers and their vehicles, and to highlight its growing retail availability.
“I am amazed at the shift of customers choice to higher ethanol-blended fuels. Less than five years ago it was not available here,” said Minnoco repair consultant Steve Anderson. “Today it has a loyal following and is a large contributor to our overall volume. We have seen great success in offering Unleaded88 to our customers. Once they understand that they are getting more octane for less money, they continue to reach for it at the pump again and again.”
