Drivers are choosing E15, known to consumers as Unleaded88, at the pump now more than ever. Over the past several years, E15 has grown exponentially nationwide. It took about four years for retailers to sell enough E15 to fuel 1 billion miles (from about 2013 to 2017). However, since then, use has climbed so quickly that the number of miles driven has surpassed 16 billion today. In June, consumers surpassed 15 billion miles – that’s a billion more miles added in three months!
The consumer miles driven has also led to an increase in the number of fueling stations offering Unleaded 88. As of July, there are now more than 2,200 sites selling Unleaded88, which is a 10 percent increase from December 2019. This growth has occurred during one of the most challenging fuel markets in the past 30 years and is a testament to the strength of E15 demand.
One reason drivers continue to choose Unleaded 88 time and time again is the value to their wallet, but also the environment. COVID-19 has brought a lot of attention to the quality of the air we breathe, and how ethanol can be a solution to reducing toxic emissions from gasoline.
