“The initial reason the blender pump was installed is because the cooperative was looking at offering something unique to consumers, more choices than just E10. Because there were no stations in Reno County that offered mid-level blends, the cooperative decided to install the blender pump. Ethanol is clean, green and our dollars stay right here. It’s better for our environment and every other aspect. We need to get out there and dispel some of these myths to change the public views of those who lack knowledge.”

Ethanol Benefits Your Customers


Higher blends of ethanol provide advantages that resonate with American consumers.

To start with, ethanol gives consumers a lower-priced choice. Whether you’re installing a flex fuel pump or simply switching to E15, it’s a choice that is typically less expensive. In fact, with an octane rating of 113, ethanol is a high performance fuel that keeps your engine running smoothly, especially under challenging summer time driving conditions. Ethanol also keeps your fuel system clean for optimal performance since it won’t leave gummy deposits. In the winter, ethanol acts like an anti-freeze, minimizing gas line issues. Ethanol also supports local communities. Because it’s a homegrown fuel, it creates hundreds of thousands of jobs here in America that can never be outsourced. Billions of dollars stay here at home that would otherwise be shipped overseas.

Ethanol is cleaner and “greener” than gasoline. Not only does it produce less carbon emissions when it’s burned, because it’s a biofuel, it actually captures carbon dioxide from the air during the production process.

One of ethanol’s greatest advantages is it lowers our dependence on foreign oil. The more energy we produce here at home, the less money our nation ships to countries in the Middle East – and the more we help our own economy.
