"I project in the future there are two retailers. Those that currently sell E15 and those that will be selling E15. The customers that use E15 can't believe why you wouldn't want to use E15. By offering E15 it sets us apart from every other retailer in the market with the lower price point on the sign. As a third generation owner/operator of Hennen's Auto Service we have been serving our customer automotive needs since 1958. I have been selling E15 to our customers since the fall of 2013. Since I introduced the higher level blend of ethanol there has not been one complaint do to mileage loss or engine performance. Only positive comments with drivability and the lower cost at the pump. Today's cars are designed to utilize the higher octane to improve performance threw different computer management systems. I see higher level blends of ethanol like E15 being the next fuel of future.

E15 Performance


“In the 25+ years I have been selling motor fuels. The repeated claims of late, by individuals claiming to be expert, saying that ethanol ruins engines, is contrary to my first-hand real life experience. We have been selling and using E15 in our own vehicles since July 2012 with zero fuel related problems.”

— Scott Zaremba, owner, ZarcoUSA 

E15 and Engine Performance

  • E15 boosts engine performance, increases horsepower and runs cleaner through engine valves by removing deposits created by lower-quality gasoline.
  • Modern day fuels contain waxy solvents that leave deposits that can reduce power and efficiency within 10,000 miles. Ethanol keeps engines cleaner by helping dissolve deposits in critical parts — like the pistons, fuel intake valves and ports.
  • Ethanol is the lowest cost oxygenator available and when added to gasoline it improves engine performance.

Ethanol Prevents Phase Separation

  • Fuels containing ethanol are able to better prevent engine damage through better absorption of water found in the fuel supply.
    • Phase separation, a rare situation, can occur with any fuel using an oxygenator — including other petroleum products. In the case of ethanol, it has the ability to absorb more water and protect the engine from water related damage.
  • The addition of ethanol to fuels has eliminated the need for fuel additives like “Heat” in Northern climates to protect the fuel lines and engine from water freezing.

E15 is the most widely tested fuel ever:

  • Repeated evaluative studies showed no statistically significant loss of vehicle performance (fuel economy, and maintenance issues) attributable to the use of E15 fuel in MY2001 and newer vehicles.
  • In a specific study performed by the U.S. Department of Energy in conjunction with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 86 vehicles, representing all makes and models, were driven more than 6 million miles on E15 with zero issues.
  • NASCAR has run more than 9 million miles on E15 with better fuel mileage and horsepower. “E15 is the most exciting addition to NASCAR performance in years,” said Richard Childress, owner of Childress Racing.

E15 will save consumers money

  • The cost-benefit analysis favors E15 — numerous studies have shown that ethanol saves consumers at the pump, and increasing the blend to 15 percent further reduces prices at the pump.
    • From 2007-2011, ethanol has enjoyed a price advantage over regular gasoline, with ethanol blends running 15-75 cents cheaper per gallon on a yearly basis.
  • Since ethanol is a high-octane fuel, E15 carries an octane rating of 88 and substantially increases performance, durability and horsepower.
