“E15 is approved for vehicles 2001 and newer and we’ve had zero problems, in fact my customers love the cost savings and extra performance. If your mechanic ever tells you that ethanol causes problems, fire them because they are too lazy to find the real problem."
This site was created to help fuel marketers learn more about selling blends of ethanol by installing ethanol flex fuel pumps and E15. Here, you'll learn how ethanol, America's renewable fuel, can be used in various blends. From selling E10 for any vehicle on the road, to offering E15 for 2001 and newer vehicles (which equates to 86+% of the vehicles on the road today or 200 million vehicles), to offering flex fuel blends for our nation's 20 million flex fuel vehicles; giving consumers the choices they want is good business. We'll show you why installing an ethanol flex fuel pump or E15 makes sense for your business, explain how you can offer this choice to your customers, and give you resources to turn this opportunity into reality.
The Time is Now
There is no better time than now to gain a competitive advantage in your business through selling mid-level ethanol blends. As the country moves forward in building the infrastructure to support the Renewable Fuels Standard, retailers on the cutting edge of providing consumers choice at the pump are already seeing significant financial incentives. So could you. Join the movement, E15 is growing now in more than 28 states and 431 retail locations.
"We have had great results adding E15 to our offerings of fuel choice. Customers are choosing E15 as the most popular fuel. We have been able to pump 1,000,000 gallons E15 since its launch December 2014. Being a long time operator of both branded and unbranded gasoline stores at times you have pluses and minuses on both sides. It is my experience in today’s current market that having E15 is a game changer. We have shown volume increases. We have constant customer interactions appreciating the lower price on fuel offerings. Being able to blend on site with the help of Growth Energy allows the price delta to be lower and save customer real money.The future of E15 is real. I believe the motoring public will have top of mind knowledge and understand the “e” vocabulary in the next 5 year. Once the customer gets the proper exposure and unbiased truth their decision making ability will show success of E15."
