Higher blends of ethanol provide a serious boost to your profits. But don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what retailers like you have to say.
"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."
"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.
"In only eight short months, our fuel sales have almost doubled and out of all the gas sales our E15 has outgrown unleaded sales by 60-65%. Much of the credit can be given to the special $0.15 off coupons E15, E 30, E85 to get customers to try the new fuels. It showed them they could save money and get the same mileage on E15 or E30. We feel this has directly driven our sales along with a lot of customer education, one-on-one explanations of what Ethanol and bio-fuels are all about including the impact to our environment and the health and welfare of the community."- Margaret & Michael Bauer, Owners Minnetonka Minnoco
"Protec Fuel has highly benefited from working Growth Energy on multiple fronts. Whether it is from marketing efforts for retail stations or industry outreach, to regulatory questions on both E85 and E15 fuels, to an interactively sharing of ideas on customer outreach successes from across the country. We are helping expand the higher ethanol marketplace by having higher ethanol blending dispensers on the islands to enhance the retail station’s business, exposure and help make the station overall healthier. As a result, Protec Fuel has been getting positive feedback from customers and fleets using E15 fuel due to its octane similarities to regular or mid grade fuels, lower price point then regular gasoline, and no mileage decrease."
“Being a leader and not a follower, we believe in consumer choice,” said Glenn Badenhop, President and CEO of American Freedom Energy. “By offering E15, E20, E30, E40, this sets us apart from other stations, but also helps our local economies, helps the environment, and helps reduce our addiction to foreign oil. Alternative fuels are the future. Additionally, E15 Can be used in 80% of the vehicles on the road today.”- Glenn Badenhop, Owner of American Freedom Energy, Liberty Center, Ohio
"Offering E15 as a fuel choice has proved to be a beneficial business decision. E15 sales are increasing every month as we educate the public on the benefits and cost savings that go along with it. Most of our customers that try E15 come back for more. Even the ASE Certified technicians in our shop are running E15 in their cars and trucks. To date we have not received a single complaint about the fuel or it's performance. The consumer leaves feeling good about their savings and their part in keeping our air a little cleaner."
"We initially installed the pumps to broaden our supply chain to include biofuels. Blending dispensers allow us the flexibility to deliver a full array of biofuels to our customers. Our community has been positive and embraced our efforts to bring renewable fuels to them. It starts with us. Once you’ve explained the benefits of ethanol and dispelled the myths, you have a customer for life. By using alternative fuels we are creating more local jobs, supporting our local communities, securing our energy independence and impacting our environment more positively. Ethanol is greener, cleaner and burns clearer."- Scott Zaremba, President and CEO of Zarco USA. Lawrence, Kansas
“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."
“E15 has given Minnesota consumers an additional choice of gasoline at a lower price while increasing the overall volume of product sold at the retail site. Minnesota consumers welcome the new opportunity for a cheaper alternative to gasoline as there have been very little complaints or mis-fueling of E15 leaving an overall refreshing experience for everyone."- Lance Klatt, Executive Director of Minnesota Service Station Association
