"We’ve been avid supporters of ethanol since the 70's and we have been selling ethanol-enhanced gas for over 40 years. Several years ago, we put in E85 and in 2008 we decided to offer more choices at the pump by installing blenders that offer E20, E30, E40 and E85. We want to support the organizations that support us and that's why we believe in the mission of
Growth Energy."

Executive Summary

In February of 2012, Growth Energy commissioned a study with a third party research firm, Irwin Broh Research, to better define the value higher ethanol blends (from E15 up to E85) offer to retailers.

Initial results demonstrate that the vast majority of retailers are able to establish a fuel price advantage in their markets, are likely to see increased fuel sales, are able to simplify inventory, and have seen increased store traffic in large part due to the addition of flex fuel pumps offering higher blends of ethanol fuel. Roughly 81 percent of these retailers state they are satisfied with their decision to install flex fuel pumps.

In addition, findings in this report indicate that if the ethanol retailer is able to advertise the ethanol price advantage, they experience even higher levels of success in selling ethanol blends.
