Growth Energy: Drivers across US top 6 billion miles on E15

By Growth Energy | November 08, 2018

Today, Growth Energy announced that American drivers have driven another billion miles, totaling 6 billion, on E15—a fuel with 15 percent biofuel that is approved for all 2001 and newer vehicles. The announcement comes on the heels of President Trump’s move to make E15 available year-round and two major fuel retailers making news about their plans for E15 expansion.

“American drivers know a good value when they see it, which is precisely why once they try E15 they come back again and again,” said Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor. “E15 provides unrivaled value for engines, the environment, and people’s wallets and we’re seeing more and more Americans rely on E15 to fuel their lives.”

“E15 has been a resounding success for our customers. When drivers pull up to our pumps they choose E15 because it delivers more octane for a lower cost than regular unleaded gasoline and because it burns cleaner and cooler. They know that it’s a smart choice for their engines,” said Steve Anderson, the owner of Marshal Cretin Minnoco, a AAA Approved Auto Repair Facility and an ASE Certified Automobile Consultant. “I’ve worked as a mechanic for 33 years and I’ve seen firsthand the engine benefits of E15. We’ve sold E15 for 4 years and have had nothing but satisfied customers.”

Today, major retailers like Kwik Trip, Sheetz, Casey’s, Cumberland Farms, Thorntons, Kum & Go, RaceTrac, QuikTrip, Rutter’s, Minnoco, Protec Fuel, Murphy USA, Family Express, and Cenex offer E15 at more than 1,600 stations across 30 states and that number is poised to grow.
