A new E85 pump offering the high-ethanol blend is available in the St. Paul area at Aurora Cooperative, 614 2nd St.
The St. Paul E85 pump is the 68th in Nebraska to offer higher ethanol blends. The location will have regular gasoline, E10 unleaded, and E85 available. Find a current list of Nebraska E85 pumps in Nebraska at the Nebraska Ethanol Board website at www.ne-ethanol.org or check the Nebraska Corn Board website at www.nebraskacorn.org.
Over 100,000 Nebraska motorists currently own Flexible Fuel Vehicles, which can run on any blend of ethanol and gasoline, including E85. Drivers can confirm if their car is a FFV by checking their owner's manual or visiting the Nebraska Ethanol Board website at www.ne-ethanol.org/ffv.
"E85 and other ethanol fuels burn cleaner than gasoline and the ethanol is produced here in Nebraska. As manufacturers produce more Flex Fuel Vehicles each year, there is an opportunity to expand the use of high level ethanol blends," said Todd Sneller, Nebraska Ethanol Board administrator. "When FFV drivers fill up on E85 and other ethanol blends, they're strengthening Nebraska's economy, making our country more energy independent and going easier on the environment," Sneller said.
"We are pleased that ethanol, grown and produced right here in Nebraska by our corn farmers, can be offered locally," said Kim Clark, ag program manager with the Nebraska Corn Board.
