Wisconsin Corn Growers Association Directors congratulate Badger State Ethanol and Wisconsin’s ethanol industry for collaborating to open eight new fuel pumps offering E15 fuel in Wisconsin.
E15 is a high-octane fuel made up of 15 percent ethanol and 85 percent gasoline that can be used by 75 percent of the light-duty vehicles on the road today. In January 2011, the EPA approved E15 for use in model year 2001 and newer cars, light-duty trucks, SUVs, and flex-fuel vehicles.
“These new fuel pumps provide Wisconsin drivers with another great option to power their cars with a clean and renewable fuel,” says Brian Long, Weyauwega farmer and president of the Wisconsin Corn Growers Association. “E15 is the most tested renewable fuel in history, having been driven over some 6 million miles. The results were so satisfactory that E15 is the fuel of choice for NASCAR vehicles – high-performance race cars that can top 200 miles an hour.”
The pumps are located at the SmartStation, 1290 Business Highway 151, Platteville, Wis.,
a wholly owned subsidiary of Badger State Ethanol.
