Iowa Adds 12 New E15 Stations in 2018

March 8, 2018 |

In Iowa, the state has added a dozen new E15 stations. Drivers can now buy the fuel at 158 fueling stations statewide. Iowa-based Casey’s General Store added the most new stations, including locations in Sioux Center, Akron, Cedar Rapids, and Lone Tree. Kum & Go, Kwik Star, and Key Cooperative each added two new stations at various locations across the state. The last two were added by Sparky’s One Stop in Jefferson and KCK Food & Fuel in Schleswig.

E15 is a fuel made of 15 percent ethanol and 85 percent petroleum. It has an 88-octane rating, improves engine performance, and reduces cancer-causing chemical emissions and greenhouse gas emissions. E15 is approved for all 2001 and newer vehicles

“This time a year ago, Iowa didn’t even have 100 E15 stations,” said Iowa Renewable Fuels Association Managing Director Lucy Norton. “It is remarkable to watch this cleaner, higher-performing fuel gain momentum and support among drivers and retailers. Americans have already driven over three billion trouble-free miles on E15.”
