Minnesota corn growers launch Better Fuel Initiative promoting E15 and E85

February 10, 2020 |

In Minnesota, the Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA) is building a future of better transportation fuels for all Minnesotans by launching the Better Fuel Initiative. The initiative will promote the adoption of state policies, raise awareness, drive research and increase infrastructure with the aim to meet environmental goals through the use of biofuels.

The Better Fuel Initiative builds on the momentum for biofuels in Minnesota. Stations offering E15, a blend of 15 percent ethanol and 85 percent gasoline, have grown from just 14 in 2015 to more than 350 today. Minnesota drivers pumped more than 70 million gallons of E15 in 2019, which is more than triple the volume just two years prior. The Environmental Protection Agency has approved the use of E15 year-round for all vehicles 2001 or newer – nearly nine out of ten cars on the road today.
