The number of gas stations offering the E-15 ethanol blend in the U.S. could soon break 100. According to ethanol production group Growth Energy, E-15 is being phased in at Protec stations in metro areas of the south and southeast. The new areas include Atlanta, Georgia; Houston, Dallas and San Antonio, Texas; and, stations in Virginia and Florida.
Protec Fuel, based in Boca Raton, Florida, already supplies more than 200 stations with E-85. Growth Energy says E-15 is currently available at more than 90 stations in 14 states including: Wisconsin, Ohio, South Dakota, Missouri, Nebraska, Illinois and Iowa – also – North Dakota, North Carolina, Michigan, Minnesota, Kansas, Arkansas and Alaska.
There will be even more availability of E-15, Growth Energy says, because “consumer demand for homegrown, high performance, low cost fuels cannot be ignored.”
