E15 coming to four locations

The Nebraska Ethanol Board applauds the Frontier Co-op’s decision to offer E15 at four of its retail fuel locations in east central Nebraska. E15 is a higher-octane blend consisting of fifteen percent ethanol and gasoline. Beginning September 20th, it will be available at the Co-op’s stations in Brainard, Ceresco, Dwight, and Weston.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s recent approval of the higher ethanol blend gives consumers a lower cost choice at the pump at a time of rising gas prices. E-15 is expected to be priced about twenty cents a gallon less than no-lead gasoline. Vehicles of the model years 2001 and newer along with drivers of the state’s one hundred and fifty thousand Flex Fuel vehicles can purchase E-15.
