E15 now available at 135 stations across the state

JOHNSTON, IOWA – In recent weeks four Iowa retailers have added E15 as a new fuel choice at 10 stations.

Kwik Star, a retailer based out of Wisconsin, added E15 to seven Iowa stations. Over the course of the next few years, Kwik Trip – which operates in Iowa under the name “Kwik Star” – intends to add E15 to almost all of its 550 locations in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa.

Iowa-based Kum & Go added E15 to a location in Ames. Kum & Go is actively adding the fuel to all new locations. Motorists can now purchase E15 from 58 Kum & Go stores across Iowa.

The last two locations – Super Mart in Oelwein and Best Food Mart in Des Moines – are independently owned. In addition to E15, Super Mart offers E10 and Best Food Mart offers E85.

“More and more retailers are recognizing that E15 is a lower-cost, higher-performing option that customers want,” said Iowa Renewable Fuels Association (IRFA) Executive Director Monte Shaw. “The fuel is now available in more locations than ever before. It is only a matter of time before it is the number one fuel choice for all motorists across the state.”

E15 is the cleanest fuel available to all 2001 and newer vehicles. It reduces emissions of both greenhouse gases and cancer-causing chemicals.

“Considering E15 is the newest fuel on the market, there are a lot of environmental and health benefits people may not realize,” said IRFA Managing Director Lucy Norton. “After all, what goes in that fuel tank is going to come out the tailpipe. Consumers deserve to know there is a healthier option available.”

E15 is a fuel made of 15 percent ethanol and 85 percent petroleum and is approved for all 2001 and newer vehicles. To find an E15 station near you, click here. All new stations include:
