E15 is Now Available for 2001 and Newer Vehicles at 30 Locations in Iowa

JOHNSTON, IOWA – The Iowa Renewable Fuels Association (IRFA) today announced Iowa’s 2001 and newer vehicle owners can once again benefit from cheaper, cleaner, more homegrown E15. Starting today, Iowa’s 30 retail locations will resume offering registered E15 to 2001 and newer vehicles, providing consumers with a cleaner, less expensive, and more locally-produced fueling option.

E15 is approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for use in all 2001 and newer passenger vehicles, as well as flex-fuel vehicles (FFVs). Those vehicles account for 85 percent of fuel use in the United States.

“E15 provides many Iowans the lowest-cost, cleanest-burning option compared to gasoline, and we’re excited 2001 and newer vehicle owners in Iowa can once again reap the benefits,” stated IRFA Executive Director Monte Shaw. “Not only is E15 the most tested fuel in history, we’ve already driven millions of miles proving it’s safe for use. Iowans driving 2001 and newer vehicles and are seeking to support Iowa jobs, improve air quality, and save money doing so should look no further – choose E15.”
