JOHNSTON, IOWA – New Century FS Fast Stop in Vinton, Iowa today announced it’s now offering lower-cost, cleaner-burning E15 to 2001 and newer vehicles. To introduce its new product to area motorists, the Vinton Fast Stop is offering E15 at a 5-cent per gallon discount for the entire month of April, with valid coupon.
“Compared to regular gasoline, E15 provides the majority of Iowans with a lower-cost, higher-octane fuel option, and we’re excited 2001 and newer vehicle owners near Vinton can reap the benefits,” stated IRFA Managing Director Lucy Norton. “With more than 30 stations in Iowa offering E15 as a registered fuel, and more on the way, retailers in our state are leading the way in providing cost-conscious motorists with the most environmentally-friendly fueling option available.”
“We at New Century FS and Growmark have always been supportive of renewable fuels,” stated New Century FS Energy Marketing Manager Kevin DeGoey. “Offering E15 is another way to add more value to our company, renewable fuels and our customers.”
E15 is a blend of 15 percent ethanol and 85 percent gasoline that is now available at a significant discount to regular, unleaded gasoline at 31 locations in Iowa. 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. In order to offer E15 to non-FFVs, a retailer must register with the EPA. IRFA works with retailers to ensure they comply with all federal and state E15 regulations.
New Century FS Fast Stop, located at 1112 West 4th Street in Vinton, also offers E30, E50 and E85 for flex-fuel vehicles.
