Growth Energy says U.S. drivers have reached 500 million
miles on E15 fuels.
In a statement this week, Growth Energy said the figure was based on sales and consumption data reported over the past 12 months by gasoline retailers.
The organization says the milestone highlights the fuel’s performance, safety, and value for American consumers.
Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor says: “drivers are finding out that E15, which contains 15 percent ethanol, is an even better choice for their wallets, their engines and the environment.”
E15 works for any vehicle 2001 and newer and is the most tested fuel to date, according to Growth Energy.
Additionally, automakers approve E15 for use in nearly three-quarters of new cars, and the Environmental Protection Agency approves its use in 9 out of 10 cars on the road today.
