Wisconsin Leads the Way in Biofuel Consumption
Renew Fuel Station Sells One Millionth Gallon of E85
MILWAUKEE – Last week, the Renew Fuel Station in Howard, Wisconsin became the second station to sell one million gallons of E85, a fuel containing 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline. Renew has offered E85 at its Howard station since it first opened in February 2006.
“This milestone shows that Wisconsin is leading the way with biofuel consumption,” said Joshua Morby, Executive Director of the Wisconsin Bio Industry Alliance. “We are proud that this is the second time that a Renew station has sold one million gallons of E85, a clean, renewable fuel that will help improve our environment, reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and build our economy.”
Utica Energy is leading the way with responsible ethanol pricing. They are one of only a handful of companies that are blending and marketing their own ethanol fuels.
