Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) is proud to announce the Flex-Fuel Station Locator application for Android phones. This application is free and easy to download. Now, flex-fuel vehicle (FFV) drivers will always know where they can fuel up next.
This new program provides the customer with location, fuel price, directions and a phone number to all E85 (85% ethanol, 15% gasoline) stations in their area.
To develop this application, the RFA utilized the E85 station database hosted by the Alternative Fuels & Advanced Vehicles Data Center and the U.S. Department of Energy. With this continuously updated data, the Flex-Fuel Station Locator application is able to locate more than 2,400 E85 fueling stations throughout the United States.
“Being able to provide America’s consumers with more access to flex-fuel stations is helping raise awareness of the increasing amount of alternative fuels that are available to them,” said RFA Market Development Director, Robert White. “As more Americans fuel up with domestic fuel, we can reduce our dependency on foreign oil and increase energy security.”
