Jefferson City, Missouri – The number of E85 refuelling locations across the United States now exceeds 1,200, according to a report by the National Ethanol Vehicle Coalition (NEVC).

Last year at this time, there were only 750 locations supplying E85 (85 per cent ethanol, 15 per cent gasoline); currently, there are 70 privately-accessed and 1,134 publicly-accessed E85 sites.

“Growth and interest in E85 fuel and infrastructure is continuing at a rapid pace,” says Greg Krissek, Chairman of the NEVC. “We are thrilled to celebrate this milestone and look forward to helping to grow the nation’s E85 infrastructure even more in the coming months.”
