United Cooperative offers E15 at 10 Wisconsin retail stations

By Renewable Fuels Association | May 05, 2014

In a boost to rural communities, Beaver Dam, Wis.-based United Cooperative is offering E15 at 10 stations throughout Wisconsin. United Cooperative introduced blender pumps at their Cenex convenience stores in Beaver Dam, Baraboo, Hustisford, Iron Ridge, Pickett, Poynette, Reedsburg, Watertown, and Wyocena.

The addition of these Wisconsin convenience stores bumps the total number of E15 stations to 75 in 12 states that offer the higher-level fuel blend to those with vehicles 2001 and newer. United Cooperative’s convenience stores also offer mid-level blends including E30 and E85, which are available for use in flex-fuel vehicles.

“United Cooperative understands the vital importance of choice in the transportation fuel market. The addition of blender pumps to these 10 stations give the people of Wisconsin access to E15, E30, and E85, all low-cost fuel options,” said Robert White, director of market development at the Renewable Fuels Association. “The expansion of E15 in Wisconsin is only the beginning as retailers continue to see the economic benefits of installing blender pumps and offering higher-level ethanol blends to their customers.”

David Cramer, United Cooperative president and chief executive officer, noted, “Ethanol-blended fuels like E15 are better for the environment, originate from locally-grown corn, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. United Cooperative enjoys offering our customers multiple ethanol options at the pump and doing our part to support the American economy.”

E15 is the most tested fuel additive in the history of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It was approved by the EPA for use in 2001 and newer vehicles after 6.5 million miles of testing. It was introduced into the market in July of 2012 and has been driven more than 65 million miles with no known cases of engine damage or misfueling.
