WASHINGTON — The Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) has been a leader in the ethanol industry promoting the production and use of flex-fuel vehicles (FFVs) and the expansion and distribution of E85 (85 percent ethanol, 15 percent gasoline). RFA’s newly updated 2014 flex-fuel vehicle brochure explains in detail which makes and models are available as FFVs. There are more than 16 million FFVs on the road today and more than 3,200 stations nationwide that offer E85.
“Flex-fuel vehicles come in many different makes, models, shapes and sizes,” said Robert White, RFA’s director of market development. “I would encourage anyone looking to purchase a new vehicle to consider a flex-fuel vehicle which offers more choices when filling up at the pump.”
According to www.E85prices.com/Michigan the average price of E85 in Michigan today is $2.65, compared to today’s average gasoline price of $3.22. E85 prices dipped as low as $1.99 today in Lake Odessa, Mich.
E85 stations can easily be located through an app on any iPhone or Android system in addition to Garmin and TomTom GPS devices. For more information on flex-fuel vehicles and E85 please visit www.ChooseEthanol.com.
