WASHINGTON — Kum & Go announced today that it will offer E15 at its station in Windsor Heights, Iowa, starting April 30. The station, located at 7229 University Ave., will be the first of 65 stations where the retail chain plans to make E15 available over the next two years. Consumers with 2001 & newer vehicles can expect to find E15 at Kum & Go stations over this timeframe across seven states: Iowa, Nebraska, Arkansas, South Dakota, Colorado, Oklahoma, and Missouri. With all the recent announcements of stations planning to offer E15 to consumers, today’s announcement by Kum & Go will bring the total number of states offering E15 to 20.
“RFA would like to thank Kum & Go for their continued leadership in ethanol,” said Robert White, vice president of industry relations at the Renewable Fuels Association. “They have been offering E85 to consumers for years, and this addition of E15 in these seven states just makes sense. These continued E15 announcements demonstrate that the business case is solid for higher blends, and should lead other retailers to explore their options.”
RFA recently highlighted the number of vehicles that are explicitly warranted for E15. Read more here.
RFA has the necessary tools for retailers who want to offer E15. RFA has the only approved Misfueling Mitigation Plan (MMP) approved and required by EPA. RFA also offers the E15 Retailer Handbook and the required E15 label at no cost.
