June 6, 2017

Lincoln, NE

Later this week fuel retailer, Pump & Pantry will promote E15 and E85 with a promotional event where consumers can purchase clean ethanol blended fuels for their vehicles at a discount.

E15 is a blend of 15% ethanol and 85% gasoline.  It is an environmentally-friendly fuel that burns cleaner than gasoline.

Consumers will have the ability to purchase renewable fuels like E85 for just 85 cents, as well as E15 at the Pump & Pantry located at West O Street, and Sun Valley Blvd. in Lincoln on Thursday, June 8 from 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.   To kick this promotion off, there will be a ribbon cutting at 2:30 p.m. to mark the grand opening of Pump & Pantry’s new flex fuel pumps, which will dispense E85 and E15 (Clean 88).

"To give consumers the option to purchase clean fuels like E15, and E85 is good for Nebraska, and good for the environment.  Our economy in Nebraska is a major leader to the renewable fuels markets throughout the nation, and now, right here in Lincoln, we will offer more of these fuels to consumers," said Mark Palmer, Executive Director of Renewable Fuels Nebraska.  "We appreciate what Pump & Pantry will offer because its the right thing for our state, and the economic driver behind it.  Pump & Pantry's steadfast interest in renewable fuels vital to the further developing fuels markets"

RFN is the producer organization of Nebraska ethanol producers, that together produce nearly 2.25 billion gallons annually, and home to 25 ethanol plants.  Nebraska is the second largest ethnaol prodicing state in the U.S.  The most recent data produced by UNL suggests Nebraska’s capacity stands at 2,077 million gallons per year with actual production nearing 2,225 million gallons.
