Ethanol and E85
E85 is the term for motor fuel blends of 85 percent ethanol and just 15 percent
gasoline. E85 is an alternative fuel as defined by the U.S. Department of
Energy. Besides its superior performance characteristics, ethanol burns
cleaner than gasoline; it is a completely renewable, domestic, environmentally
friendly fuel that enhances the nation's economy and energy independence.
E85 is currently available at over 2700 service stations nationwide and that
number continues to grow on a daily basis.

There are a number of reasons why E85 ethanol is better than gasoline:
E85 is much cleaner than gasoline, and emits a smaller amount of smog precursors
and greenhouse gases for every gallon of fuel consumed.
E85 is renewable. Getting more homegrown ethanol is simply a matter of planting new crops.
The United States has the capacity to produce an enormous amount of ethanol.
E85 is American. Instead of supporting foreign regimes that can hold our foreign policy
hostage, E85 promises to help liberate us from foreign energy dependence.
E85 can help create jobs in the US for farmers and refiners.
STOP COMPARING E85 TO REGULAR GASOLINE!
E85 outperforms any fuel available at the pump. E85 fuel rating is 105 octane, regular
gasoline fuel rating is 87 octane, midgrade gas is 89, and premium fuel rating is 91 or 92.
E85 is a far superior fuel and should be compared with premium gas pricing. E85 is not only
comparable to Premium fuel it actually outperforms the premium gasoline rating in all catagories.
The octane fuel rating is a measure of the resistance of gasoline and other fuels to
detonation (engine knocking) in spark-ignition internal combustion engines.
High-performance engines typically have higher compression ratios and are therefore more
prone to detonation, so they require higher octane fuel. A lower-performance engine will
generally perform better with high-octane fuel, since the compression ratio is fixed by the
The octane number of the fuel rating is measured in a test engine, and is defined by
comparison with the mixture of iso-octane and normal heptane which would have the same
anti-knocking capacity as the fuel under test: the percentage, by volume, of iso-octane in that
mixture is the octane number of the fuel. For example, gasoline with the same knocking
characteristics as a mixture of 90% iso-octane and 10% heptane would have an octane rating
of 90. Because some fuels are more knock-resistant than iso-octane, the definition has
been extended to allow for octane rating higher than 100.
