FLEX FUEL E85

CLEAN-BURNING ALTERNATIVE FUEL

Flex Fuel E85 is an ethanol-based, clean-burning alternative to petroleum gasoline. Derived today from fermented grains and sugars, it is formulated for use in Flex Fuel Vehicles (FFVs). Comprised of 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline, high octane E85 increases engine performance while improving local air quality. Unlike petroleum, E85 is made from renewable resources like corn, sugar cane, and next generation sources such as switch grass and agricultural waste material.

KNOW THE FACTS

Cleaner Emissions
Produces less harmful emissions than gasoline. Ethanol reduces tailpipe carbon monoxide emissions by 30%, reducing smog and air toxins, such as benzene, by 21%, and tailpipe particulate matter (PM) emissions by 50%.
Made In America
Products made in America is an important part of what makes us our country great. The ethanol industry creates jobs, reduces our dependency on foreign oil, and supports the domestic economy.
High Octane Rating
The 100+ octane allows E85 to be used in higher compression engines, which tend to produce more power per unit of displacement than their gasoline counterparts.
Less per gallon
We know that as a consumer you're looking to save at the pump. That's why the big benefit with E-85 is price. E85 is often cheaper per gallon than traditional gasoline.

HYDROGEN FUEL

The Hydrogen fuel is supplied by First Element and they have coined their fuel True Zero. True Zero is manufactured to be safe, non-toxic and pose no environmental hazards. When Hydrogen is consumed in a fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV), the only byproduct is water vapor with zero harmful emissions. True Zero is produced entirely from domestic sources. Currently, two thirds of True Zero’s hydrogen comes from fossil fuels and one third from renewable bio-mass.

B20 BIODIESEL

G&M offers B20 Biodiesel at select G&M Branded and Chevron Branded locations. Biodiesel is a renewable, biodegradable alternative fuel made primarily from renewable resources such as vegetable oils, animal fats, and greases. It is considered a cleaner burning domestic replacement to petroleum diesel. The B20 Biodiesel contains up to 20% B100 blendstock that has been added to existing quality Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel. The amount of biodiesel mixed into petroleum diesel is the products blend level; commonly abbreviated to “B” and then that number.

Generally, B20 and lower level blends an be used in current engines without any modifications. In fact, many diesel engine original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) approve the use of B20. Consumers should always check their vehicle and engine warranty statements before using biodiesel.
