Thorntons now offers E-85 Flex Fuel at 36 stores: seven in Illinois, 11 in Indiana, 11 in Kentucky, and seven in Tennessee.
E-85 is an alcohol-based fuel, comprised of just 15% petroleum. Ethanol can be made from virtually any agriculture feedstock from which starch is derived, such as sugar cane, wheat or milo. Today, the vast majority of domestic ethanol is produced from corn, an abundant and renewable grain.
E-85 as an alternative fuel has experienced tremendous growth in the last 10 years. The growth is due primarily to the fuel’s many benefits as a renewable fuel that helps create a cleaner environment, boosts the U.S. economy and reduces oil imports.
“We are very excited about the expansion of E-85 fuel in our stores,” said Matt Thornton, president and CEO of Thorntons. “We support the use of ethanol, wherever it is economically available”.
