Murphy USA Inc., a marketer of retail motor fuel products and convenience merchandise, has announced an expansion program that will bring E15 to consumers in the suburbs of Chicago and Houston in 2015.
After several successful introductions of the new fuel in Iowa, Murphy USA will now offer E15 in select new locations coming in 2015.
“We are excited to offer E15 in addition to our existing product offerings. Murphy USA will continue to pursue opportunities to offer the fuel our customers desire,” said a spokesperson for Murphy USA. E15, a blend of gasoline and 15% ethanol, is EPA-approved to be used by 2001 and newer passenger vehicles and all flexible fuel vehicles.
Those vehicles account for 85% of fuel use in the U.S.
Murphy USA operates more than 1,200 stores in 23 states and employs more than 9,000 people.
