The introduction of E15 fuel will expand RaceTrac’s fuel offering at more than 100 company stores.
RaceTrac has announced that it will soon be expanding its fuel offering with the launch of E15 fuel in its stores throughout the South. The debut of the new fuel will occur later this year, and the company intends to offer E15 fuel at more than 100 stores.
E15 fuel is a higher octane fuel that is a combination of 15% ethanol and 85% gasoline. Consumers may find advantages to using E15 fuel, including improved vehicle performance due to ethanol burning cleaner and cooler in engines, and potentially lower prices at the pump. In 2011, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved E15 for use in vehicles built after 2001.
“RaceTrac’s mission is to make people’s lives simpler and more enjoyable, and offering a variety of fuel types to appeal to our guests’ needs is one of the ways we deliver on that mission,” said Max McBrayer, chief supply officer at RaceTrac. “With the debut of E15 in more than 100 of our stores, RaceTrac is proud to provide our guests a competitively priced alternative fuel option to complement our already diverse offering which today includes other alternative fuel products such as E85 flex-fuel.”
Customers can visit RaceTrac.com over the next few months to find a nearby RaceTrac store offering E15 or other alternative fuels such as E85 for flex-fuel vehicles.
