Wayne is preparing for the introduction of higher ethanol blends to the market by making E25 compliance a standard feature for its retail fuel dispensers.
Wayne Fueling Systems has announced that compatibility with UL-Listed fuel to E25 will now be a standard feature for all Wayne North American retail fuel dispensers. The shift is effective immediately for Wayne Ovation fuel dispensers, and by year-end for the Wayne Helix family of dispensers.
E25 gasoline is 25% ethanol and 75% petroleum, and with the potential shift to higher ethanol blends necessary to meet future fuel requirements brought about by more stringent CAFE standards and GHG reductions by 2025, this move is an expression of Wayne’s continued intent of supplying its customers with the most flexible, reliable and future-proof equipment options. This follows the same thinking that led to the development of Wayne’s dual blending series, which enabled the maximum number fuel grade selections to support mid-level ethanol blends.
“We are pleased to be the first manufacturer to offer E25-Listed dispensers as standard to our North American dispenser product offering, reflecting the growing interest from our customers to prepare for any and all necessary changes to the fueling infrastructure in the future,” said Wayne vice president of products and services, Tom Cerovski.
At this time, 90% of dispensers in the industry are only certified to dispense E10 fuel.
