Some Things To Remember About E85:
IT’S AN AMERICAN MADE FUEL
Last year, ethanol production helped reduce foreign oil dependence by 485 million barrels. American ethanol production created 87,292 jobs last year and sustained another 383,261. Ethanol production has continued to expand geographically, with 211 ethanol biorefineries now operating in 29 states, bringing economic opportunity to tens of thousands of Americans, many of whom live in rural areas. The 13.3 billion gallons of ethanol production in 2012 reduced America’s need for imported oil for gasoline refining by 465 million barrels.
Did you know that E85 is higher octane for less money at the pump?
REDUCTION IN TAILPIPE EMISSIONS
According to Dr. Michael Wang of Argonne National Laboratory, one gallon of ethanol reduces CO2 emissions by 6.41 pounds. Recent research has found that CO2 is the largest contributor of global climate change, the term used to categorize significant climate changes that are detrimental to human and plant life. Last year, ethanol reduced greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles by 33.4 million tons. That’s equivalent to removing 5.2 million cars and pickups from the road each year (comparable to the number of registered vehicles in the state of Michigan).
