September 9, 2004 [SolarAccess.com] Renewable fuels are becoming an established option in Minnesota as the state now boasts 100 filling stations that offer E85 to customers. E85 is a gasoline blend of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent petroleum. E85 can be used in an increasing number of late model cars, trucks, SUVs and minivans designed as “flexible fuel” vehicles. Minnesota requires most gasoline sold in the state to be blended with at least 10 percent ethanol to make the fuel burn cleaner. Soon, the state will also require all diesel fuel sold in the state to include a two percent blend of biodiesel, according to the American Lung Association of Minnesota (ALAM). ALAM promotes the use of cleaner burning fuels on its website below.
