  2. I was checking prices recently, and saw something unusual. Yesterday, E10 prices took a dip, and I checked my BTU numbers. If my numbers are good, E15 is a better buy at under $2.824 if there's a fixed 5 cent difference. With E10 at $2.599 around here, that puts E15 in the better buy category. That didn't push E85 prices down like I thought, though. Family Express doesn't go by fixed difference pricing on E85. So it's still the same $2.099. What about stations like Speedway with a fixed spread? 60 in Indiana, 80 in Illinois, right? Well, that held, for like 1 day. Then they realized that they were selling E85 for $1.759 a gallon in Illinois, so they just changed all the spreads. 80 cents dropped to 60 cents in IL for the most part. 60 cent spreads in Indiana became 50 cents. So if you're in a fixed-spread area, you have to watch for price spikes *and* dips. Just one more thing to look out for.

    The Great Mishawaka E85 Price War of August 2018

    Oh I’ve been to the Speedway in Tinley Park, but even with an extra set of E85 pumps at that station, it is a pain in the behind to get in and out of. The intersection there is always slammed, and good luck getting a spot at a pump. Very much worth the extra few cents to go to the Gas N Wash. The free car wash also makes up for it, and I’m doing business with a place that actually wants to sell E85. Speedway, through their continued installation of just one E85 pump (technically two) out of 12-18 makes it clear that they do not care about how hard it is for so many of us to get to the E85 pump. When I finally do make it out to the Pacific Northwest (Idaho and Montana have a max speed limit of 80!), I’ll be carrying at least 20 gallons of E85 in the trunk. I’ll also have to not only call and confirm that they have E85 and that the pump is in working order (had that happen in October where I confirmed they had E85 but got there to find the pump was out of order). As far as E15, I’d be happy to express my feelings via DM. Let’s just say I’m using E85, and only E85.

    Speedway E85 Store Percentage

    https://www.cspdailynews.com/fuels-news-prices-analysis/fuels-news/articles/which-retailers-passed-failed-e15-e85?page=0%2C1 Just relinking the story in question. If you caught this article: http://www.ethanolproducer.com/articles/15498/on-the-brandwagon you might have noticed Casey's General Store in there, saying that they had 40 E15 stations and 10 to 15 on the way. I looked around for them, and added 10 of them to E85prices myself yesterday. A lot of them were only months or even weeks old, and every single one of them also sold E85. Given that Casey's has about 2000 locations, 40 would be a solid 2% and putting them on the way to 2.5%-2.75% of their locations selling E15, and likely will sell E85 as well. 2%, that's a D+ on the scale, working on a C-! Anyway, chains that were getting Fs on this report cards are definitely bringing up their grades, although in a roundabout away for us E85 lovers. E15 seems to be the skinny edge of the wedge. Once Unleaded 88 takes off, it's not too far a leap to go to Unleaded 95 to meet the possible 95 RON standard (nevermind that the 88 in Unleaded 88 is .5*(R+M) and not RON, the branding will smooth all that over!). How much ethanol will it have? Beats me, E25-ish, somewhere around there. I'm sure all those European cars designed for 95 RON will love it, though. And that is a big market.

    Unleaded 88 coming your way?

    Now that RVP season is almost over, here are some recent links on the rebranding of E15. They're going with Unleaded88 (or Regular88): http://www.ethanolproducer.com/articles/15503/branding-and-policies-with-a-little-production http://www.ethanolproducer.com/articles/15502/rvp-season-ends-new-identity-for-e15-begins http://www.ethanolproducer.com/articles/15498/on-the-brandwagon
  12. I'm actually not that hardcore about running E85 all the time. When the energy per volume metrics are favorable, sure, I'll run E85. But if it's about even, I'll mix up some blend, mathing it out and everything. I think my current blend is about E20, best guess since no one at Family Express that I talked to knew how much ethanol was in the E85 at the moment. Haven't found the right person yet! I just picked a number that sounded good, 70%. It's highest number I've found on a sticker on any FE pump, just not that particular pump. I'm guessing it's the same truck that fuels up Saint John that fuels up Crown Point, so I don't expect one place to be running 51% and the other 83% or whatever. Though I would like some cheap 51% ethanol E85, energy-dense! Anyway, getting about the same mileage I got with E10, so far, so good! Maybe I'll try E30 next time around. I even encourage people to try that E15 stuff, if it's energy-favorable. At a 5 cent spread, it's usually a wash, but if E10 prices get low enough, like around $2.499, then that 5 cent spread looks more and more appealing, and RVP season is just about over (ends on the 15th). In Brazil, I think they run around E25 for their "gasoline" and their ethanol is pure enough to drink (don't do that, it's illegal there!), hydrous E100. I suppose everyone down there has little cards like this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Gas_x_álcool_-_70_percent.svg to figure which is better in kilometers per liter, accounting for the 30% discount needed for alcohol. I suppose here we'd use an app. If people could see the miles per dollar savings, people would buy fuels blended with more ethanol. At least here in the Midwest. Out in the Pacific Northwest, they don't use corn for their ethanol. They use things like fruit processing plant waste. You want to see some heavily negative E10/E85 price spreads? Look no farther than Washington state! Some stations had E85 pushing $4 a gallon, and the less that was blended in on mid-level blends, the lower the price of the fuel. Bizarroland out there. I thought for sure that the station you were going to out in Tinley Park was the Speedway out there (http://www.garygasprices.com/Speedway_Gas_Stations/Tinley_Park/65/index.aspx). If you zig instead of zag (go north on Harlem instead of south to the Gas N Wash), you'll find it. E85 was 20 cents cheaper last time I looked, and with an 80 cent spread, a mere $2.029 a gallon. To my local Family Express, the western and eastern approaches are US-231(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Route_231_in_Indiana) from its northern (yeah, it bends) terminus to my local station and onward. It's Parrish Avenue that's treacherous these days (https://www.google.com/maps/@41.4201133,-87.4560941,16z/data=!5m1!1e1). I'll have to swing by, see if their 10 cents off per gallon perk is still going for their grand opening, that put E85 at $1.999 a gallon. Otherwise, the perk is 3 cents off a gallon, which is still pretty good since that particular station is priced competitively with everyone else in the area.
