  1. Looking good Robert.. .big improvement was making the site responsive depending on device..looks great on Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
  2. $100 Million In Grants ..! 5,000 pumps offering higher blends of ethanol nationwide. Fact Sheet: USDA Invests in Clean Energy Economy, Supporting U.S. Producers and Seeking to Double Number of Higher Blend Renewable Fuel Pumps Available to ConsumersTo create new markets for U.S. farmers and ranchers, help Americans save money on their energy bills, support America's clean energy economy, cut carbon pollution, and reduce dependence on foreign oil and costly fossil fuels, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) continues to aggressively pursue investments in American-grown renewable energy. As part of that commitment, USDA is investing $100 million in clean energy infrastructure that will make more options available to American consumers. USDA recently announced that 21 states will receive the funds, through the Biofuel Infrastructure Partnership, to install nearly 5,000 pumps offering higher blends of ethanol nationwide. This will be made possible by matching the $100 million federal investment with private and state resources at a more than one-to-one ratio. Through the Biofuel Infrastructure Partnership, USDA will test innovative ways to distribute higher blends of renewable fuel. A typical gas pump can deliver fuel that contains a maximum 10 percent ethanol, which limits the amount of renewable energy most consumers can purchase at the pump, despite the fact that our farmers now produce record amounts of renewable biofuels. This new investment seeks to double the number of fuel pumps capable of supplying higher blends of renewable fuel to consumers, such as E15 and E85. This will also expand markets for farmers and help them diversify their rural energy portfolios, support rural economic growth and the jobs that come with it, and ultimately give consumers more affordable options at the pump. The United States exported more than $2 billion dollars of ethanol last year, making the United States the world's largest exporter of ethanol. Other countries are investing in clean energy technologies because they realize the tremendous economic potential of these energy sources, and we must do the same to remain competitive. Still, a combination of factors is creating uncertain times for America's corn and soybean producers. Lower commodity prices and reduced demand for feed as the poultry industry recovers from the highly pathogenic avian influenza virus are putting pressure on producers and sectors of the U.S. economy. These competitive grants will create additional markets for feedstock commodities and will be funded through USDA's Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC), which was created to stabilize, support, and protect farm income and prices. Increased domestic production and use of renewable energy, paired with growing renewable energy exports, has the potential to support hundreds of thousands of jobs in rural communities. This announcement builds on USDA's ongoing efforts to work with farmers and ranchers to support a robust clean energy economy in rural America, including: http://www.fsa.usda.gov/programs-and-services/energy-programs/. http://www.fsa.usda.gov/programs-and-services/energy-programs/ http://www.ethanolproducer.com/articles/12612/usda-announces-grants-to-expand-e15-e85-infrastructure
  3. Kwik Trip is adding 2 Stations in St Cloud MN..probably not until late Fall at the soonest .. I know one of them will be a Truck Stop style version I expect that one for certain to carry E85
  4. Seriously come on Guys I posted prices a few days ago that are not been approved yet either..it's really not that difficult to log in a few times during the day and approve prices.. it is VERY important that this is done every few hours ..ESPECIALLY considering it is a high travel weekend ..Labor Day
  5. Prices, Price Spreads and Charts are way off because someone didn't add a decimal... E86 $215 and Gas $265..just go in the database add the decimal and it will sort out
  6. Too Funny..if it wasn't so disturbing.. HOUSTON (Reuters) - Oilman Harold Hamm, CEO of Continental Resources Inc., told a University of Oklahoma dean last year that scientists studying links between oil drilling and earthquakes should be dismissed, Bloomberg News reported on Friday. Bloomberg, citing emails obtained through a public records request, said Hamm indicated he wanted to see some scientists at the Oklahoma Geological Survey, which is based at the university, let go. Scientists have said the reinjection of drilling and fracking wastewater into disposal walls could be tied to earthquakes. Bloomberg said a university spokeswoman denied any interference from Hamm, who has been a donor to the university. Bloomberg said no changes were made to the university's team of scientists. http://news.yahoo.com/oil-ceo-hamm-sought-ouster-scientists-looking-quakes-030855352--finance.html
  7. The Injectors I went with are nearly roughly 27% larger.. I wouldn't run E10 in it..would be way too rich.. although the ECU "may" be able to adjust to that extreme? I'll test pne of these days and let you know.
  8. Nothing Yet Rick.. He is looking though. Dan, Let me take a look. Might have a set to compare and find flow rates for you, as well as something 20% larger. Martin
  9. Morning Rick, I sent a message to the ebay seller that I purchased my fuel injectors from to see if he can find out which injectors will work for you. ..I told him you wanted 20% larger.. that should allow you to run some gasoline as well if ever needed . Best conversion I ever did was with the larger fuel injectors.. for the Jeep it works perfect . Zero issues AND keep in mind larger fuel injectors does not mean you will automatically lose more mpg.. ecu will only send as much fuel as you need AND if it makes the correct adjustment and gets you near lamda to we're combustion is near perfect you may actually see better mpg.
  10. Here's the consideration I used.. If they wont pay $1.99 then they have no real interest in E85 AND if it is free that means anyone and everyone will download the APP and start posting bogus prices.."just because they can" .
  11. Exactly Greengenes.. really gets my blood boiling too And to top if off the Sales staff no virtual ZERO about E85
  12. Look how the yellow is filling in since the beginning of the Months ..
  13. Thanks for the link Robert..that does lend clarity to the issue
  14. Just had a Bus driver at work get a new Jeep Loredo. He did not know it ran on E85 until he was going through the manual. Since he see's me pull into work with E85 plastered all over my Jeep ..he started asking questions and says he will start running E85 as well Same thing though about MPG.. that was really his main concern... We need 2 things before Obama leaves office.. a FFV mandate (Which he and Biden both supported) ..so that E85 becomes more mainstream .. and with that mainstream usage the call for better MPG could be enough for the Auto INdustry to getting working on a hardware and software solution..like they do with some vehicles with economy mode , sport mode etc.. E85 mode Gasoline mode selection
  15. The Iowa Renewable Fuels Association (IRFA) today announced Iowa motorists purchased 2,930,635 gallons of E85 in the fourth quarter of 2014, and a record-setting 11,962,764 million gallons in all of 2014, according to data released by the Iowa Department of Revenue. The nearly 12 million gallons of E85 sold in 2014 is more than a 1 million gallon increase over the previous record in 2013. The nearly 3 million gallons sold in the fourth quarter of 2014 is also a fourth quarter record. “Another year, and another E85 sales record in Iowa,” stated IRFA Executive Director Monte Shaw. “The most impressive aspect of this record is that retail gasoline prices dropped significantly in the second half of the fourth quarter of 2014, yet Iowa motorists remained committed to the homegrown, cleaner-burning fuel by setting a new fourth quarter record for E85 purchases. This fourth quarter data proves that not only is E85 being purchased at a record rate where available in Iowa, but consumers are realizing the benefits of this more locally-produced, environmentally-friendly fuel, beyond simply its cost advantages.” In Iowa, E85 is a fuel blend containing between 70 and 85 percent ethanol. E85 is currently sold at about 200 fueling sites in Iowa, and can be used in all flex-fuel vehicles (FFV). To determine if your vehicle can use E85, please check your owner’s manual or the vehicle’s fuel cap. Iowa is the nation’s leader in renewable fuels production. Iowa has 43 ethanol refineries capable of producing more than 3.8 billion gallons annually, including 22 million gallons of annual cellulosic ethanol production capacity and one cellulosic ethanol facility currently under construction. In addition, Iowa has 12 biodiesel facilities with the capacity to produce nearly 315 million gallons annually. The Iowa Renewable Fuels Association was formed in 2002 to represent the state’s liquid renewable fuels industry. The trade group fosters the development and growth of the renewable fuels industry in Iowa through education, promotion, legislation and infrastructure development. http://kiow.com/2015/03/18/iowa-sets-new-e85-sales-record-in-2014/
