  1. Speedway has moved their E85/unleaded differential to $1/gal in OH, KY, IL and IN. If you are in those areas, enjoy! The price of RINS, combined with the large spread between ethanol and gasoline, have led to some favorable E85 prices for many. Robert RFA
  2. RFA has released its MY18 Flex Fuel Vehicle (FFV) Brochure. You can view it here: www.ChooseEthanol.com/FFV. Robert RFA
  3. Raise Your Voice or Lose Your Choice: RFA Launches #FlexMyChoice FFV Awareness Campaign NEW ORLEANS — Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) President and CEO Bob Dinneen announced today at the National Ethanol Conference (NEC) the launch of the “Flex My Choice” campaign, which is designed to voice consumer support for flex-fuel vehicles (FFVs). This effort is aimed directly at automakers, auto dealerships, and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Dinneen said the time is ripe for such a campaign because, as the government phases out CAFE credits for producing FFVs, automakers have begun to limit the total number of FFV models that roll off their assembly lines. “The auto companies claim there has not been meaningful consumer demand for these vehicles and the incremental cost, albeit trivial, cannot be justified in the absence of a more balanced CAFE regime,” said Dinneen. “The ethanol industry needs to demonstrate the continued enthusiasm for FFVs. We want to raise our voices so that E85 and other mid-level ethanol fuels remain viable options for consumers.” As part of the campaign, RFA intends to distribute 75,000 postcard pamphlets to targeted parties across the country in the hopes of changing the conversation on the future of FFV production. The postcard pamphlets will contain five panels: the first panel is a brief introduction to the issues; panels 2 through 4 are individual postcards to General Motors, Ford Motor Company, and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (the “Detroit Three”); and the fifth panel contains a pledge that consumers can drop off at their local auto dealership. Additionally, the campaign launched two petitions on www.Change.org directed at the automakers and the EPA respectively. “It goes without saying that when consumers’ choices within a given market are limited, everyone loses,” said Robert White, RFA’s vice president of industry relations. “The ‘Flex My Choice’ campaign intends to ensure that consumers have choices when it comes to buying and fueling their vehicles. Thanks to USDA, the ethanol industry, and agriculture, 2016 will mark the largest expansion of E85 stations in history; it is not the time to stop the momentum. This campaign will send a clear signal to the automakers, their auto dealerships, and the EPA that there is a real demand on the part of consumers for more vehicle choices, more choices at the pump and increased access to higher ethanol blends.” For postcard pamphlets and additional information, go to www.FlexMyChoice.com. Consumers are encouraged to amplify their support for FFVs on social media using the hashtag #FlexMyChoice.
  4. I had received several reports from the field stating the following: · Consumers can no longer buy the Yukon, Tahoe or Suburban as FFVs. Only fleets, no way around it. · Consumers can buy the Sierra and Silverado as an FFV, but now you have to pay an extra $100 for the option. GM Corporate really beat around the bush on this one, but finally admitted both were true. So, their most popular SUVs ever are not FFVs, despite what they told us and DOE pre-MY15. This will definitely put a dent in FFV numbers for 2015. Robert
  5. I thought I would give all of you a head's up, changes are coming in the E85 station count. RFA has worked closely with the Department of Energy to verify each station on their database and the one that lives at E85prices.com. In the end, DOE's number will be growing, and our number will be dropping. We are in the final stages of verification, but I anticipate a 10-15% drop, if not more. As always, please keep submitting new stations, changes to existing stations and deletions. The number of E85 stations will continue to grow. I personally know of hundreds scheduled for debut, and they are all over the country. Let me know if you have any questions. Robert
  6. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE April 14, 2015 More E85 for California WASHINGTON — Pearson Fuels and G&M Oil Company are celebrating their latest partnership with the grand opening of California’s newest E85 station at 499 Sandalwood Drive in Calimesa. There will be a ribbon-cutting celebration today and E85 will be available from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. for just 85 cents a gallon. This event is part of a much larger announcement of the two companies. Pearson Fuels and G&M Oil Company have announced 13 new E85 stations slated for California. Robert White, vice president of industry relations at the Renewable Fuels Association, commented, “It is great to see the second largest flex-fuel vehicle (FFV) market get more E85 stations. RFA congratulates Pearson Fuels and G&M Oil Company for identifying the need to bring this low-cost, cleaner-burning, alternative fuel throughout California. Consumers are searching for options, and many will now find E85.” E85 is approved for use in all flex-fuel vehicles and more than 3,400 stations are offering higher-level ethanol blends to consumers nationwide.

  7. Pearson Fuels has announced that San Francisco finally has E85. They are hosting a grand opening event tomorrow morning and offering discounted E85 for just $.85/gallon. All Stars Fuel 2831 Cesar Chavez St. San Francisco, CA
  8. Ethanol is always catching flack for "subsidies". Most don't realize the Volumetric Ethanol Excise Tax Credit (VEETC) expired in 2011, along with the import tariff and for the most part, the infrastructure tax credit. Some claim the RFS is a subsidy, which is borderline comical. I thought I would share EIA's report from today on energy subsidies. You can see that fossil fuels still dominate all renewables, and ironically this week is also the 113th anniversary of oil subsidies. http://1.usa.gov/1AuIXoq Robert
