Murphy oil adding e15/85 across Iowa!

Recommended Posts

Murphy USA is now offering E15 and E85 in Indianola, Iowa location. This station is the first one to begin selling the ethanol fuel blends in Iowa, with six more locations coming online over the next few months. By the end of the summer, E15 and E85 will be available at Murphy USA locations in Clinton, Davenport, Fort Dodge, Mason City, Newton, and Sioux City, Iowa. Murphy USA made a major announcement several months ago that it would begin offering E15 and higher level ethanol blends to consumers at its retail stations throughout the country.

 

“We are very proud Murphy USA chose to expand its offerings of cleaner-burning ethanol blends in Iowa,” said Iowa Renewable Fuels Association (IRFA) Managing Director Lucy Norton. “There is strong collaboration in Iowa for servicing the E15 market, making it an ideal place to offer E15 at multiple locations. When the conversion is complete, motorists in seven large Iowa cities will have easy access to lower-cost, more locally-produced ethanol blends.”

 

In accordance with summertime fuel regulations, E15 will only be sold to flex-fuel vehicles throughout the summer driving season at Murphy USA locations. In mid-September, E15 will be available to all consumers driving 2001 and or newer vehicle. In addition, Iowa motorists will soon have greater access to biodiesel at Murphy USA’s Clinton, Davenport, Fort Dodge, Mason City, and Sioux City locations.

 

“We’re happy to see a major retailer like Murphy USA move their E15 and E85 efforts into Iowa,” added Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) Director of Market Development Robert White. “This should demonstrate to others that the business case for these fuels exists, and that more chains will follow Murphy USA’s lead.”

 

The Murphy USA Indianola fueling site is located at 1502 N. Jefferson Street. Of Murphy USA’s 1,200 stations in 23 states, the Indianola location will be the second Murphy USA station to offer E15, and the third Murphy USA station to offer E85. In addition to higher ethanol blends, Murphy USA’s Iowa locations will offer three grades of gasoline blended with 10 percent ethanol.

We have 2 gas stations opening here soon, a Murphy USA (next to Walmart of course) and Casey's General Store.

 

I contacted both of them and asked about E85 or other alternative fuels.

 

While Casey's informed me that they do not offer E85 (or any alternative fuel at all), Murphy USA said that they will forward my inquiry (which stated that I am one of many E85 users) to the management for decission.

 

Ha!

 

Greetings!

Ummmmm... what the heck does THIS sentence mean...

 

E15 will only be sold to flex-fuel vehicles throughout the summer driving season at Murphy USA locations.

 

When I am pumping E-85 into MY cars, I'd like to see somebody stop me. I do it all year long in all the vehicles I have owned since 2006 or something!!!

 

Worst thing that ever happened to me was an odd look from another customer or two, but even that is rare.

My thoughts exactly, Steve. My only guess is what Carbon Green BioEnergy had to go through. Because it's unreasonable to expect E15 customers to purchase more than 4 gallons every time, and to avoid the cost of a third hose just for E15, the company just stuck E15 with the E85 hose. Because it comes out of the same nozzle as E85, E15 had to be labeled as "for Flex Fuel Vehicles only". My suspicion is that they want to get E15 and E85 infrastructure and conversions rolling before they begin adding a third hose for E15.
