Antiquated EERE E85 database revealed by E85Prices.com

Recommended Posts



Dear Assistant Secretary Danielson,

We are writing today to make you aware of important omissions in the Office of Energy Efficiency &

Renewable Energy’s (EERE) database of E85 fueling station locations, and to request that these

deficiencies are corrected as soon as possible. Specifically, the EERE Alternative Fuels Data Center

(AFDC) database excludes hundreds of stations that are in fact offering E85 for sale today. . .

. . .

As of July 22, 2014, the AFDC database listed just 2,391 retail locations selling E85 nationwide. On the

same date, the popular “crowd-sourced” web site E85prices.com listed 3,349 retail locations offering

E85—40% more than AFDC. In other words, nearly 1,000 stations appearing on the E85prices.com list

are absent from the AFDC database. Notably, stations listed on E85prices.com are reported by drivers

who actually fill up with E85 at the listed locations, meaning there should be little doubt as to the

accuracy of the information.
