E85 in RTP

Recommended Posts

My employer, IBM, claims there is a very competitively priced E85 station in RTP.

 

A new alternative fuel station just opened in RTP, at NC 55 at Sedwick Drive (the entrance to Parkwood). Two types of fuel -- B20 (20% biodiesel) and E85 (85% ethanol) -- are available at competitive prices.

IBM is encouraging alternative fuels and hybrid use.  I'm based in Dallas.  I telecommute or fly to customer sites so I see stations here and there.

 

When you ask Hertz for a FFV they just kind of look at you for a moment and then tell you that you'll have to pay more for that and assign a regular fuel vehicle anyway.  When I go to locations in states that have a good E85 infrastructure I usually try to buy E85 when I can find it. This site and the NEVC site help me find a station for refueling when I rent a car while traveling.

Most corporate travel is done via contracts with hotels, airlines and rental car agencies.  The majority of the corporate travel agencies use either Hertz or Avis, sometimes Budget.  Trying to get Enterprise is pretty tough.

 

Did you realize Verasun and Enterprise Rental Car teamed up to promote E85 in some areas anyway. Wouldn't think it would cost more.
