New Blender Pump Opens up in Aurora

Flex fuel vehicles can use regular unleaded, e10, e85 or any combination of ethanol and regular gas, including the e20 and e30 blends that are growing more common at stations that have installed ethanol blender pumps like these.Lincoln, NE-A new blender pump is now open in Aurora at Aurora Cooperative’s Aurora West A-Stop 24.

The grand opening of the blender pump will be held Wednesday, April 11 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. The new blender pump is located at 2530 Harvest Road just west of Aurora. Discounts of $0.85 on E85, $0.30 on E30, and $0.10 on E10 will be given during the grand opening. These discounts are applied to vehicles only. They will not be applied to fuel trailers.

This E85/blender pump is one of approximately 60 in Nebraska to offer a variety of renewable ethanol fuel blends. This station will offer unleaded, E10, E30, and E85. To find a list of retailers that offer E85 and other mid-level ethanol blends, visit the Nebraska Ethanol Board website at www.ne-ethanol.org or check the Nebraska Corn Board website at www.nebraskacorn.org.

Over 117,000 Nebraska motorists currently own a flexible fuel vehicle which can run on any blend of ethanol and gasoline, up to E85. To confirm if a vehicle is flex fuel, drivers can check their owner’s manual, their gas cap, look for the flex fuel emblem on their vehicle or visit the website www.ne-ethanol.org/e85.

“Gas prices keep increasing. With ethanol being about a $1.00 per gallon cheaper than gasoline, flex fuel vehicle owners can save even more when fueling up with E85 and other mid-level ethanol blends at blender pumps,” said Kim Clark, Ag Program Manager with the Nebraska Corn Board.

“Consumer choice and ethanol fuel availability are a high priority with today’s gas prices,” said Todd Sneller, Nebraska Ethanol Board’s Administrator. “When flex fuel drivers fill up on E85, they’re strengthening Nebraska’s economy, making our country more energy independent and going easier on the environment,” Sneller said.
