A new ethanol blender pump is now available in the York area at Aurora Cooperative, 1320 L Road.
The York E85/blender pump is the 61st in Nebraska to offer the renewable fuel. The location will have regular gasoline, ethanol fuels and diesel available 24 hours a day.
More than 96,000 Nebraska motorists currently own Flexible Fuel Vehicles, which can run on any blend of ethanol and gasoline, including E85. Drivers can confirm if their car is a FFV by checking their owner's manual or visiting the Nebraska Ethanol Board website at www.ne-ethanol.org/e85.
"E85 is cleaner than gas, it's produced here in Nebraska and more and more cars can use it every year," says Todd Sneller, Nebraska Ethanol Board administrator. "When FFV drivers fill up on E85, they're strengthening Nebraska's economy, making our country more energy independent and going easier on the environment."
"The addition of this new flex fuel dispenser in York will ensure that consumers will have more choices at the pump to fuel up their flex fuel vehicle," says Kim Clark, ag program manager with the Nebraska Corn Board. Consumers will be able to fill up based on price, performance and availability."
