Fuel Your Vehicle with Ethanol

Ethanol Reduces Greenhouse Gas Emissions.

Ethanol is a renewable fuel made from plants we grow right here in America, and contains 35 percent oxygen. Because ethanol contains oxygen and helps fuel combust more completely, the use of ethanol in automotive fuel:

  • Reduces tailpipe carbon monoxide emissions by as much as 30 percent.
  • Reduces exhaust VOC emissions by 12 percent.
  • Reduces particulate emissions, especially fine particulates that are especially hazardous to children, seniors and those with respiratory diseases.

Ethanol blended gasoline has helped dozens of American cities comply with federal clean air standards. In fact, the American Lung Association of Metropolitan Chicago credits ethanol-blended gasoline with reducing smog-forming emissions by 25 percent since 1990.
