Flex Fuel Finder
"In only eight short months, our fuel sales have almost doubled and out of all the gas sales our E15 has outgrown unleaded sales by 60-65%. Much of the credit can be given to the special $0.15 off coupons E15, E 30, E85 to get customers to try the new fuels. It showed them they could save money and get the same mileage on E15 or E30. We feel this has directly driven our sales along with a lot of customer education, one-on-one explanations of what Ethanol and bio-fuels are all about including the impact to our environment and the health and welfare of the community."

White Paper: Ethanol and the Fuel Retail Industry


Mid-level blends give a boost to store profitability

In February of 2012, Growth Energy commissioned a study with a third party research firm, Irwin Broh Research, to better define the value higher ethanol blends (from E15 up to E85) offer to retailers.

Initial results demonstrate that the vast majority of retailers are able to establish a fuel price advantage in their markets, are likely to see increased fuel sales, are able to simplify inventory, and have seen increased store traffic in large part due to the addition of flex fuel pumps offering higher blends of ethanol fuel. Roughly 81 percent of these retailers state they are satisfied with their decision to install flex fuel pumps.

In addition, findings in this report indicate that if the ethanol retailer is able to advertise the ethanol price advantage, they experience even higher levels of success in selling ethanol blends.
