A good story folks, and actually one of the most technically accurate yet. Finally a true statement about energy yield.

Hey aRBy, I think your state has made huge ground on properly pricing E-85. Speedways (and others) are really taking advantage of some great E-85 sales and it's moving :)

I know of that Lake Odessa distillery. Michigan has a LOT of E85 pumps. The State of Michigan's vehicle fleet has a lot of flex fuel vehicles. I'm not certain whether this is a requirement, but it wouldn't surprise me.

One of the great things I like about using E85 is that it supports our local economy. Even if it's not 15% less than 87 Octane (E10), I tend to use it knowing that my fuel dollars support local jobs.

Also... Julliet Dragos is a doll!
