The Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) has announced the opening of the first E85 station in Coolidge, Ariz.

“This is an exciting day for the consumers of Pinal County,” said Robert White, director of Market Development for the Renewable Fuels Association. “Consumers now have a choice to use an American fuel that was made just down the road at Pinal Energy.”

"Bringing a clean fuel alternative like E85 to the Pinal County consumer, being a good community partner and being a part of building a better tomorrow was important to Coolidge Chevron,” said Mike Mennenga, owner of the Coolidge Chevron. “The timing makes sense given current gasoline prices and the renewed focus on preserving our environment."

E85 is a blend of 85 percent ethanol, 15 percent gasoline, designed for flex-fuel vehicles only. To determine if your vehicle can use E85, visit chooseethanol.com.
