When Decorah residents fuel up at the local Decorah Mart, they now have the opportunity to choose high-performance, earth friendly E15 and E85.
"E15 and E85 are growing in popularity in Iowa and we want our customers to have these high- quality fuel choices," said Craig Patel, manager of Decorah Mart. "We're providing our customers with more value by selling E15 for 10 cents under E10 and they say they still enjoy the same fuel economy. And we want to be a leader in the community by offering earth-friendly ethanol blends that contribute to the local economy."
Decorah Mart, located at 303 College Drive, is the first gas station in Decorah to offer E15 and E85.
"We are thrilled for Decorah to have its first-ever E15 and E85 refueling site," said Iowa Renewable Fuels Association Executive Director Monte Shaw. "Higher-blends like E15 and E85 burn cleaner while boosting octane. We are confident Decorah residents are going to love these smarter fuels."
Decorah Mart received a cost-share grant from the Iowa Renewable Fuels Infrastructure Program (RFIP) to help upgrade their fueling infrastructure. RFIP grants can cover up to $50,000 in installation costs per project, with a five year commitment to sell E15, E85 or biodiesel blends.
