A Less-Polluting Alternative to Gasoline

As oil and gasoline prices reach ever higher levels, the price of fuel at one North Dakota service station is going down -- at least for a couple of hours. On Friday, May 23, the Petro Serve USA station at 3902 Main Street in Fargo will lower the price of E85 by 85¢ per gallon from 3 - 5 p.m. The promotion is sponsored by the American Lung Association of North Dakota, which promotes the cleaner-burning fuel as a less-polluting alternative to gasoline.

E85 is a fuel consisting of up to 85 percent ethanol and just 15 percent gasoline. E85 can be used interchangeably with gasoline in "flex-fuel" vehicles. Today, more than 6 million E85-capable flex-fuel vehicles are already on U.S. roadways. To see if your vehicle is flex-fuel, and a list of all stations in the region that sell E85, go to: http://www.cleanairchoice.org/.

"Flex-fuel vehicle owners using E85 instead of gasoline can significantly reduce ozone-causing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions," said Valerie Kummer, coordinator for the American Lung Association of North Dakota's Clean Fuel and Vehicle Technologies program. "Our annual 'State of the Air Report' named Fargo as the cleanest air city in America. We need clean air choices like E85 and biodiesel to keep our air as clean as it is today."
