First E15 station opens in Minneapolis


MINNEAPOLIS -- A new Minneapolis gasoline station offers the state’s first chance to buy fuel with 15 percent corn-based ethanol.

The federal government has allowed the use of such fuels in model year 2001 and newer vehicles. Pumps at Penn Minnoco, 6001 Penn Ave S., also allow owners of flex fuel vehicles to use a blend with 30 percent ethanol.

Flex fuel vehicles also may use E85, which has up to 85 percent ethanol and is available at pumps across Minnesota.
