Lynn Ketelsen of the Linder Farm Network recently visited the Minnoco station in Shakopee and the Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA) office to learn more about the rapidly increasing popularity of E15 in Minnesota.
E15 is a blend of 15 percent homegrown ethanol and 85 percent gasoline. MCGA was part of a broad coalition that helped bring E15 to Minnesota in the fall of 2013. Today, 18 stations in Minnesota dispense E15. Several more set to come online this summer.
Joel Hennen, the owner of the Minnoco station featured in the video, also wrote a column in Chicago Sun Times about the benefits of E15. You can read it here.
