What is E85 Fuel?

A renewable alternative fuel source, E85 is a blend of 15% unleaded gasoline and 85% ethanol. Only FFV can use E85 fuel.

What is Ethanol?

Ethanol is essentially an alcohol made from sugars found in any biological feedstock like corn, wheat or barley. These sugars are extracted and fed to microbes, which then produce ethanol and carbon dioxide. Ethanol is then purified, blended with standard, unleaded gasoline and made ready for you at the GetGo pump.

Environmental Benefits

  • Reduces carbon monoxide and other tailpipe emissions.

Vehicle Benefits

Owners of FFVs have the flexibility to use several fuel types, including E85, conventional gasoline, or any blend of ethanol up to 85%.
