Minnesota State Agencies Double E-85 Fuel Use in 2007

February 13, 2008

ST. PAUL, MN – Minnesota state agencies more than doubled their use of E-85 last year, purchasing 412,500 gallons of E-85 from retailers, nearly a 250-percent increase over the 165,500 gallons purchased in 2006.

“Filling our tanks with homegrown E-85 decreases our dependence on foreign oil and that leads to a secure energy future,” Governor Tim Pawlenty said. “Our state agencies are leading by example with nearly 1,700 flex-fuel vehicles in the state fleet. And Minnesota is leading the nation with more than 320 E-85 fueling stations across the state.”
