88 Octane Gasoline

88 Octane gasoline is a newer gasoline blend being offered across Minnesota and other states. It consists of 85% gasoline and 15% ethanol, so it is sometimes called E15. The little boost in ethanol leads to a higher octane rating than regular unleaded, while typically reducing the price. All regular unleaded sold in Minnesota already includes a 10 percent ethanol blend.

E15 has been approved for use in all model year 2001 and newer cars, light-duty trucks, medium-duty passenger vehicles (SUVs), and all flex fuel vehicles (of any age) by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. E15 should not be used in other vehicles, boats or gasoline-powered equipment.
