Better for the Economy

In 2011, the production of nearly 14 billion gallons of ethanol helped support more than 401,000 jobs in all sectors of the economy.

The average ethanol facility employs approximately 50 individuals, including chemists, engineers and accountants.

Ethanol production has continued to expand geographically, with 209 ethanol bio refineries now operating in 29 states, bringing economic opportunity to tens of thousands of Americans, many of whom live in rural areas.

Better for Your Wallet

Ethanol consistently provides higher octane at a lower price—saving consumers hundreds to thousands of dollars at the pump every year.

On average gasoline blended with 10% ethanol is $0.40/gallon less expensive than gasoline with no ethanol.

Flex Fuel Vehicle (FFV) owners can take full advantage of the benefits of ethanol by fueling with e85/Flex Fuel, a gasoline blend containing between 51-83%  ethanol. FFV owners can also fuel up with other common ethanol blends, like Unleaded88/e15 and e30.

Better Cleaner Now

Biodiesel is a cleaner-burning alternative fuel, produced from domestic, renewable resources such as distillers corn oil. Biodiesel contains no petroleum, but can be blended at any level with petroleum diesel to create a clean-burning biodiesel blend, like B20. Biodiesel can also be used in its pure form.
