Kwik Trip announced the addition of E15—a biofuel with 15% ethanol—to its fuel offering. The chain has offered E85 for years. Now, Kwik Trip has begun its roll out of E15 in locations across the Midwest, with plans to ultimately expand E15 to most of its more than 500 locations.
“At Kwik Trip, we pride ourselves on offering consumers a first-class experience at our convenience stores. Part of the value we can provide consumers is through offering them an array of choices at the pump. Adding E15 was an important step for us. It’s a clean-burning, high-performing fuel that also delivers savings when drivers pull up to the pump. Providing the best options for consumers is certainly important to us, and E15 fits in very nicely with that goal,” said Joel Hirschboeck, Kwik Trip General Manager of Fuel Procurement and Marketing, in a press release.
E15 is approved for any car 2001 and newer, which accounts for 9 out of 10 cars on the road today. Other convenience stores that offer E15 include Casey’s, Family Express, Kum & Go, MAPCO, Minnoco, Murphy USA, Protec Fuels, QuikTrip, RaceTrac, Sheetz and Thorntons.
