E15 is a high-performance fuel, providing the same drivability with increased engine performance. It’s a 15% blend, made with American ethanol from corn grown in our nation’s heartland.
After months of testing, NASCAR adopted the fuel for use in all of their national racing series in 2011. The race teams and engine builders were heavily involved in the transition process, and have since reported high praise for the fuel which boosts horsepower while reducing emissions.
Why a New Fuel?
