To help consumers locate stations offering alternative fuels in Florida, Bronson unveiled a new web site that provides locations statewide where E85, E10, biodiesel and biodiesel-blended fuels can be purchased. The web site is available HERE.
"This tool will enable motorists to locate renewable, cleaner burning fuels around the state," Bronson said in a news release. "I am very pleased that a number of facilities are now making these fuels available to the public, and we expect the number to continue growing."
E85, an alternative fuel comprised of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline, requires a flex-fuel vehicle. E10, gasoline blended with 10 percent ethanol, and biodiesel-blended fuels can be used in virtually any modern gasoline or diesel engine.
The Web site is the latest effort in Bronson's "Farm to Fuel Initiative," which is designed to ease both Florida and the nation's dependency on foreign oil and promote cleaner, renewable fuels by having Florida farmers grow fuel crops to support this production.
"Florida is well positioned to be a leader in this effort because of our available farmland and our mild climate," Bronson said. "The goal is to reduce the country's dependency on foreign oil, and at the same time to provide alternative crops that our farmers can grow to keep our agriculture industry viable."
