Marine Corps to Open First Station for Ethanol Blended Fuel

Submitted by on November 22, 2010 – 4:21 pmNo Comment

(Star Advertiser)  The Marine Corps said it will host a ribbon cutting tomorrow for the first “E85″ fueling station in Hawaii that utilizes a blend of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline.

“As always, we are excited to lead the way in conservation,” said Col. Robert Rice, commanding officer of Marine Corps Base Hawaii. “The use of E85 alternative fuel along with 70 fuel-flex vehicles, three hybrids and 20 electric carts will drive (the base’s) carbon footprint lower and decrease our reliance on imported oil.” 

…The Marines said while E85 has been available since the early 1990s, this is the first time the fuel is available on a commercial scale in Hawaii.
