Oklahoma Opens First Ethanol Fueling Station

August 03, 2003

The Association of Central Oklahoma Governments (ACOG) announced on July 15 the opening of the first E85 (85% ethanol and 15% gasoline) station in the state. Located in Oklahoma City, it will provide fuel to flexible-fuel vehicles that can operate on gasoline, E85, or a combination of the two fuels. Currently there are more than 3 million such vehicles on the road in the United States. ACOG is a partner in DOE's Clean Cities, which promotes the use of alternative fuel vehicles in central Oklahoma. For more coverage on the event, see the July 2003 issue of Alternative Fuel News.
