In a bid to provide consumers with more choices, cheaper fuel prices and reduced greenhouse gas emissions, Aldermen Edward M. Burke (14th) and Anthony Beale (9th) today proposed that all Chicago self-serve gas stations must offer mid-grade ethanol fuel at the pump.
Why Chicago E15?
In 2012, ethanol use reduced carbon emissions equal to removing 5.2 million vehicles from the road.
Drivers would save 5 to 15 cents with E15.
Better for engines
Ethanol is a higher-octane fuel that improves engine performance.
