How Do You Find E85 Fuel Locations?


Quick Answer

Find E85 fuel locations through websites or apps such as EthanolRetailer.com, the Alternative Fuels Data Center from the U.S. Department of Energy and the Renewable Fuels Association app called the Flex-Fuel Station Locator. All of these resources let you locate E85, or "flex fuel," stations with a map function. You may also input a city or an address to find the nearest establishments that carry this type of automobile fuel, as of 2015.

EthanolRetailer.com contains a map in the middle of its Flex Fuel Station Finder. Click on the "+" icon in the lower-right corner to zoom into a particular area. Click and drag the map to move it in any direction. Otherwise, choose a state from a drop-down menu to look at every location in one state on the map. Just above the state finder, input a ZIP code or city/state combination, along with a search radius of 25 to 200 miles, and then select the Search button.

On the Alternative Fuels Data Center website, find E85 stations in a similar manner. Make sure to select the E85 option from the drop-down menu, or this resource may point you to other types of alternative fuels. Both websites show you stations along a predetermined route thanks to a special mapping function.

The app from the Renewable Fuels Association starts with the Stations icon before asking you to select the map or search by city function. This app works for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.
