Another record year for E15 sales in Minnesota

2023 was another record year for E15 sales in Minnesota.

Brian Werner with the Minnesota Biofuels Association tells Brownfield data from the Department of Commerce shows the state sold more than 127 million gallons of fuel blended with 15 percent ethanol last year.

“And it was another new record. And actually the most interesting thing to me in the data was now we’ve doubled the amount of sales of E15 from five years ago.”

He suggests biofuels have a lot of momentum.

“It’s great news, and great that as consumers have more access to E15, we’re seeing one out of every five stations in the state offers higher blends, those cost benefits (and) environmental benefits are getting out to more folks.”

Werner says sales of E-85 also hit record levels in 2023 at more than 16 million gallons.
