Ethanol is a clean-burning additive made from corn, a renewable resource. It is available in blends ranging from 10 percent to 85 percent. You can safely use E-10 in everything from cars to trucks, lawn mowers to boat motors, motorcycles to snowmobiles.
When North Dakotans use ethanol, everyone wins. It translates into higher prices for our farmers, more good jobs, a robust economy, and a cleaner environment. It's good for our engines, it's good for North Dakota, it's good for America, and it's good for the Earth.
What's happening in North Dakota
North Dakota is a leader in the ethanol arena. Utilizing both federal stimulus and state funds, North Dakota began offering retailers grants of $5,000 per pump in 2009. To date we have funded 175 ethanol blender pumps. These pumps enable retailers to offer mid-grade blends such as E20 and E30, and offer consumers a choice at the pump.
