Just this week, Illinois’ newest E85 pump is opening up at Hy-Vee Gas in Galesburg. Where is the nearest E85 or other higher ethanol blend near you? What’s the price at the pump? We hope you’ll answer those questions by participating with IL Corn at the website. Users of have the ability to win free E85.

We’re working with the Renewable Fuels Association on this website in order to bring more awareness of E85 to consumers and also more transparency to the market on pricing.

To give you even more reasons to participate, we will draw one random user from those who have submitted E85 price experiences during the past month and reward them with a $100 E85 fuel card. The more users submit prices, the better chance they have of winning.

RFA purchased in February 2015 and has since released a new version of the website and the associated mobile app. Users can submit prices for all blends of ethanol like E15 and E30, but must always submit prices for E85 and regular unleaded. Existing users do not need to do anything new in order to qualify.

Non-users need to register here and submit your pricing experiences. The app is available for Android and Apple devices.

The winner for December 2015 is from South Dakota with the username “ethanolkicksgas”.
