The handful of E85 refueling locations currently available in Michigan are soon to get some significant competition. The
Detroit Free Press
reports Meijer, a Midwest grocery chain, will be offering E85 at about 20 of their stores by the end of 2006. Meijer is working with
and CleanFuel USA, an E85 fueling equipment manufacturer, to identify which stores will sell E85. There are currently only five stations in Michigan selling E85. The state of Michigan is one of the nation’s leading producers of corn, but currently only has one ethanol plant producing 45 million gallons a year. Four additional plants are due within two years.
