handful of E85 refueling locations currently available in Michigan are soon to get some significant competition. The Detroit Free Press
Meijer, a Midwest grocery chain, will be offering E85 at about 20 of their stores by the end of 2006. Meijer is working
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.
