NEVC Efforts

Our only ethanol effort is to advance the use of 85% ethanol as a form of alternative transportation fuel.

National Ethanol Vehicle Coalition (NEVC) engaged in this effort since 1996.

We were doing E85 before

E85 was “cool”.


Who We Represent

  • 36 Governors
  • Big 3 and Nissan
  • National Agricultural Assns.
  • State Agricultural Assn.
  • Petroleum Marketers
  • Ethanol Producers/Marketers
  • Consumer Groups

What We Do

  • Advocate the use of E85 as a form of alternative transportation.
  • Educate consumers, organizations, media as to benefits of E85.
  • Serve as a technical consultant.
  • Promote the use of E85 in the political arena.
  • Provide information regarding tax incentives available to reduce price of E85.

What We DON’T Do

  • Don’t sell Ethanol.
  • Don’t sell E85 (we promote it)
  • Don’t sell equipment such as dispensers, tanks, etc.
  • Don’t work on commission.
  • Don’t represent multi-national agricultural conglomerates.
  • In terms of alternative fuels, E85 doesn’t try to be everything to everybody.

What is a BTU?

British Thermal Unit-standard tool to measure energy content

1-BTU = approx. Energy content of a kitchen match

  • E85 contains 73% of BTUs as
  • unleaded on arithmetic basis
        • E85 = 83,263 BTUs
        • Gasoline = 114,000 BTUs
        • # 2 diesel = 129,000 BTUs

Cost of E85

Yes! A lower energy content results in lower mileage. Gasoline vehicles don’t travel as far as the same diesel powered vehicles.

Hence, gasoline is generally cheaper than diesel.

It follows, that E85 MUST be cheaper than unleaded gasoline.


Mileage of E85 vs. Gasoline

Range of mileage loss has been reported to be 5 to 20%

Mileage loss, depending on the vehicle and the driver, tire inflation, etc. all play major role
