The Renewable Fuels Association has announced a new app for the iPhone, the E85 Fuel Finder. The app will allow iPhone and iPad users to find E85 stations closest to them wherever they are or wherever they go. The app can even be used if the user isn't in a service zone at the time. App users can add stations to a list of favorites so they can access, view or update the price per gallon easily, get driving directions through Google maps and directly contact a specific station by phone. RFA has also developed an E85 Point of Interest app for Garmin and TomTom GPS devices.
RFA Director of Market Development Robert White says ethanol fuels are readily available at the fingertips of America's consumers with the two apps. He says improving the access of availability of E85 is an important step in educating and increasing awareness to drivers of the alternative fuel options they have available to them.
RFA is sponsoring a free download of the app for the first 500 users. The app normally costs $1.99 and can be downloaded at the App Store. RFA would like to remind everyone that only flex-fuel vehicles can run on E85. They suggest double checking owner's manuals before using E85.
