VeraSun Energy and Enterprise Expand E85 Use

Ethanol producer VeraSun Energy Corporation and Enterprise Rent-A-Car recently announced they will work collaboratively to promote the use of VE85, VeraSun's branded E85, in Enterprise's Flexible Fuel Vehicles (FFV).

The partnership will concentrate Enterprise's FlexFuel Vehicles near strategic VE85 fueling locations.

Enterprise has more than 41,000 cars and trucks capable of using E85 (85% corn-based ethanol and 15% petroleum). Under the agreement, Enterprise will concentrate FFVs at designated VE85/FlexFuel rental branch offices and commit to fuel those vehicles with VE85.

Recently VeraSun and Enterprise, along with General Motors, opened the first retail E85 fueling location in the Washington, D.C., metro area. Enterprise designated its rental location in there as a VE85/FlexFuel Branch.
