State boosts use of E85 nearly l O-fold in five years Minnesota state government agen- cies have increased their retail pur- chases of E85 nearly 10-fold in five years, according to the Department of Administration. In the first nine months of 2010, agencies have pur- chased nearly 725,000 gallons of E85, compared to about 73,000 gal- lons over the same period in 2005. "Nearly one of every five gallons of fuel that state agencies buy from retailers today is E85," said Commissioner of Administration Sheila Reger. "That's a remarkable increase from just five years ago that is helping state government reduce its dependence on petroleum fuels." Minnesota Agriculture Commissioner Gene Hugosonsays the report underscores the state's long-term commitment to renewable energy. "Using E85 helps reduce our dependence on foreign oil and boosts economic activity for greater Minnesota," said Hugoson. "It's great to see state employees and other Minnesotans choosing homegrown, renewable fuels." The state is also nearing 1 million gallons in annual E85 use. In 2009, state agencies bought almost 817,000 gallons of E85, compared to 97,000 gallons in 2005. Gasoline purchases have declined nearly 10 percent over that period. State agencies currently operate about 2,500 flex-fuel cars, pickup trucks and vans.
