Safer For Your Family

The atmosphere isn’t the only thing to consider when choosing the fuel that’s right for your family. Unlike gasoline, ethanol does not release deadly toxins into our air.

 

Gasoline contains a lethal combination of cancer-causing toxins known as BTX — short for benzene, toluene and xylene. These carcinogens are added to gasoline to enhance octane — at the expense of human safety.

 

Ethanol is a natural (and safe) octane booster. The more ethanol blended into traditional gasoline, the higher the octane.

But what is Octane?

Simply put, “octane” is a measurement that describes how much compression fuel can withstand inside your engine before it ignites (or even explodes, potentially damaging your vehicle). The higher the number is you see on the pump, the more pressure that fuel can handle.
