While Iowa leads the nation in making ethanol fuel, the American Lung Association of the Upper Midwest says we don’t have enough pumps where drivers can buy it. Spokesman Robert Moffit says they’re working to change that.
The Association is working with a broad coalition of farm and environmental groups as well as state governments to get grants and to open new E-85 pumps around the state. The high-ethanol fuel can be used in more cars designed as "flexible-fuel" and would go farther toward clearing the air, according to the Lung Association spokesman.
On May 10 representatives will go to salute the opening of a new E-85 pump in Lamoni. Moffitt says if you don’t know whether your car ban burn E-85, you can look it up on the list at the "Clean Air Choice" website .
