Calstart The U.S. Department of Energy has provided a major grant to build 15 public E85 stations in California.

According to a news release, the effort will include the collaboration of some major environmental and corporate partners, including CALSTART, General Motors, Pacific Ethanol, and CleanFUEL USA.

Currently, there is currently only one public station that sells E85 ethanol in California, despite the fact the state has more than 300,000 flex-fuel cars capable of running on the fuel.

CALSTART is a non-profit corporation that works with its 130 participating organizations to accelerate the commercialization of clean and energy efficient transportation technologies.
