Flex-fuel vehicle owners in Madison, Alabama now have more choices in filling up with E85, thanks to MAPCO Express and Protec Fuel.

This is the first location for the multi-state MAPCO Express to offer 85 percent ethanol blended fuel. The company partnered with florida-based Protec Fuel to convert the station and equipment and provide the E85 fuel for the company’s new greener-burning fuel option.

“MAPCO has taken a big step in offering E85 to its customers at this Madison location,” said Steve Walk with Protec Fuel. “This launch should lead to more MAPCO biofuel pumps throughout its southeastern U.S. territory.”

According to Mark Bentley, Executive Director of the Alabama Clean Fuels Coalition, there are now 16 E85 pumps in Alabama. “We congratulate and commend MAPCO and the people of Madison for making E85 available to the public,” he said.

Madison, Alabama is north of Birmingham and just east of Decatur and the MAPCO Express E85 pump is located on Highway 72 West.
