Thorntons has opened a new station in the Chicago area introducing their own brand of E15: Unleaded15 as well as E85. Sen. Bill Cunningham made an appearance at the Thorntons retail location in Oak Lawn, Illinois to celebrate the newly opened store.

“We congratulate Thorntons on their work to expand consumer choice at the pump to their customers and we are proud to partner with them through the Prime the Pump initiative,” said Emily Skor, Growth Energy CEO. We are equally thankful to Sen. Cunningham for taking the time to highlight the importance of renewable fuels and for his work to help Illinois consumers get access to E15.”

Skor continued, “Ethanol is an American success story that’s giving consumers a choice at the pump for a cleaner, higher-octane, less expensive and homegrown fuel. We commend Thorntons for bringing more fuel options such as E15 and E85 to consumers who are demanding higher performing, lower cost fueling options.”
