Wayne Fueling Systems announced today that all Wayne North American retail fuel dispensers will be supplied as compatible and UL-Listed to E25 (25 percent ethanol and 75 percent petroleum) as a standard feature. The shift from the standard Underwriters Laboratory Listing of E10 to E25 is effective immediately for Wayne Ovation fuel dispensers and by year-end for the Wayne Helix family of dispensers.
“We are pleased to be the first manufacturer to offer E25-Listed dispensers as standard to our North American dispenser product offering, reflecting the growing interest from our customers to prepare for any and all necessary changes to the fueling infrastructure in the future,” said Wayne VP of Products and Services, Tom Cerovski. At this time, 90 percent of dispensers in the industry are only certified to dispense E10 fuel.
Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) President and CEO Bob Dinneen applauded Wayne’s leadership to help retailers and the ethanol industry meet the increasing demand for higher biofuel blends across the nation. “As the demand grows for high octane, low carbon, low cost ethanol, due to compliance with the renewable fuel standard and with more stringent national fuel economy standards, it is important fuel dispensing equipment keeps up with the changes. We are proud that Wayne Fueling System is leading the charge,” said Dinneen.
With the potential shift to higher ethanol blends necessary to meet future fuel requirements brought about by more stringent CAFE standards and GHG reductions by 2025, this move is an expression of Wayne’s continued intent of supplying its customers with the most flexible, reliable and future-proof equipment options.
