The State fuel island at 301 E. 7th St will be closed effective at noon on October 23, 2018 until further notice. We regret any inconvenience.
We continue to emphasize the use of E85 in flex fuel vehicles, as it has been shown to improve engine performance.
Stations offering both E10 and E85 fuels located near the Capitol Complex are:
- Kum & Go, 2110 Guthrie Avenue (off I-235 at Guthrie Avenue)
- Kum & Go, 1300 Keo Way (off I-235 at Keosauqua Way)
The closest station offering E10 fuel located near the Capitol Complex is:
QuikTrip, 1501 E Grand Avenue (at the intersection of E Grand Avenue and E 15th Street)
For a list of WEX-accepting stations, see the statewide E85 Stations map.
Q: Why does ethanol cost more than unleaded gasoline at some stations?
A: More and more states - especially those on the east and west coasts - are switching from MTBE to ethanol. This "pressure" on the supply is causing ethanol prices to climb, even though the supply is currently meeting the demand. Retailers without contracts in place are subject to these higher prices, which are then passed onto the consumer. To find stations with lower prices, consumers are encouraged to shop around as it is likely that other stations in the community will be selling ethanol at a lower price.
We will continue to keep you informed of news relative to new stations and discounted pricing.
