ALTOONA, Pa.—Sheetz announced a price reduction of E85 to $1.85 a gallon through April 30. E85 is offered at more than 375 Sheetz stores locations throughout Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Ohio and North Carolina. This reduction will be available at all Sheetz locations that sell E85.

E85 is approved for use only in flexible fuel vehicles designed to run on gasoline or gasoline-ethanol blends of up to 85% ethanol. This grade contains more ethanol (51%-83%) and is a cleaner burning fuel than other fuel grades. Because of its high octane and clean burning, the summer blend of E85 is a popular low-cost alternative to racing fuel for many sports vehicles with compatible engines.

In March, for one week Sheetz reduced the price of its premium, mid-grade and ethanol free fuel grades to match the regular 87 prices. In January, it reduced the price of diesel by 50 cents for two weeks. It has also regularly been offering discounts on DEF.

Sales of E85 skyrocketed in California in 2022, surging 66% over 2021 and more than doubling the pre-pandemic record set in 2019, according to the California Air Resources Board. California drivers purchased over 103.5 million gallons of E85 flex fuel in 2022.
