Default NJ and e85

Is it ever possible that NJ will have a abundant supply of e85?

There is 3 stations in the entire state that carry it. Its a highly populated area and would think that it would have a lot more than it does.

Does anyone have any more insight if and when NJ might get more stations?

I wasn't even aware that there were 3 stations available in NJ as the site I usually use to check says there are no public stations available: http://www.e85locator.net/State%20Pa...locations.html

It would be nice to have some more available so that I could try some E85 tunes though, but honestly not sure what NJ's plans are in regards to wider availability.

Theres a e85 pump in Newark Airport, which is the only pump Ive actually seen.

This site is more accurate though!
http://e85vehicles.com/e85-stations/e85-new-york.html

As far as an abundant supply in NJ, I think that will be a long way. I mean even NYC barely has 1 e85 pump and thats even more populated then in NJ.

I was thinking about going e85 but the lack of places to fill up in our state is keeping me away from going that route, I dont want to order drums of the internet... I didn't know about the Newark Airport pump and since I'm really close to it I may look into going that route again.

I think the ones that show up on there belong to city agency's that use cars with e85 (DOT, DEP and maybe DSNY)

If I can recall correctly akuma motorsports tested the e85 fuel in newark and found out that its actually 70 or 75 percent ethanol and the rest fuel its not pure e85 but correct me if I'm wrong

As of recent, Newark is at ~ 77 ethanol during warmer time of year. Very consistent readings. Winter blend is E70.

Is there a real reason why there aren't any in the 5 boroughs? I'm sure someone asked and tried to petition for it already. There aren't that many active threads on any forum about it. Mostly questions on where to purchase e85. I'm aware that demand is low but for 8.2 million people? I'm sure one station would be enough..

maybe it has to do with environmental concerns in the area. like the station is required to have a separate tank x feet away from any other tanks which make it very difficult to put something together especially in a congested city like NYC. that is the only thing i can think of. CT has a few stations but we need more in NY and NJ

I heard the ones in newark/orange e85 pumps are very inconsistant.All year round not just in the winter.Dying to go e85 and so far the only thing i found with consistancy is vp c85.Sounds like awesome stuff but not 10 bucks a gallon.
