Other Mobile

If you have internet on your phone, simply open your mobile browser and go to www.afdc.energy.gov/locator/stations. There you will select your alternative fuel and enter your location. It will give you the local stations, help you with directions, provide you with hours of operation, and also provide you a simple click to call the station. If you have a BlackBerry, you can even download an application that will take you right to this spot with one simple click.

 

TomTom

The station location information for TomTom is only available as a national database, and will include all E85 stations from across the country. Your GPS device will sort the closest stations to your location or your chosen destination as a Point of Interest (POI). Click here and follow the simple instructions.

 

 

Garmin

The Garmin information is different, you do have choices. You can choose from a national database that will include all E85 stations in the country, or simply choose which states you would like to have available.

You will need to visit this website, www.ChooseEthanol.com to find the appropriate links to upload to your computer. From there, you will find simple instructions on how to add E85 stations to your Garmin.

PLEASE NOTE: some Garmin devices may not be able to accept the number of POIs found in the “National E85 Station” file. If you have problems, it is recommended that you choose the states that you will ultimately need for this trip.
