BROKEN BOW — Two new gas pumps in Broken Bow and Aurora will make it easier for Nebraska drivers to find fuels with more than 10 percent ethanol.

The Nebraska Ethanol Board says the new pumps will offer several fuel blends up to E85, which is 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gas.

Drivers need to have a flex fuel vehicle to use E85.

Nebraska now has about 60 of these so-called blender pumps that allow gas station owners to choose what blend of fuel to sell.

One of the new pumps is at the Aurora Cooperative’s West A-Stop 24. The other is at Trotter Whoa and Go in Broken Bow.
