Convenience store chain Kum & Go has again expanded availability of gasoline with 15 percent ethanol, the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association says.

West Des Moines-based Kum & Go has added two more Iowa stations offering E15, one in Des Moines and one in Ankeny, the association said. The additions follow an April announcement that E15 will be offered at 65 Kum & Go stations in seven states. E15 is approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for use in all 2001 and newer passenger vehicles, the association said.

Kum & Go is one of the largest convenience chains operating in Nebraska, with about 50 stores in the western part of the state.

Iowa is the largest ethanol producer, followed by Nebraska.
