Total has stepped up the deployment of E85 fuel within its service station network in France to meet the growing demand.
E85 refers to an ethanol fuel blend of 85% ethanol fuel and 15% gasoline or other hydrocarbon by volume.
Total said it has already doubled its distribution capacity from 270 service stations to more than 500.
At the turn of the year there were more than 750 service stations in the Total network offering E85 - making it the largest distributor of the fuel in France. This development will continue in 2021, the French energy major said, because E85 benefitted from having an attractive price and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
“Bringing energy that is ever more affordable and more environmentally friendly to our customers is at the heart of our business,” said Guillaume Larroque, president of Total marketing France.
“Total, therefore, wanted to accelerate the development of E85 and will continue this effort in 2021, in order to provide as many people as possible access to this low-carbon fuel at an attractive price.
“With our 750 Total stations now offering E85, spread across the whole of France, we are supporting the energy transition of our motorist customers.”
