The Salmon Oil Company is the first station in rural Idaho to add an E85 fuel pump. E85 is 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline. Only “flex fuel” vehicles can use E85. Owners of “flex fuel” vehicles can choose either gasoline or E85. Check inside your fuel cap or your owner’s manual to see if the vehicle you are driving is a flex fuel vehicle.

The E85 pump was funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Salmon businessman, Calvin Leman. E85 is also available to the public in Boise, Nampa, Idaho Falls, Twin Falls, and Lewiston. The city of Salmon is the only small town in Idaho where E85 is available (Salmon Oil Company, 500 Challis Avenue). Calvin utilizes the FFI Platinum series 4 E85 upgrade system in his Toyota. …more info
