What is ethanol?

Ethanol is an alcohol produced from corn. It is blended with gasoline to produce a mixture containing up to 10 percent ethanol and 90 percent gasoline.

Why is there ethanol in our gasoline?

In 1998, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a ruling that retail stations in designated metropolitan areas must sell reformulated gasoline that would have a lesser negative impact on the environment. Ethanol became the only compound available to use in reducing environmental impact.

What will ethanol do for my vehicle?

All cars built since the 1970s are fully compatible with gasoline blended with up to 10% ethanol. Ethanol burns cooler and cleaner than gasoline, which can extend the life of engine valves and spark plugs, and allows your engine performance levels similar to those of regular gasoline. All ethanol blended gasoline also reduces engine deposits.

Can I use ethanol in my lawnmower or other small engines?

Major manufacturers of lawnmowers, power tools, motorboats, and other products utilizing small engines authorize the use of ethanol blends in their products.

What other benefits does ethanol provide?

Ethanol burns cleaner, emitting less carbon monoxide than regular gasoline. And, since ethanol is made from corn produced in the United States, it reduces the amount of foreign crude oil purchased by the U.S.

What is IQ?

IQ is a blend of detergent additives included in every gallon of every grade of QuikTrip Guaranteed Gasoline.

What does IQ do for my car?

IQ will help clean your engine while you drive. Without an additive like IQ, deposits may form throughout your vital engine parts in the fuel injectors, the intake manifold, the intake ports, and on the intake valves.

What will these deposits do to my engine?

These deposits can cause problems such as lower gas mileage, difficulty in starting, loss of power, and increased exhaust pollutants. They will also cause your engine to idle roughly, hesitate, stall, and surge.

Will IQ keep my engine from forming deposits?

QuikTrip Guaranteed Gasoline with IQ will not only keep these deposits from forming, it will actually reduce deposits that may have already formed.

Do other gasoline retailers have additives in their fuel?

All gasoline retailers have the government required minimum level of additives in their gasoline. However, many retailers only put in the minimum dose of additives. What is also important is the amount of additives the retailer delivers in every grade, not just in the premium grade. QuikTrip, unlike lower quality gasoline, puts the same high level of IQ additive in every grade of gasoline.

Is QuikTrip gasoline a TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline?

Yes. QuikTrip Guaranteed Gasoline with IQ has been recognized and approved by General Motors, Toyota, BMW, Honda, Volkswagen, and Audi as a Top Tier Detergent Gasoline.

Where does QuikTrip get its gasoline?

QuikTrip is an American-owned, privately held company with a 50-year history in the convenience store/gasoline retail industry. The gasoline and diesel fuel we offer to our customers is purchased from various refineries all located in the U.S.

There have recently been a number of questions raised about whether QuikTrip buys gasoline from Middle Eastern or South American countries. We do not purchase any crude oil or have any influence on the purchasing decisions made by the companies who own the refineries.

As an independent marketer, we do not operate any pipelines or terminals; we are strictly a retailer of quality motor fuels and convenience items to consumers in our markets.

All gasoline marketers in the United States get their gasoline from various terminals in their cities. This gasoline has been mixed in pipelines with gasoline from a number of refineries. Although we may purchase our gasoline from a specific refiner, the gasoline we actually pull out of the pipeline is really generic. Even retail outlets of major oil companies end up drawing their gasoline out of the same pipeline as everyone else.
