Availability and Cost

Ten percent ethanol-blended gasoline is available at many service stations across Canada. It may be used in any gasoline vehicle manufactured since the 1980's, and you fill up your vehicle the same way you would with gasoline.

Eighty-five percent ethanol-blended gasoline is used by some organizations that have large vehicle fleets, but it is not yet commercially available in Canada.
