Ethanol is produced from wheat and/or corn and added to gasoline as a renewable, clean-burning fuel that contains oxygen. Adding oxygen to fuel results in more complete fuel combustion, which can reduce harmful tailpipe emissions. Gasoline containing up to 10% ethanol by volume is the most common form of ethanol-blended fuel and is covered by warranty by every automobile manufacturer.
Husky sells fuel through its retail outlets, travel centres and bulk distributors, located from Vancouver Island through Ontario. Ethanol blends are available at most stations.
All grades of Husky gasoline and ethanol-blended gasoline contain a deposit-control additive package formulated to meet the requirements set out by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
