Isobutanol (Ethanol-Free Gasoline)
Renewable Oxygenate Alternative To Ethanol
Isobutanol = More Power = More MPG
Our company has a strong national market reach in Houston and adjacent areas in the fuel distribution arena and is well positioned to grow the market and deliver a bigger network of distribution and retail outlets as demand for these ethanol-free gasoline products develop.
Musket has exclusive distribution rights of Isobutanol within a 500 mile radius of Houston, which is a market region that includes Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Oklahoma, Louisiana, as well as the majority of South and East Texas. We have also partnered with a number of ethanol-free gas retailers to serve a wide area of customers in search for true ethanol-free gasoline. Gasoline made with isobutanol is another offering we can provide to the marketplace to meet demand in reformulated gasoline (RFG) markets, which are classified under EPA guidelines. Gasoline blended with 12.5% isobutanol meets EPA criteria for reformulated gasoline (RFG) markets.
Musket began distribution of isobutanol gasoline blends in the Houston area in late 2016. Our ability to source, transport and blend fuels has led to rapid growth in and around Houston, which is a RFG market. Nearly all RFG gasoline is formulated with ethanol as the oxygenate. Isobutanol is an alternative renewable oxygenate to Ethanol and enables an ethanol-free blended gasoline in RFG areas that meet all the EPA guidelines.
Isobutanol-blended gasoline is the preferred choice for customers seeking ethanol-free solutions within RFG areas. Isobutanol gasolines contain only 2.7% oxygen by weight, so they can deliver more energy per gallon. The blend is especially suited for marine applications where ethanol-related corrosion is a major issue.
