To fix the state budget, start here

Wisconsin gas stations are eligible for up to $5,000 in grants to help with installation of equipment to dispense E85 ethanol fuel blends.

The funds are being made available through the state Office of Energy Independence. Retailers may apply for up to three sites, and the funds will provide 50% of the cost of E85 equipment installation.

E85 is a blend of 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline.

"These grants will go a long way towards helping increase the availability of this renewable fuel in the state," said Josh Morby, executive director of the Wisconsin Bio Industry Alliance.

Arrrrrrrrrggggghhhhhhhh .............. another handout to big ethanol, straight from the budget that Jim Doyle cannot balance. Keep me away from my pitchfork.
