"We look forward to continuing to work with Growth Energy to maximize our advantage with E15, while providing our customers with greater choice and value at the pump," Hartman added.
Washington, D.C.-based Growth Energy represents producers and supporters of ethanol.
Rutter's joins Casey's General Stores, Family Express, Holiday, Kum & Go, Kwik Trip, MAPCO, Minnoco, Murphy USA, Protec Fuel, QuikTrip, RaceTrac, Sheetz, Cenex and Thorntons in offering E15 at nearly 1,400 gas stations across 30 states.

"We are proud to welcome Rutter's to the ever-growing E15 retailer family and look forward to giving even more American drivers an engine-smart and earth-kind fuel choice with cleaner-burning E15."
