(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) - New E30 fuel is now being dispensed at the Fastgas at 4217 Frederick Avenue in St. Joseph.

The E30 fuel is made from corn that is grown in the St. Joseph area.

"It's something that they've wanted to do here to help promote the ethanol industry and AG, corn and all of that stuff," Production Manager at ICM Biofuels, Toby Brown, said. "That is going to keep the local economy going."

ICM Biofuels hosted a grand opening launch at the gas station on Friday.

The E30 fuel is dispensed at the most western pump and features a distinctive yellow nozzle.

The new fuel is said to improve engine performance and offer an environmentally-responsible alternative to gasoline. 

It is recommended that only "flex-fuel" vehicles use the new E30 fuel.

More hot and humid weather on the way for today with highs back in the upper 90s with some areas reaching triple digits. Use caution when spending time outside because heat index values will once again be in the triple digits for many. A cold front will start to approach our area tonight and stall to our north giving us a few chances for showers and thunderstorms overnight, however this activity will not be widespread. Temperatures will still be above average this weekend with highs in the 90s. A few lingering rain chances will continue this weekend, but much of the weekend will be dry. The cold front will move through the area early next week giving us some much cooler temperatures. High will be back down in the upper 70s and lower 80s to start off next week.
