KSTP reported Monday about a new kind of gasoline coming to the Twin Cities.

E-15 made its official debut in Minnesota on Wednesday. It's the same quality but cheaper than regular unleaded gasoline.

On Wednesday the "Minnesota Corn Growers Association" officially welcomed drivers to fill up.

If your car is a 2001 or newer vehicle, then you can use the fuel.

Older cars, light duty trucks, motorcycles, lawn mowers, snow blowers and chainsaws can not use the fuel.

E-15 contains 85 percent gas and 15 percent ethanol.

If you're not sure about putting the fuel into your car, AAA says to look at your owner's manual.
