GM has been spending up big to promote the benefits of E85 and to convince customers the ethanol blend is the solution to ending the world’s dependence on fossil fuels. The carmaker has already announced plans for an E85 Corvette race car and hosted several events where it sold E85 fuel for just 85c per gallon, and now it’s announced plans to launch the first-ever E85 Hummer as well as a commitment to offer biofuel capability on all Hummer vehicles by 2010.

Hummer’s first E85 models will be the 2009 H2 SUV and pickup, a GM spokesman revealed on Friday at the opening of an E85 dealer-operated ethanol station in Dallas. Officials also confirmed plans to offer more than 15 FlexFuel models for the 2009 model year and fleet-wide biofuel capability for Hummer by 2010, reports Automotive News.

Currently, less than one percent of filling stations in the U.S. offer E85 and to ensure the commercial viability of the alternative fuel GM will add even more biofuel stations and possibly hydrogen stations as well.

"There's no telling where this might lead," said Larry Burns, GM vice president of R&D. "Down the road we may even want to consider hydrogen dispensers at dealerships."
