Gasoline distribution company Magellan Midstream Partners L.P. is apologizing for mistakenly providing gas stations in eastern Iowa with a blend containing a small amount of ethanol.

Magellan said Monday that gasoline containing an average ethanol content of 1 percent was delivered to stations in Iowa City and surrounding areas between Jan. 12 and Jan. 15.

The product was intended to be sold as gasoline without ethanol. Magellan says it is investigating, but initial indications show a mechanical failure at its Iowa City distribution terminal was to blame.

The company says it promptly contacted customers and regulators and replaced the faulty product.

A Magellan representative says it is apologizing to customers but does not expect any drivability-related claims from motorists, given that gasoline containing 10 percent ethanol is common in Iowa.
