The Iowa Corn Growers Association and Iowa Corn Promotion Board teamed up with Kum & Go this summer to offer savings for drivers to fill their Flex Fuel Vehicle (FFV) with E85.
E85 is a fuel blend with 85 percent ethanol. Iowa proudly leads the nation in ethanol production, creating nearly 30 percent. Across Iowa, ethanol is readily available with nearly 200 E85 pumps as well as other blends of ethanol. Kum & Go is a leader in providing renewable fuels to customers with over 50 pumps in Iowa.
Drivers that fueled up this summer were excited to see that E85 was $.85 when they pulled into the Kum & Go stations. Most drivers mentioned that they had never seen prices this low in their lifetime. Drivers were also excited to share pictures on their social media networks that their gallons were more than the price.
These pump promotions provide Iowa Corn the opportunity to educate consumers on the benefits of E85. The upcoming pump promotions are located at www.iowacorn.org/pumppromotions.
