Des Moines, IA, 2016-Sep-16 — /EPR Retail News/ — To celebrate E-15 Day, Kum & Go will offer E15, a fuel blended with 15 percent ethanol and 85 percent gasoline, for $1.15 per gallon at many Des Moines-area Kum & Go locations from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, September 16. (See below for a complete list of stores and addresses where E-15 is available.)
“The Bachelor” reality-TV star and Iowa farmer Chris Soules will be on hand at Store 129 in Johnston (5225 NW 86th Street) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. talking about the benefits of E-15 with customers.
Iowa Governor Terry E. Branstad will sign the E-15 Day proclamation at 8:15 a.m. on Friday at a ceremony at the Iowa State Capitol.
Most gasoline sold in the United States contains at least 10 percent ethanol. Fifteen percent blends were approved by the Environmental Protection Agency in 2011 for vehicles 2001 or newer, and Kum & Go was among the first to offer the new option.
“Our cars are an important part of our everyday lives. As engine technology has evolved, so have the fuel options,” says Jim Pirolli, Vice President – Fuels, Kum & Go. “Kum & Go is excited to provide this opportunity for consumers to learn more about the options that are available, and save money by trying a new fuel like E-15.”
E-15 has a higher octane content, which means more power. It also burns cooler and cleaner, reducing carbon emissions and engine wear. The combination of performance and lower price make E-15 a great value.
“People are often hesitant when it comes to trying something different in their car,” continues Pirolli. “But once they try a new fuel like E-15 and have good results, they switch permanently. Providing several high quality choices AND helping people make informed decisions at the pump is another way that Kum & Go delivers more than customers expect.”
Kum & Go sells E-15 at 90 locations across their network of stores in Iowa, Nebraska, Arkansas, Colorado, Missouri, Oklahoma, and South Dakota. Kum & Go has made it easy to find E-15 at their stores by always offering it via a distinct blue hose and handle.
