Sioux Falls, SD, 2016-Sep-28 — /EPR Retail News/ — Kum & Go will offer E-15 fuel for $1.15 per gallon at four Sioux Falls-area Kum & Go locations from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, September 28, including the following locations:
- Store 620 – 412 N Sycamore Ave
- Store 625 – 7100 W 41st St
- Store 631 – 1400 N Cliff Ave
- Store 633 – 1400 N Minnesota Ave
Additionally, there will be a press conference Wednesday morning at 10:00 a.m. at Kum & Go Store 633 located at 1400 N. Minnesota Avenue featuring Sioux Falls Mayor Mike Huether, POET CEO Jeff Broin and Kum & Go Fuels Vice President Jim Pirolli.
E-15, a fuel blended with 15 percent ethanol and 85 percent gasoline, was recently added to many of these locations as one more choice for customers at the pump.
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.
