Kum & Go announces E-15 fuel for $1.15 per gallon at Cedar Rapids and Iowa City-area locations on Friday, September 30

Iowa City, IA and Cedar Rapids, IA, 2016-Sep-30 — /EPR Retail News/ — Kum & Go will offer E-15 fuel for $1.15 per gallon at several Cedar Rapids and Iowa City-area Kum & Go locations from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, September 30. 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.

E-15 fuel will be sold for $1.15 per gallon from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, September 30, at the following locations:

Cedar Rapids
Store 508 – 30 Four Oaks Drive SW
Store 514 – 1420 Mt. Vernon Rd. SE
Store 517 – 3132 1st Ave NE
Store 520 – 2604 16th Ave

Coralville
Store 201 – 822 1st Ave
Store 521 – 205 2nd Street

Marion
Store 503 – 3215 7th Ave
Store 509 – 1203 Blairs Ferry Road

North Liberty
Store 507 – 610 N Kansas Ave

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.
