Select Nebraska stores offered E15 for $1.15 per gallon during a one day promotion.
From 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Fri., Sept. 23, Kum & Go offered E15 fuel for just $1.15 per gallon at several Nebraska and Iowa Kum & Go locations.
E-15, a fuel blended with 15% ethanol and 85% gasoline, was recently added to many of these locations as one more choice for customers at the pump.
Most gasoline sold in the U.S. contains at least 10% 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,” said 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 E15.”
E15 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 E15 a great value.
“People are often hesitant when it comes to trying something different in their car,” continued Pirolli. “But once they try a new fuel like E15 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 E15 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 E15 at their stores by always offering it via a distinct blue hose and handle.
