Kum & Go, with the help of Iowa Governor Chet Culver, a longtime advocate of cleaner-burning biofuels, kicked off a special promotion yesterday by offering E85 fuel for
only $1.85 a gallon at its store at 715 Lang Creek in Grinnell.
The event also celebrated the opening of Iowa’s newest E85 outlet. During the one-day event, owners of flex fuel vehicles (FFV) were able to purchase up to 30 gallons per flex fuel vehicle.
The event was promoted by the Iowa Clean Air Choice Team, a coalition of organizations that support the use of cleaner-burning E85 in Iowa. The group recently opened another E85 pump in Lamoni, an Iowa town near the Missouri border.
