Want to win a $100 fuel gift card? All you have to do is take a picture of yourself filling up with E15 and get your friends to vote for your smiling face.
The contest is being sponsored by the Minnesota Bio-Fuels Association. Complete details and more information can be found on the contest’s Facebook page.
You’ll definitely be smiling after filling up with E15 — a blend of 15 percent ethanol and 85 percent regular gasoline. E15 is typically priced 10-20 cents less per gallon than regular unleaded. E15’s higher ethanol content (regular unleaded is blended with 10 percent ethanol) means that it burns cleaner than gasoline and helps clean our air.
By filling up with E15, you’re also supporting a homegrown fuel produced by corn farmers and businesses right here in Minnesota.
You can use E15 in all vehicles model year 2001 and newer. Finding E15 in Minnesota has also become easier in the last year.
The Minnesota Corn Growers Association was part of a broad coalition that helped bring E15 to our state last fall. In addition to the stations currently dispensing E15, 18 more Twin Cities Minnoco stations are set to begin offering the cleaner-burning fuel soon.
