Minneapolis, May 4 - For the second straight week, the Minnesota Bio-Fuels Association (MN Bio-Fuels) and KS95 FM teamed up at a station in the Twin Cities metro area to promote E15.
Today’s joint-promotion was held at a Holiday station in White Bear Lake from 12 pm to 1 pm.
Drivers who fueled up with E15 during the promotion were rewarded with prizes such as $20 in cash, tickets to Minnesota United, tickets to the St Paul Saints, Applebee’s gift cards and KS95 merchandise.
“Today in White Bear Lake, consumers who purchased E15 benefited not only from prizes, gift cards, and KS95 merchandise, but also from lower prices at the pump because E15 saves drivers more than 25 cents per gallon on average. And thanks to swift action by the EPA last week, E15 will be saving consumers money and improving Minnesota’s environment all summer long,” said Brian Werner, executive director at MN Bio-Fuels.
Last week, the EPA issued a national emergency waiver to allow E15 to be sold from June 1 to Sept 15 this year.
As a result of the waiver, MN Bio-Fuels will host several more joint promotions with KS95 at stations in the Twin Cities metro over the next several months to educate consumers on the benefits of fueling up with E15.
Today’s promotion was held at a Holiday station in White Bear Lake located at 4540 Centerville Road. Last week, MN Bio-Fuels and KS95 promoted E15 at a Winner station in Golden Valley.
