KEARNEY, Neb. – Flex fuel vehicle drivers can take advantage of huge savings with E85 for just 85 cents at Pump & Pantry (4311 N 2nd Ave.) in Kearney from 4-7 p.m. Thursday, July 28. Consumers will be limited to 30 gallons and no containers are allowed.
The fuel promotion is sponsored by Nebraska Ethanol Board, Nebraska Corn Board and Bosselman Enterprises. Sponsors will be on site greeting drivers, pumping fuel and providing giveaways and coupons. The promotion is being held in conjunction with the King of the Corn ethanol drag races at Kearney Raceway Park July 30 and the Buffalo County Fair.
One in seven Nebraskans are driving a flex fuel vehicle, which can run on any blend of American Ethanol up to E85 (85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline). Drivers can check their owner’s manual to see if they’re driving a flex fuel vehicle. The vehicle might also have a flex fuel badge on the trunk or tailgate — or have a yellow gas cap.
With a flex fuel vehicle, drivers can choose any ethanol blend up to E85 including E10, E15, E30 or E85. American Ethanol is a clean-burning, non-toxic, renewable source of octane. Using homegrown ethanol reduces the levels of harmful chemicals in our fuel — and in the air we breathe.
