St Paul, Sept 29 – The Minnesota Bio-Fuels Association (MBA) and KS95 FM today teamed up to reward drivers who chose E15 (Unleaded Plus) at St Paul Minnoco during an hour-long promotion.
From 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm, MBA and KS95 rewarded 18 drivers who switched to E15 (Unleaded Plus) over regular unleaded gasoline.
The prizes ranged from $25 in cash, Applebee’s gift cards, tickets to the Minnesota Zoo, tickets to the Crayola Experience at the Mall of America as well as KS95 merchandise.
As an added bonus, E15 was priced 15 cents less per gallon than regular unleaded gasoline during the hour-long promotion.
KS95 personality, Rudy Pavich, was on site to educate and reward drivers who switched to E15.
“This is the fifth time we’ve teamed up with KS95 to educate drivers in the Twin Cities on the benefits of using E15. We’ve found that drivers are eager to switch to E15 once they find out it’s cheaper than regular gas, is made in Minnesota and better for the environment,” said Tim Rudnicki, MBA executive director.
E15 sales in Minnesota as of July totaled 2.99 million gallons, nearly the same volume sold the whole of 2015 (3.09 million gallons).
