Minneapolis, October 7 - The Minnesota Bio-Fuels Association (MN Biofuels) and KS95 FM rewarded drivers who chose Unleaded Plus (E15) at the ARCO on Nicollet Avenue in Minneapolis on Oct 3 during an hour-long promotion.
During the promotion, MN Biofuels and KS95 rewarded 16 drivers with prizes that included $20 in cash, tickets to the Crayola Experience, gifts cards to Applebee’s, passes to Valley Fair, gift cards to Seven Steakhouse and KS95 merchandise.
KS95 personality, Carissa Sherman, and MN Biofuels staff were at the station during the promotion educating drivers on the benefits of using E15.
“E15 is made in Minnesota, is cheaper than regular unleaded and reduces harmful greenhouse gas emissions,” said Tim Rudnicki, executive director at MN Biofuels.
Last week’s event was the 13th time MN Biofuels and KS95 have teamed up this year to promote E15 to consumers in the Twin Cities metro.
According to data from the Minnesota Department of Commerce, the volume of E15 sold in Minnesota this year as of August 31 was 50.57 million gallons. The volume of E15 sold for the whole of 2018 was 59.4 million gallons.
