St Paul, July 11 - The Minnesota Bio-Fuels Association (MN Biofuels) and KS95 FM teamed up today at the Holiday on Old Hudson Road to reward drivers who chose E15 (Unleaded Plus) during an hour-long promotion.
From 12 pm to 1 pm, MN Biofuels and KS95 rewarded over 30 drivers with prizes that included tickets to the Minnesota Twins, St Paul Saints, Valley Fair, $20 in cash, gift vouchers to Chili's and KS95 merchandise.
"Today's event was our second event for the summer and during the hour we were at the station, we found many drivers who regularly choose E15 over regular unleaded," said Tim Rudnicki, executive director of MN Biofuels.
During the promotion, KS95's personality, Rudy Pavich, and MN Biofuels staff were at the station educating drivers on the various benefits of using E15.
"With more miles traditionally driven during the summer, it is important for drivers to learn how they can save at the pump with E15 while reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions, boosting Minnesota's economy and making America more energy independent," Rudnicki said.
Today's event was the seventh time both MN Biofuels and KS95 FM have teamed up at a fuel station in the Twin Cities metro this year to promote E15.
