Kum & Go recently announced it will be offering E15 at more than 100 stores across the country by the end of the year. Of the 100 stores, about 30 will feature new infrastructure, including several newly opened stores, with the balance being retrofitted to offer cleaner-burning lower-cost E15.
“We’re excited and thrilled to hear Kum & Go’s plans to add lower-cost E15 to more than 100 stores across the nation,” stated Iowa Renewable Fuels Association (IRFA) Executive Director Monte Shaw. “E15 is a trusted, high-performance fuel that’s also a win for consumers, often being priced 5 to 10 cents less than E10. Kum & Go’s announcement means Iowa should continue to lead the way in providing consumers the choice of cleaner-burning, homegrown E15.”
“Kum & Go has stepped up and responded to consumer demand for lower cost, higher performing, and more environmentally friendly fuel by adding E15 at their pumps. It’s been a pleasure working with such a forward-looking company and we congratulate Kum & Go on this important milestone,” stated Growth Energy Co-Chair Tom Buis. “This milestone underlines the fact that American consumers have embraced E15 for the savings it provides at the pump and because they demand 21st century fuel for 21st century cars. E15 is specially designed to work with today’s modern cars because the extra octane helps engines perform at their best.”
