Pink at the Pump® is a joint effort between Iowa Renewable Fuels Association (IRFA) and Iowa Corn Promotion Board. It is a campaign to raise money for breast cancer research and support services and increase consumer awareness of the health benefits of E15. At participating retail stations, three cents of every gallon of E15 sold during the month of October will be donated to The Hormel Institute and National Breast Cancer Foundation (NCBF).

IRFA Managing Director Lucy Norton will be onsite with Casey’s General Stores and Iowa Corn Promotion Board representatives at each event to meet customers and talk about the many benefits of Unleaded 88, blended with 15 percent ethanol.

“E15 burns cleaner than petroleum gasoline and contains fewer cancer-causing chemicals,” Norton said. “It is better for the environment, human health, and our pocketbooks. I’m excited to meet with Casey’s customers to discuss these benefits and more.”

Nathaniel Doddridge, Casey’s director of fuels, said the Iowa-based chain is proud to be a part of Pink at the Pump® for the second year in a row.

“We are excited yet again to support Pink at The Pump® as we stand behind the fight against breast cancer and applaud the IRFA, Iowa Corn Promotion Board, NBCF and The Hormel Institute for leading the charge,” Doddridge said. “Not only are we excited to support awareness but also do it through a fuel product like E15 that is cleaner burning and sought after by many of our everyday customers.”

Iowa Corn Industrial Usage & U.S. Production Vice Chair Jolene Riessen praised Casey’s for its efforts to support rural Iowa by promoting E15.

“Casey’s has been a great partner in helping to expand the availability of ethanol in our state and we are excited to work with them and IRFA on this program,” the Ida Grove farmer said. “E15 is a good thing for consumers, retailers and the state of Iowa. Consumers can save money and support their local farmers by filling up with cleaner-burning E15 or E85.”

E15 is a fuel blend containing 15 percent ethanol, just five percent more ethanol than E10, the most commonly used fuel in the U.S. E15 is approved for all 2001 and newer vehicles. It is also higher in octane, which improves vehicle performance. Find fuel stations offering E15 near you by clicking here.
