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.

“Everybody knows someone whose life has been impacted by breast cancer,” said Jason Stauffer, manager of refined fuels and lubricants for STAR Energy. “The Pink at the Pump® campaign is a way for everyone to show their support. So why not use E15? The majority of vehicles that pass through our locations can use it. E15 is good for your car, good for Iowa and in the month of October it’s a good way to show your support for a great cause.”

IRFA Managing Director Lucy Norton said choosing E15 is also a great way to reduce the risk of breast cancer any month of the year.

“We are excited to partner with FAST STOP Express once again this year to promote E15 at several stations across the state,” Norton said. “E15 is an excellent fuel choice because it reduces the amount of cancer-causing chemicals in our air, reducing the risk of cancer as well as many other health issues associated with poor air quality.”

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.
