The Cenex C-Store at 1400 East Bridge Street in Redwood Falls will discount the price of its ethanol-blend fuels this Wednesday (Sept. 20) from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. During the promotion, E85 will be sold for 85 cents per gallon; there will also be discounts on E30 and E15 fuels.
The E85 and E30 blends are intended for use in flex-fuel vehicles only. These vehicles can use ethanol blends or gasoline interchangeably.
There is a 30 gallon limit per vehicle during the promotion. When used in a flex fuel vehicle, E85 burns cleaner than traditional gasoline. There are more than 400,000 flex fuel vehicles registered in Minnesota.
The promotion is supported by the Redwood County Corn and Soybean Growers, Minnesota Corn Growers Association, American Lung Association in Minnesota and the Minnesota Clean Air Choice Team.
