Flex Fuel Fishermen Can Land E85 Savings

Anglers heading to the 2012 Fishing Opener this weekend in Coon Rapids, Minnesota can catch a deal Friday afternoon on 85% ethanol (E85).

The new Holiday station off Highway 10 near Hanson Blvd. in Coon Rapids is kicking off the weekend by offering E85 for an 85¢ per gallon discount on Friday, May 11 from 3-5 p.m. Those lucky enough to be one of the first 20 flex fuel vehicles in line will get E85 for just $1.85 per gallon.

“The new Holiday station in Coon Rapids is one of many stations in Minnesota that offer their customers a Clean Air Choice at the pump,” said Kelly Marczak, environmental programs director for the American Lung Association in Minnesota. “More than a quarter million Minnesotans have flex fuel vehicles that can use E85, and I encourage them to use this cleaner burning fuel whenever possible.”

E85 is for flex fuel vehicles only, and there is a 20-gallon limit per customer during the promotion. Fishing licenses are available at the station, and there will be other in-store specials during the event which is being sponsored by The Linn Companies, Minnesota Corn Growers Association, the American Lung Association in Minnesota, and the Minnesota Clean Air Choice Team. Installation of the E85 dispensing equipment at the site was supported, in part, by funding from a U.S. Department of Energy program.

For those wanting to use a GPS to locate the Holiday station, the address is 1855 Gateway Drive, Coon Rapids.
