A Missouri-based company is getting ready to give away a new Ford F-150 flexible fuel truck. It’s MFA Oil Company and they’ll be announcing full details on Friday, May 26. Wish I could be there.
Basically, MFA Oil is partnering with Mid-Missouri Energy to help make corn-based E85 more affordable and accessible around the state. At the announcement event on Friday, MFA Oil President Jerry Taylor will explain “the numerous benefits of this project, including how it can potentially decrease Missourians dependence on foreign fuels, lower their prices at the pump, provide a boon to the corn farming industry and improve air quality.”
“As we move into Memorial Day weekend and the beginning of the summer traveling season, it is the ideal time to educate Missourians how they too can partner with MFA Oil Co. in an effort to increase the use of E85,” said MFA Oil Co. President Jerry Taylor. “This partnership will not only benefit Missouri farmers, but will put money back into the Missouri economy in an environmentally-friendly way.”
Greg Steinhoff, director of the Missouri Department of Economic Development, will also be in attendance to highlight the overall economic impact of increased E85 use in the state, which is estimated at $205 million annually. MFA Oil Co. plans to help educate Missourians on E85 and its use in flexible fuel vehicles with a program that will include the give-a-way of a new Ford F-150 flexible fuel truck.
MFA Oil Co. was established in 1929 and provides gasoline, diesel fuel and propane to customers in Missouri, Iowa, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas and Illinois. The company operates BreakTime Convenience Stores, PetroCard 24 fueling sites, Big O Tires and Jiffy Lube franchises and propane and refined fuel plants.
