According to the American Lung Association of Iowa, September has proven to be THE month for ethanol blended fuels! The state held several successful events promoting the domestically grown fuel.
“We would like to welcome our first three blender pumps to the state of Iowa: Galva Holstein in Galva, Unity Biofuels in Olds, and Popkes in Rock Rapids,” noted Jessica Zopf of the Iowa Clean Air Choice Team. “Collectively these pumps offer E10, E15, E20, E30, and E85. A big thanks goes to the Department of Agriculture for attending and showing their support for cleaner-burning fuels! A special thanks also goes to Kum & Go for their commitment to offering renewable fuels with their 17th E85 location in Iowa.”
Following is a run down of the events the past month:
