Wisconsin Gives Away E85

The Wisonsin Corn Growers will be giving away free, $20 gift cards to drivers purchasing E85 ethanol fuel Saturday, Oct. 25 at the United Cooperative Cenex, Poynette and Thursday Oct. 30 at the Tri-Par Qwik Stop, West Bend.

During both events, the first 85 Flex Fuel Vehicle (FFV) owners who purchase 8.5 gallons or more of E85 between 10 a.m. and noon receive a $20 gift card courtesy of the Wisconsin Corn Growers Association. Information on ethanol and its many benefits also is available during these events from representatives of the American Lung Association of Wisconsin and the Wisconsin Corn Promotion Board.

“E85 emits lower levels of carbon and other air pollutants that can cause or exacerbate lung disease,” says Dona Wininsky, director of communications for the American Lung Association of Wisconsin. “For this reason, the fuel has been designated an official Clean Air Choice of the American Lung Association of the Upper Midwest.”
