Iowa corn growers have teamed up with two Chevy dealerships to promote ethanol and the vehicles that it fuels.
Holmes Chevrolet in Norwalk and Karl Chevrolet in Ankeny are partnering with the Iowa Corn Promotion Board (ICPB) to promote flexible fuel vehicles (FFVs) and the use of E85 in Iowa. Consumers who purchase a FFV at either dealership between now and June 15, 2010 are eligible for $250 in ethanol/E85 certificates from a participating fuel station.
“One out of every 10 vehicles in Iowa are Flex-fuel vehicles and can use E85,” said Shannon Textor, Iowa Corn Director of Market Development. “Our goal is to get more FFVs on the road and to sell more ethanol blended fuel.”
Both Holmes Chevrolet and Karl Chevrolet will be able to give away up to forty $250 gift certificates that consumers can use to purchase E85 for their new or used FFV.
