Indiana Corn Growers Offer Ethanol Blender Pump Grants

Cindy Zimmerman

Hoosier consumers will soon be seeing new flex fuel pumps at fuel retailers across the state thanks to a new program launched by the Indiana Corn Marketing Council (ICMC).

The Flex Fuel Pump Program, unveiled during the Indiana Ethanol Forum in Indianapolis earlier this summer, awarded cost-share dollars to Indiana fuel retailers looking to install flex fuel pumps.

Recipients of the grants include Little Point Auto and Truck Stop, Inc. in Stilesville; Austin West-Side Sunoco in Austin; Eddie’s Service, Inc., in West Baden; and Capital Express Mart, LLC in Granger. Each of the stations will receive up to $20,000 in grant funds from ICMC.

“Hoosier corn farmers believe consumers should have the opportunity to have choices at the gas pump when filling up their vehicles,” said David Howell, ICMC vice president and farmer from Middletown, Ind. “The Flex Fuel Pump Program allows consumers to select the type of ethanol blend they want to use in their flex fuel vehicle and take advantage of the potential cost benefits of using ethanol.”
