The American Lung Association in Wisconsin Clean Air Choice Team will be traveling throughout Wisconsin for the next few months to reward motorists through their “Tanks-a-Lot” promotion. As part of their effort to support cleaner burning fuels, members of the Wisconsin Clean Air Choice program will surprise lucky motorists who pull up to refuel with E85 at Wisconsin gas stations that offer this higher ethanol blend.
“Buying a tank of E85 for an unsuspecting motorist is one way that we can say thanks to people who regularly use the cleaner burning, renewable fuel,” said Jerry Medinger, manager of the Clean Fuels & Vehicle Technologies program for the American Lung Association in Wisconsin. “I encourage anyone who sees our colorful red, white, blue flex-fuel Chevy Impala at the stations to ask us about E85 and find out how it helps our environment.”
On July 30th Carrie, a loyal E85 user, was more than surprised and appreciated the free fuel she received at the “Tanks-a-Lot” stop made in Watertown, WI. Not only was the tank near empty, it was also just before payday and not having to pay for Tuesday’s fuel purchase couldn’t have come at a better time she said.
On August 7th Carol picked the right time to fill up with E85 in Lake Mills, WI. She received 14.5 gallons of clean, renewable fuel – for free.
Clues to the “Tanks-a-Lot” stops are posted on the Clean Air Choice Facebook page.
