Growth Energy Announces Independence Day Promotion For Flex Fuel Vehicle Owners

WASHINGTON, DC – Growth Energy, the coalition of U.S. ethanol supporters, today announced a new one month promotion offering nearly $300 in E85 fuel to Flex Fuel Vehicle (FFV) owners through the “Fuel on the Fourth” contest. Starting June 1st, FFV owners can enter to win one of two E85 Fuel Credit Cards – equal to $185 and $85 respectively – by submitting a photo of themselves with their FFV along with a caption describing why they choose to buy E85 fuel. Growth Energy will select a first prize winner at random on July 1st in anticipation of July 4th – America’s Independence Day.

A second winner will be chosen based on the creativity of the photo and caption submitted. “Ethanol is America’s Independent fuel,” said Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis. “It is clean, renewable and the best part is, we can make it right here in the United States of America.”
