WASHINGTON, DC – Growth Energy, the coalition of U.S. ethanol supporters, today launched its one month “Fuel on the Fourth” promotion offering nearly $300 in E85 fuel to Flex Fuel Vehicle (FFV) owners. Starting today through July 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.
“Increasing the use of Ethanol in our fuels has helped make America more energy independent by reducing the importation of millions of barrels of oil,” said CEO Tom Buis. “Through the Fuel on the Fourth promotion, we are rewarding Flex Fuel Vehicle owners who are helping to make this country cleaner, greener and more energy secure by putting clean, renewable fuel in their tanks.”
The Fuel on the Fourth promotion is designed to show the benefits of Flex Fuel Vehicles – which are capable of operating on any combination of conventional and renewable fuels – and recruit additional members to Growth Force, a group that believes in a cleaner, greener America through the use of biofuels. FFV owners wishing to participate in the contest will be asked to join Growth Force. Membership to the group is free.
The contest will run between June 1st and July 1st and is open to FFV owners. Photos and submissions will be featured on the Growthenergy.org and Growthforce.org websites. To enter, participants must complete a form located at www.growthforce.org/fuelonthefourth.
For questions about the promotion, please contact Casey Schlechter at 605-965-2344 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
