Growth Energy Congratulates Kwik Trip on Joining Prime the Pump, Offering E15

WASHINGTON, DC — Today, Kwik Trip has announced its move to join other major fuel retailers in offering E15—a biofuel that contains 15 percent ethanol—to customers in Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Kwik Trip is aggressively adopting E15 by leveraging existing infrastructure to offer it. The company plans to eventually offer E15 at most of its more than 500 locations.

“The list of retailers offering E15 is expanding constantly and we are excited to welcome Kwik Trip as the latest retailer to join Prime the Pump and the impressive group at the forefront of expanding fuel choices for American drivers,” said Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor. “Consumers are seeing the value E15 offers—from burning cleaner and cooler, which is better for engines and the environment, to saving up to 10 cents per gallon each trip at the pump—and we’re thrilled that more and more Americans are having access to it each day.”

Kwik Trip joins, Casey’s, Family Express, Kum & Go, MAPCO, Minnoco, Murphy USA, Protec Fuels, QuikTrip, RaceTrac, Sheetz, and Thorntons in offering their customers expanded fuel choices at the pump. E15 is approved for use in all vehicles 2001 and newer and is the most tested fuel in history. The United States Department of Energy, NASCAR, and consumers have put it to the test over millions of miles with great results.
