Washington, D.C. – As drivers across the country hit the road during this busy holiday travel season, Growth Energy is launching a digital advertising campaign in E15 markets to educate drivers about the clean, high-performance fueling option that can save families money.
Users of Facebook and Twitter in select markets will see ads highlighting the environmental and performance benefits of E15 (fuel containing 15 percent ethanol). E15 is Environmental Protection Agency-approved for use in cars model year 2001 and newer, which make up 90 percent of the vehicles on the road. By using a fuel with more American-made biofuel, drivers will help decrease greenhouse gas emissions and displace more toxic fuel additives linked to cancer and smog. Drivers can also expect to save anywhere from 5 to 15 cents per gallon and get more miles per dollar.
“E15 is an ideal fuel for drivers on the go during the holiday season,” said Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor. “This is a time of year when families are on the road more than usual, and E15 is a fueling option that they can feel good about. It’s a 21st century fuel that is good for the environment and the family car. We want drivers who value performance and cleaner fuel options to know E15 is the perfect fuel for them, and our education campaign will help us spread that message.”
AAA estimated in 2016 that nearly 100 million Americans took a holiday road trip. E15 is available at more than 1,200 locations across 29 states and drivers can find a participating retailer near them by visiting GetBiofuel.com. Growth Energy is proud to partner with leading retailers including Casey’s, Cenex, Family Express, Kum & Go, Kwik Trip, MAPCO, Minnoco, Murphy USA, Protec Fuel, QuikTrip, RaceTrac, Sheetz, and Thorntons to offer E15 to their customers.

Here’s a quote that sums things up: “We are sick of the runaround on the E15,” said Kevin Ross, an Iowa farmer from Pottawattamie County, which Trump won with 58 percent of the vote. “This is something that has gone on way too long.”
