Kum & Go Ups Commitment to E15 Fuel
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — Kum & Go LC is expanding its E15 offering by adding the renewable fuel to another approximately 30 locations across 10 states by the end of 2016. This will give consumers the choice of E15 and other fuels at more than 100 Kum & Go stores.
Growth Energy, which represents the producers and supporters of ethanol, is partnering with Kum & Go to expand the company's offering of higher ethanol blends.
"Kum & Go has stepped up and responded to consumer demand for lower-cost, higher-performing and more environmentally friendly fuel by adding E15 at their pumps," stated Tom Buis, co-chair of Growth Energy. "It's been a pleasure working with such a forward-looking company and we congratulate Kum & Go on this important milestone."
The convenience store chain first began offering E15 in April 2015 at a Windsor Heights, Iowa, store, as CSNews Online previously reported.
E15 is a blend of 15 percent ethanol and 85 percent gasoline.
West Des Moines-based Kum & Go has more than 430 convenience stores across 11 states.
