Kum & Go is teaming up with the Colorado Corn Administrative Committee (CCAC) this summer to host a series of events along the Front Range, drawing attention to ethanol, E85 and flex-fuel vehicles, and informing the public of their many benefits.

The events this summer will include big discounts on E85 (at 85 cents per gallon) and giveaways, and Colorado Corn staff and others will be on site spreading the good word about this cleaner-burning, American-made biofuel. E85 is an abbreviation for a fuel blend of typically 70 to 85 percent ethanol with the remainder being gasoline, and is available for use in flex-fuel vehicles (FFVs).

In addition to CCAC and Kum & Go’s involvement, local ethanol producer, Front Range Energy in Windsor, is supporting these events by supplying the E85 fuel for Kum & Go’s promotions.

To learn more about how ethanol is reducing greenhouse gas emissions, reducing our dependence on foreign oil, making an economic impact on our rural economies, and bringing other positive benefits to the table, read a recent editorial by CCAC Vice President and Longmont-area farmer Mike Lefever.

These events are taking place:
* June 7, Greeley (6503 29th Street)
* June 14, Colorado Springs (5771 N. Carefree Circle)
* June 21, Mead (13799 Pacific Circle)
* June 28, Colorado Springs (7375 Duryea Drive)
* July 5, Wellington (8150 6th Street)
* July 12, Monument (1410 Cipriani Loop)

Who is Colorado Corn? 
Colorado Corn, based in Greeley, is made up of the Colorado Corn Administrative Committee and the Colorado Corn Growers Association. 
The Colorado Corn Administrative Committee (CCAC) oversees how Colorado’s corn check-off dollars (one penny per bushel of corn produced in Colorado) are spent on research, market development, outreach, education and other various endeavors. 
The Colorado Corn Growers Association (CCGA) is comprised of dues-paying members who are politically active, focusing on policy that impacts corn producers and ag in general.
