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 (85 cents per gallon) and giveaways, and Colorado Corn staff and others will be on site spreading the good word about this clean-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. Many common makes and models of vehicles released during the past decade are flex-fuel capable, with an estimated 250,000-plus Flex-Fuel Vehicles on the roads here in Colorado.

For anyone who is unsure if they’re driving a Flex-Fuel Vehicle, there’s typically a yellow gas cap or an emblem on the back of the vehicle indicating if it’s a Flex-Fuel Vehicle.

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

During the event taking place from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Tuesday, June 7, at the station located at 6503 29th St. in Greeley, Kum & Go and Colorado Corn are teaming up with 98.5 KYGO-FM, who will be on site giving away a pair of tickets to the Luke Bryan concert at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in September.
