Johnston, IA – A veteran participant in the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association’s (IRFA) Pink at the Pump™ campaign, this year Murphy USA is launching the program at 36 stores in Iowa, Illinois, Arkansas, Texas, and Virginia.
To kick off the company’s efforts, Murphy USA is offering a 10-cent per gallon discount on all E15 sales at its Davenport location (5805 Elmore Ave.) on Tuesday, October 3, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and at its Fort Dodge location (3010 1stAve. S) Wednesday, October 4, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Pink at the Pump™ is a partnership between IRFA, Iowa Corn Promotion Board, National Breast Cancer Foundation, The Hormel Institute, and select Iowa retailers.
It is a campaign to raise money for breast cancer research and support services and increase consumer awareness of the benefits of E15.
At participating retail stations, three cents of every gallon of E15 sold during the month of October will be donated to The Hormel Institute and National Breast Cancer Foundation.
IRFA Policy Director Grant Menke and John Findley from Iowa Corn will be onsite with Murphy USA representatives on October 3rd to meet customers and talk about the many benefits of E15.
IRFA Managing Director Lucy Norton, Carrie Dodds from Iowa Corn, and Murphy USA’s Annette Hatch will be onsite in Fort Dodge on October 4.
“E15 is the cleanest fuel choice for motorists who drive a 2001 or newer vehicle,” Norton said.
“It reduces the amount of cancer-causing chemicals and greenhouse gases coming out of your vehicle’s tailpipe. And what’s more, it is lower-cost and higher octane, a great deal for every motorist.”
E15 is a fuel blend containing 15 percent ethanol, just five percent more ethanol than the most commonly used fuel in the U.S., E10.
E15 is approved for all 2001 and newer vehicles.
It is also higher in octane, which improves vehicle performance.
