85 Cents a Gallon for E85 Ethanol
Do you have a gun at home? You will need it! When? On February 26th from noon to 2:00 p.m! Where? Conserv Fuel at 11699 San Vicente Blvd. in Brentwood. Why? Because GM is offering E85 ethanol for 85 cents a gallon. Mark the date! For the Ethanol, not for the gun, of course!
GM is sponsoring the promotion to help raise awareness about the first station in Los Angeles to offer E85 ethanol, and to encourage drivers of FlexFuel vehicles to use this cleaner, renewable fuel instead of gasoline.
"At GM, we believe the biofuel with the greatest potential to displace petroleum-based fuels and help reduce tailpipe carbon gas emissions in the United States is ethanol, and so we have made a major commitment to vehicles that can run on E85 ethanol," said Susan Docherty, general manager of GM’s 16-state Western Region, which includes California.
With more than 2.5 million FlexFuel vehicles on the road today, GM is the automotive industry leader in producing vehicles that run on E85 ethanol. That number is expected to double by 2010, with annual production of E85-capable vehicles reaching 400,000. For the 2008 model year, GM offers 11 FlexFuel models, identifiable by FlexFuel exterior badging and yellow gasoline caps.
