New Blender Pump Opens up in Broken Bow
The grand opening of the blender pump will be held Monday, April 9 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. The new blender pump is located on west Highway 2 in Broken Bow. During this time, you can register to win one of five $50 ethanol fuel gift cards. There will be additional promotions during this time also.
This E85/blender pump is one of approximately 60 in Nebraska to offer the renewable fuel, ethanol. This station will offer unleaded, E10, E30, and E85. To find a list of retailers that offer E85 and other mid-level ethanol blends visit the Nebraska Ethanol Board website at www.ne-ethanol.org or check the Nebraska Corn Board website at www.nebraskacorn.org.
Over 117,000 Nebraska motorists currently own a flexible fuel vehicle which can run on any blend of ethanol and gasoline, up to E85. To confirm if a vehicle is flex fuel, drivers can check their owner’s manual, their gas cap, look for the flex fuel emblem on their vehicle or visit the website www.ne-ethanol.org/e85.
“We are pleased to see another blender pump available to flex fuel vehicle owners,” said Kim Clark, Ag Program Manager with the Nebraska Corn Board. “Blender pumps give consumers flexibility and with gas prices hitting $4 per gallon ethanol fuel provides a cheaper alternative,” said Clark.
“Consumer choice and ethanol fuel availability are a high priority with today’s gas prices,” said Todd Sneller, Nebraska Ethanol Board’s Administrator. “When flex fuel drivers fill up on E85, they’re strengthening Nebraska’s economy, making our country more energy independent and going easier on the environment,” Sneller said.
