A Look Back at the E30 ChallengeHannah
Conventional wisdom says our non-flex vehicles can only operate on 10 percent ethanol blends. As the area leader in innovative fuels, we are challenging conventional thinking in order for our customers to realize the true advantages of biofuels, such as ethanol. In the spring of 2016, we teamed up with Glacial Lakes Energy, LLC to create a fundamental change in the way we fuel our automobiles, called the E30 Challenge. This challenge was recently covered in the CHS C Magazine. To read the full article click here.
The E30 Challenge provided a $0.30 cents per gallon discount on E30 fuel to participants. Drivers would then compare the results of horsepower and fuel economy on three tanks of E30 versus three tanks of E10. The challenge was both exciting and provided convincing results to those who participated. “E30 is now our No. 2 product, just behind E10 sales. It’s been a fantastic product for us and for our customers,” said Jared Landmark, CEO of Sioux Valley Coop.
Given the overall interest and success of the E30 Challenge, we are now offering delivery services for higher blends of ethanol from E15 to E85 to your farm or business. We are proud to say we are on the leading curve of innovative fuels, and with the success of our E30 challenge we encourage you to try E30 on your next fill up!
