Florin Drivers Fuel Up for a Dollar at Propel Fuels 105 Octane Tour
Appealing to high performance car drivers, 105 Octane Tour showcases the power of Flex Fuel E85 while reducing emissions and air pollution

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (May 8, 2017) – This week Florin area drivers can fuel up with Flex Fuel E85 for just $1.05 per gallon as part of Propel Fuels “105 Octane Tour” to drive awareness of the fuel’s high octane rating which provides increased power and acceleration, while reducing emissions and air pollution. E85 is a clean-burning alternative to petroleum gasoline that is performance-optimized for use in Flex Fuel vehicles. E85′s octane rating is considerably higher than premium gasoline (105 vs 91 octane) and is comparable to racing fuel, increasing vehicle horsepower and acceleration, especially in higher compression engines.

The 105 Octane Tour includes stops at five Propel stations around the greater Sacramento area. At each tour stop Propel will give away Propel ProShop swag including E85 decals, caps and mugs, register members to the elite Hi-Octane Society aficionado club, and have fuel experts on hand to answer questions. Upcoming dates and locations for the 105 Octane Tour include:

● May 10th, 10am-2pm – Florin (8062 Florin Rd.)
● May 17th, 10am-2pm – Roseville (999 Sunrise Ave.)
● June 7th, 10am-2pm – Placerville (151 Main St.)
● June 14th, 10am-2pm – West Sacramento (705 Harbor Pointe Pl.)

Unlike petroleum, E85 is made from renewable resources including sugars, grains and agricultural waste materials. Using E85 not only decreases CO2 emissions by 40% versus gasoline (California Air Resources Board); it has also helped cut the consumption of crude oil by nearly one million barrels a day.

“E85 is truly connecting with today’s smart, savvy drivers who want more value from their fuel than gasoline is giving them,” said Rob Elam, CEO of Propel. “Millennials are our fastest growth segment, as more drivers of high performance cars are seeking a powerful fuel to meet their needs.”
