Minnesota corn growers get deal on flex-fuel vehicles

Agriculture.com Staff 01/25/2006 @ 1:35pm

"Flex for the Future" is a new leasing program that offers a special deal on seven flexible fuel vehicle (FFV) models to members of the Minnesota Corn Growers Association and stockholders in AgStar Financial Services. The vehicles can run on any mix of gasoline and/or E85, a blend of 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline.

The program is being announced today at the Minnesota Ag Expo in Morton, Minnesota.

The three- and five-year leases on E85-ready trucks, sedans and vans are open to the members of the Minnesota Corn Growers Association and AgStar stockholders. Although exceptions may apply, virtually anyone joining MCGA is eligible for the program.

The vehicles listed below are available under the program:

  • Chevy Silverado Extended and Crew Cab FFV pickups
  • Ford F150 SuperCab and SuperCrew FFV pickups
  • Dodge Caravan SE FFV minivan
  • Chevy Impala LT FFV sedan
  • Dodge Stratus SXT FFV sedan

Participants in Flex for the Future also get a $500 debit card for E85 fuel, no mileage limitations and a one-year membership in the National Ethanol Vehicle Coalition (http://www.e85fuel.com/).

Participants don't need to be farmers, but must be members of MCGA (three-year membership costs $200) or an AgStar stockholder.
