North Dakota retailers are pretty in pink this October. Eighteen Unleaded88 fuel retailers across the state are participating in the third annual Pink at the Pump® campaign to raise funds for breast cancer awareness while increasing consumer awareness about Unleaded88 – a higher octane fuel containing 15 percent ethanol and 85 percent gasoline. Participating retailers will donate three cents of every gallon of Unleaded88 sold from Oct. 1-31 to North Dakota Women’s Way.

“North Dakota’s corn growers are proud to be a partner in this effort,” says Terry Wehlander, North Dakota Corn Utilization Council chairman. “Ethanol is the world’s cleanest source of fuel octane. By choosing Unleaded88 during October, consumers are fighting breast cancer at the pump while supporting North Dakota’s corn farmers.”

Unleaded88 is a fuel blend containing 15 percent ethanol, just five percent more ethanol than E10, the most commonly used fuel in the U.S. Unleaded88 is often sold at a 5- to 10-cent per-gallon discount to E10 and is approved by the Environmental Protection Agency for use in all 2001 and newer vehicles.
