Support fuel choice for a chance to win a $50 gift card

Pearson Fuels is a big believer in the power of drivers like you choosing better alternatives, and they’re celebrating new contracts with five stations in the Sacramento area by offering E85 for 85 cents per gallon on Wednesday August 12 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

If you have a flex-fuel vehicle, you can save big by filling up at one of the Pearson-affiliated stations listed below.

Even if you don’t have an FFV, you can still enter our contest to help raise awareness about the need for more alternative fuel stations.

It’s easy. While you’re at the station, snap a photo of yourself at the pump and post it on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook along with the hashtag #flexfuel4all for a chance to win a $50 gift card from Amazon.


The participating stations are:

  • Shell: 5103 Fair Oaks Blvd., Carmichael, CA 95608
  • Shell: 730 29th Street, Sacramento, CA 95816
  • Shell: 3721 Truxel Road, Sacramento, CA 95834
  • Shell: 800 Ikea Court, West Sacramento, CA 95691

Good luck!

    If you can use E85 fuel that will be great for you! The pumps need to be clearly marked so consumers can not make a mistake and buy the wrong type of fuel because E85 fuel will do serious damage to engines that are not designed for it.

      Thanks for the comment, Michael. All E85 pumps are clearly labeled. Misfueling with E85 is about as likely as me putting diesel, whose pumps do everything but glow in the dark and spew confetti, into my 16-year-old Toyota. But the notion that E85 will do “serious damage to engines” is vastly overblown. We’ve heard from people who happily put E85 into their non-flex-fuel vehicles, and nothing bad happens. Cars with modern computers that control the fuel injectors usually can tell the difference. And that’s the vast majority of cars on the road.
