KS Corn's Wrapped Car

-originally released by the Kansas Corn Commission

The Kansas Corn Commission's ethanol-powered Ford Taurus has a new look. The Taurus was treated to a car wrap that features ears of corn floating from a cornfield into a blue sky. Lettering on the car touts the use of ethanol-blended fuels. The Kansas Corn Commission will use the car to promote ethanol and corn at fair parades and other events throughout the year.

"We wanted a car that would give a positive message about ethanol and corn." The Commission's Director of Value Added Products Robert White said. "This isn't just a car with a picture on it. The entire car is the picture-it's a real head-turner."

The 2002 Ford Taurus is a flexible fuel vehicle, which can run on any combination of regular unleaded and ethanol up to 85 percent ethanol. The Commission is active in efforts to increase the use and availability of ethanol-blended fuels.

The commission is also active in efforts to expand the infrastructure to increase the use of E85 fuel, an 85 percent ethanol fuel that can be used in flexible fuel vehicles. Kansas currently has two public fueling stations for E85 fuel located at 1235 Wanamaker Road in Topeka and at 5340 North Maize Road in Maize. The state soon could have additional E85 fueling sites.

The Taurus will be at several fair parades and events in the next month.
