There have been a lot of promotions in recent years to encourage people to buy new cars – green and otherwise – in the United States like zero percent financing and tax credits. Now, GM is offering buyers of their 2006 and 2007 FlexFuel models a $1,000 voucher card to buy fuel. Green Car Congress estimates that’ll be a little over 5,000 miles in a Tahoe.
Buyers of the FlexFuel Sierra, Silverado, Impala, Monte Carlo, Suburban, Tahoe, Yukon and Yukon XL, and Avalanche before the end of July can get the voucher card. These vehicles can run on any blend of gasoline and ethanol, from 100 percent gasoline to E85. There will be 218 car dealers in Chicago and Minneapolis-St. Paul that offer the card. GM does value convenience over ethanol, though: the vouchers can also be spent on regular gasoline.
