RFA and the legendary Kenny Hauk of Hauk Designs recently collaborated on a project that highlights the many benefits of using ethanol fuel blends in high-performance off-road vehicles. Fans can watch the Hauk team design and build an RFA flex-fuel Jeep Wrangler JL as part of a social media campaign on RFA’s Facebook page and Instagram or check out Season 2 of “Hauk Machines” on Amazon Prime.
During this season of “Hauk Machines,” Kenny Hauk and his crew built two one-of-a-kind vehicles for the popular annual SEMA Show that took place in November 2019 in Las Vegas, including the special Wrangler for RFA. “Our goal was to build the most powerful Jeep ever built that not only functions on road and off, but looks good while doing it,” Hauk said. “We have found E85 to be an outstanding fuel option that gives us the power and performance we have been looking for in an economical package.”
The project is part of RFA’s ongoing work to stimulate positive discussions about ethanol and engage with groups who have historically expressed reservations about the use of higher ethanol blends. The SEMA Show is the premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world; last year’s show drew more than 70,000 domestic and international buyers.
Since the SEMA Show, the Jeep has been displayed at the 2020 National Ethanol Conference in Houston, TX and the 2020 Commodity Classic in San Antonio, TX. The Jeep will be on-tour later this year as off-road and public events resume.
