RFA and the legendary Kenny Hauk of Hauk Designs are collaborating 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 airing on RFA’s Facebook page and Instagram, followed by a special “Hauk Machines” Amazon Prime video series airing soon.
During this season of “Hauk Machines,” Kenny Hauk and his crew are building two one-of-a-kind vehicles for the popular annual SEMA Show that will take place in November 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.
