Biofuel Stations Reach 1,900 Locations
The Stop In Food Store No. 67 at 1220 Seminole Trail in Charlottesville, VA is the 1,900th E85 station in the U.S.
The National Ethanol Vehicle Coalition member facility held its ribbon cutting ceremony the week of Jan. 7. “We are pleased to own the first public E85 retail location in Virginia and proud to offer a clean alternative transportation fuel,” noted Tom Turner of Stop In Food Stores. The facility was assisted with funds granted through the Virginia Clean Cities Coalition.
The location has 12 gasoline, two E85, and two biodiesel fueling nozzles. A 10,000-gallon compartment tank is used and holds 4,000 gallons of biodiesel and 6,000 gallons of E85. The station is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and offers a 2,400-square-foot convenience store which includes a Subway restaurant.
At this time last year, there were a total of 1,430 E85 stations across the U.S. For a complete listing of E85 fueling locations, visit www.E85Refueling.com.
