The Andersons to supply first E85 pumps in MaumeeWritten by Zach Davis | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Due to a partnership with Toledo 76, The Andersons has become the exclusive supplier of E85 ethanol fuel at a PS Food Mart Sunoco station in Maumee.
“It was important to us to be able to offer an E85 option to customers in this area who own Flex Fuel vehicles,” Vice-President of Operations for Toledo 76 Ed Heath said. “We are very pleased to be able to partner with Maumee-based The Andersons as the exclusive supplier.”
The station located on the corner of Ford Street and Illinois Avenue will now have two fueling positions for Flex Fuel vehicles to use the E85 fuel. Flex Fuel vehicles run on gasoline or a blend of up to 85 percent ethanol.
“This was a big deal for owners of Flex Fuel vehicles in this area,” The Andersons Ethanol Marketing Manager John DiMartini said. “This is the only station in Maumee that offers an E85 option which has been as much as $1 per gallon cheaper than regular gasoline in recent months.”
The Anderson blends the E85 in its ethanol facilities located in Indiana and Michigan.
