Kwik Trip to Add E15 to its Pumps
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 05/02/2017
One of Wisconsin's largest suppliers of gasoline announced plans to add E15 to most of its locations within the next few years. Kwik Trip said once all of the designated pumps are converted, the company will likely have the highest number of E15 locations in
the United States.
The convenience store chain has over 500 retail outlets in Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota. Fuel Marketing Manager Joel Hirschboeck says the company will use its existing fueling infrastructure to offer E15, including at the more than 90 sites where it currently
sells E85--which is an 85% ethanol/gasoline blend.
"We pride ourselves on offering consumers a first-class experience at our convenience stores," Hirschboeck said. "Part of the value we can provide consumers is through offering them an array of choices at the pump. Adding E15 was an important step for us."
Kwik Trip says E15 is a clean-burning, high performing fuel that also delivers savings when drivers pull up to the pump.
Casey's General Stores recently announced it would begin offering E15 and E85 blends at many of its locations in the Midwest.
