In Florida, Protec is discounting E15 fuel by 15 cents a gallons and E85 by 85 cents a gallon in a launch promotion at its Kissimmee, Florida Citgo location. In addition, Protec Fuel is welcomed U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack to Mid-State Energy’s Kissimmee Citgo E15 and E85 retail station last week as the Secretary made major announcements relating to the the Biofuels Infrastructure Program.
The discounts are available at Citgo Gas Station, 3297 S. John Young Parkway in Kissimmee.
Protec Fuel, based in Boca Raton, Fla., has partnered to help manage the ethanol blends installation and provide fuel for the station’s new cleaner-burning fuels. “We are honored to host Secretary Vilsack and the USDA in making this national announcement because of their commitment to supporting the U.S. economy through ethanol blends,” said Steve Walk, Protec Fuel’s VP of Development. “Protec Fuel partners with retailers across the country in adding station value and business products by successfully implementing higher ethanol blended stations such as Mid-State Energy ‘s fueling station here.”
Higher-octane E15, a blend of 15 percent ethanol and 85 percent gasoline, is the most widely tested fuel ever sold to consumers. The ethanol portion of these fuels is 100% U.S.-made and supports jobs and keeps our money in local communities. Ethanol burns cleaner in engines, which helps the performance level of the vehicle. Since 88-octane E15 can run in any 2001 or newer gasoline engine, that equates to 80% of vehicles in the U.S.
