Propel Fuels Partners with Econation Green Transportation Service in California

West Coast’s Largest Renewable Fuel Retailer to Provide E85 for Award-Winning Flex Fuel Fleet

LOS ANGELES, Calif.  (November 15, 2011) – Propel Fuels (www.propelfuels.com), a leading retailer of clean, renewable fuels, announced today a fueling partnership with Econation (www.econation.com), a global ground transportation company that exclusively employs the use of hybrid and alternative fuel vehicles in its fleets. Through the new partnership, Econation will fuel its fleet of Flex Fuel vehicles at Propel locations in the greater Los Angeles area with Propel’s renewable E85 fuel – a cost-effective blend of 85 percent high-performance, American-made ethanol and 15 percent gasoline. As a business member of Propel’s proprietary CleanDrive® program, Econation will also be able to track the environmental impact of every gallon of Propel fuel pumped, including pounds of CO2 reduced, barrels of oil displaced and more.

“Today more than ever, travelers appreciate being able to do something better for the environment while still experiencing the comfort, luxury and affordability they associate with a leading transportation company,” said Econation Managing Partner Ben Bloch. “We view this new partnership with Propel in the same light. We’re able to fuel our Flex Fuel vehicles with the sustainable, American product they were designed for without sacrificing quality, performance or cost. And Propel’s CleanDrive reporting program complements emissions data reports that we offer our clients. It’s a natural marriage.”

Propel’s CleanDrive system is an integrated carbon emission reduction tracking platform that tracks and displays the carbon emission reductions from the use of renewable fuels purchased at Propel stations. CleanDrive graphically displays the positive impacts of renewable fuel use including: reductions in CO2, barrels of oil displaced and reductions in foreign oil consumed. The system tracks fuel usage across Propel’s network of fueling stations, enabling businesses and government fleets to quantify the positive impacts of their decision to use low-carbon fuels, and in some cases meet mandated or voluntary fleet emission reduction goals.

“We’re proud to work with Econation who is setting high standards in green transportation and introducing sustainable fuels to an entirely new sector,” said Matt Horton, CEO of Propel. “Together with great fleets, individual drivers and better choices at the pump, we are making progress at reducing our dependency on imported oil and helping meet our nation’s emission reduction goals.”

Propel currently operates Clean Fuel Point stations throughout California and Washington State with more than 200 sites planned for new and existing markets over the next two years. Propel’s network of stations will connect drivers and fleets with low carbon fuels made from non-food sources such as agricultural byproducts and household waste as production comes online across the county.
