Huntington Beach Drivers Have a New Choice at the Pump as Propel Fuels Opens Renewable Fuel Station

Grand opening offers $10 of free E85 Flex Fuel to encourage the community to try clean, American-made fuel

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif.  (January 15, 2013) – Propel Fuels (www.propelfuels.com), a leading retailer of renewable fuels and clean mobility solutions, today announced the opening of its newest renewable fuel station, co-located at the G&M gas station at 16990 Beach Boulevard?in Huntington Beach (map). Conveniently located off the 405 Freeway, the sixth Propel station in the greater Los Angeles area makes it easy for consumers and fleets to fuel their vehicles with environmentally friendly, American-made fuels. As part of the opening celebration Tuesday, January 15th through Thursday, January 17th, Propel and partner G&M Oil will provide local drivers and fleets $10 of free E85 Flex Fuel to encourage the community to experience filling with clean, quality certified, renewable fuels.

“Consumers and businesses across California have shown us that access to renewable fuels is important to them, so we’re continuing to grow our network of stations here in Southern California,” said Matt Horton, CEO of Propel. “This is an ideal location for us, providing quick access off a major freeway, while serving a new community of Flex Fuel vehicle owners. We’re excited to bring more choice at the pump to Huntington Beach and help make progress toward our nation’s clean energy goals.”

Today more than one million Californians drive alternative fuel-ready vehicles, but the majority do not have access to renewable fuels. Numerous cars and trucks from manufacturers such as Chevy, Ford, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Mercedes, and Toyota are E85 Flex Fuel compatible. Drivers can simply switch back and forth between Flex Fuel and gasoline any time they want. Vehicles that can run on E85 can be identified by the manufacturer’s yellow gas cap or through the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). Drivers can also check their vehicle’s E85 compatibility on Propel’s website at: www.propelfuels.com/driveE85.

Drivers and fleets can track and report CO2 emission reductions from their use of renewable fuels through Propel’s proprietary CleanDrive® program (www.propelfuels.com/cleandrive). Logging in at each fill up, CleanDrive members receive personalized emissions reports showing their reductions in CO2 emissions, barrels of oil displaced, and equivalent annual impact of mature trees. Along with thousands of loyal individual consumers, Propel customers include hundreds of private and public fleets, including the United States Postal Service, the California Department of General Services, and the Department of Transportation.

Propel currently operates a network of more than 30 stations throughout California and Washington State with more than 200 stations planned for new and existing markets over the next two years. Other Los Angeles area locations include Arcadia, Fullerton, Harbor City, Norwalk, Wilmington, and Torrance (coming soon). As even more sustainable fuel technologies advance, Propel’s station platform provides the flexibility to offer new fuel choices into the future. Propel will continue to work with the very best current and next-generation fuel suppliers to bring responsible, high performance renewables fuels into all its fuel blends.
