Car Dealer Opens E85 Station
CleanFUEL Distribution and General Motors held a grand opening event for a new E85 fueling station in Grapevine, Texas owned by Classic Chevy/Hummer. Over 3,200 gallons of E85 sold for 85 cents per gallon this morning to celebrate the opening.
Classic Chevrolet/HUMMER spent more than $500,000 to install nine pumps dedicated to E85, E10 and biodiesel at its new Classic Clean Fuels station.
In 2007, the Hummer dealership sold more Chevrolet trucks than any dealership within the United States. Charles Martin, general manager of Classic Chevrolet/Hummer said, “We sell a lot of trucks capable of running on alternative fuels like E85 and, even though there has been some increased availability, we saw a need for more E85 pumps where drivers could fill up. This was the right thing for us to do for our customers and it’s good for the Metroplex.”
