The Minnesota Bio-Fuels Association has presented its 2017 Distinguished Retailer Award to Drake Properties LLC, which owns three E15 stations in the Twin Cities metro.
“This award recognizes Drake Properties’ commitment to offering consumers a clean and locally-produced choice at the pump. In under 12 months, E15 has been made available in three of its locations,” said Tim Rudnicki, executive director of the Minnesota Bio-Fuels Association, who presented the award to company owner Andrea Drake at their station in White Bear Lake.
“I see E15 going the same way as leaded to regular unleaded. We will see a transition where E15 will be the new regular and 87 Octane will be a thing of the past. E15 is the minimum standard we should be at,” said Drake.
The company’s three E15 stations are among the 252 stations in the state that offer E15 and have contributed to a record-breaking year for E15 sales in Minnesota.
