Clean FuelsLouisiana has become the 41st state to have at least one retail E85 fueling station with the grand opening Thursday at a Pumpelly Oil station in Sulphur.

According to the National Ethanol Vehicle Coalition, the facility is a partnership between CleanFUEL Distribution, CleanFUEL USA and Protec Fuel Management, and Pumpelly Oil. CleanFUEL USA manufactured the dispenser, CleanFUEL Distribution is providing the fuel, and Pumpelly Oil owns the station.

“This is something that’s good for the environment and promotes cleaner air for our state,” said Glenn Pumpelly, president of Pumpelly Oil. “We look forward to continued work with CleanFUEL USA and CleanFUEL Distribution to be a solution provider for people who want to use not only ethanol but also biodiesel and propane.”
