The Colorado Corn Growers Association, the Governor’s Biofuels Coalition (GBC) and Western Convenience Stores partnered to celebrate the opening of a new E85 pump location at 12702 Lowell Boulevard, in Broomfield, Colorado. The station sold E85 for 85 cents per gallon during the recent grand opening festivities.
“We are glad to partner with the Governor’s Biofuels Coalition (GBC) and Western Convenience who are working to expand E85 availability throughout the state. Together, we are making a difference for Colorado’s air quality and for consumers who support renewable fuel,” says Mark Sponsler, CEO of Colorado Corn. “Western Convenience, GBC, and auto industry leaders like GM have been outstanding partners in this effort.”
This new E85 station brings the total number of E85 locations in Colorado to about 90. Western Convenience has invested in 32 of those locations throughout Colorado. Eighteen stations are reportedly adding the clean, domestically produced fuel soon.
The Colorado Corn Growers Association and GBC have provided funding and support to most of the E85 refueling sites across the state.
