Edwards Oil Company has opened the first E85 station in Coffe County, Tennessee. According to WDEF.com, the Shell Quik Mart on the corner of 41A and Hwy 55 in Tullahoma is now available for flexible fuel vehicle (FFV) owners.
“We are pleased and excited to be the first and only station in Coffee County. Our customers who own flexible-fuel vehicles have been asking for it, and now they have a choice to refuel their vehicles with a product that reduces air pollution, lowers our dependence on foreign oil, and helps support American farmers,” said Edwards Oil Company President Jonathan Edwards.
In 2008, Edwards Oil opened their first E85 fueling location at the Quik Mart #14 on Nashville Highway Columbia and at Quik Mart #10 on North Ellington Parkway in Lewisburg, Tennessee. Following these facilities, Edwards opened a third E85 site in Muscle Shoals, Alabama.
“More and more stations across Tennessee are offering their customers a choice of E85 and B-20. We are excited to see Edwards Oil leading the way in Coffee, Marshall, Maury and Bedford counties by offering alternative fuels to their customers” said Atha Comiskey, Coordinator of Clean Cities of Middle Tennessee Coalition. “Seeing businesses such as Edwards Oil now offering renewable fuel choices is a good thing for those of us wanting to use alternative fuel.”
Currently, there are 33 E85 stations in the state of Tennessee.
