GROWMARK and its member cooperatives are excited about the latest formulation of their flagship fuel, Dieselex Gold.

“It’s time to get excited and it’s time to show some passion,” said Kevin Carroll, GROWMARK Vice President for Energy, at the new reformulation “Gold Rush” kick off event for FS member cooperatives in East Peoria on Tuesday.

“Dieselex Gold is a product that has it’s beginning roots at least as Dieselex back in 1952,” he continued. “It really goes back to the beginning of our system, which was founded to provide quality petroleum products to our farmer patrons.” Carroll got a kick out of showing the 400 attendees at the event a receipt for the purchase of Dieselex from 1959. “Can you believe Dieselex at that time was under 15 and a half cents a gallon?”

Four specific areas were upgraded in the new Dieselex Gold formulation – detergency, corrosion inhibitors, stabilizing agents, and demulsifiers. In combination, these work together to fight sticky deposits known as Internal Diesel Injector Deposits (IDID) and improve the performance of ultra low sulfur diesel (ULSD) and biodiesel blended fuels.
