Gilbarco Veeder-Root this week announced E25 Field Retrofit Kits are now available for the entire line of the company’s Encore® dispensers.

Retailers interested in offering E15 fuel or any other blend up to E25 will be required to prove E25 fuel compatibility and Underwriters Laboratory (UL) approval in order to maintain the unit’s listing. Encore E25 kits provide Gilbarco’s partners with an industry first opportunity in fuel marketing and an affordable way to upgrade existing equipment with UL-certified components.

“Gilbarco is committed to helping our retailers reach the Renewable Fuel Standard goal of 36 million gallons of alternative fuels annually by 2022,” said Chad Johnson, Encore Marketing Manager for Gilbarco Veeder-Root. “We are proud to be the first in the market to offer an affordable E25 retrofit solution that will help protect and enhance their brand.”

The Encore E25 Retrofit Kit includes an innovative meter and valve assembly that enables rapid installation. These kits continue Gilbarco’s commitment to providing products that meet the changing fueling landscape while minimizing retailers’ infrastructure upgrade costs.
