New Ethanol Blender Pumps Unveiled

gilbarco ethanol flex fuelThis week Gilbarco introduced the industry’s first alternative fuel blending dispensers.

Designed to blend ethanol or biodiesel with standard fuels, the new blenders have Weights & Measures approvals.

With access to cost effective supplies of alternative fuel feedstock, this product provides fuel station owners with the ability to add flexibility to their operation while improving site profitability and helping the environment.

“The new ethanol blenders are going to provide opportunities for more retailers to sell alternative fuels,” said Brian Beggs of Walt’s Petroleum Service in Schofield, Wisconsin. “Greater availability will also make it easier and more convenient for consumers to find and use ethanol.”

Gilbarco is in the process of obtaining U.L. approval for up to E85 and will submit for approval of biodiesel when a U.L. specification is issued.

It's good to see the mention of "consumers" in an alternative fuel related article! However, are US consumers driving enough of these vehicles to stir a major demand such that there is a true "need" for abundant fueling locations for E85?

I don't know, but recently MIS Green released an Alternative Fuels consumer survey asking just these questions that are relevant. Please check out the survey at Hopefully, your participation will assist MIS Green with answering these significant questions around alternative fuels!
