The Ascheman Uni-Mart in Appleton is the latest station to join DENCO II's E85 discount campaign.
With Ascheman Uni-Mart on-board, there are currently a total of 12 stations participating in DENCO II's campaign to offer E85 at $1 cheaper than regular unleaded gasoline.
Ascheman Uni-Mart joins the Hancock Co-op as the latest stations to join the campaign and both stations are expected to begin offering E85 at a $1 discount to regular gasoline by the end of this week.
The E85 campaign earlier this month and is expected to run throughout the summer months. The other participating stations are the Morris Food Shop, Morris Co-op Association, Jerry's U-Save Conoco (Morris), the Tri-County Co-op Association stations in Chokio and Wheaton and Cenex stations in Alexandria, Donnelly, Glenwood, Graceville and Starbuck.
The stations that have already begun offering E85 at $1 less per gallon than regular fuel are the three participating stations in Morris, the Tri-County Co-op Association stations in Chokio and Wheaton and the Cenex in Graceville and Alexandria. The other remaining stations are expected to begin offering the discounted price for E85 soon.
In fact, on April 18, the three stations in Morris were offering E85 at a $1.11 discount to regular gasoline.
Denco II is supplying the aforementioned stations with discounted E85 in April and throughout the summer. Denco II invested over $100,000 in 2011 in upgrading its ethanol load-out system to offer E85 and higher level blends directly to retailers.
Updates on the campaign will be regularly posted at Minnesota Bio-Fuels Association's Facebook and Twitter pages. To find these stations, go to MBA's E85 and Blender Pump map here
