WAPATO, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#E85Propel Fuels, a leading low carbon fuel retailer, has opened the company’s first Flex Fuel E85 station in Washington State, partnering with the Road Warrior Travel Center to introduce a new low cost, high performance fuel choice to the Yakima Valley.

Beginning in Yakima Valley, Propel is expanding access for Washington drivers to Propel Flex Fuel E85, a more affordable alternative to petroleum that is compatible with all Flex Fuel vehicles and can be used interchangeably with gasoline. Flex Fuel E85 provides a drop-in, easy to use, affordable and high-performance alternative to traditional petroleum fuels. Drivers can check if their vehicle can use Flex Fuel E85 at:

E85 is the fastest growing fuel in California according to the Renewable Fuel Association (RFA). U.S.A. produced ethanol has 44%–52% lower greenhouse gas emissions than gasoline according to the Department of Energy, Argonne National Laboratory.

“Our team is thankful for the opportunity to bring affordable, low carbon fuels to the drivers of Washington state. We are working with Road Warrior and members of the Yakama Nation to bring customers fuels that provide better value and higher performance, while honoring our natural environment,” said Rob Elam, CEO of Propel Fuels. “We’re happy to be back home in Washington, where our company was founded almost 20 years ago, bringing the best clean fuels to customers, while promoting sustainability and supporting local economies.”

“Road Warrior is proud to be working with Propel Fuels to bring high performance and low emissions Flex Fuel E85 to drivers in Eastern Washington and provide a lower cost fuel option to the Yakima market,” said Kamiakin Wheeler, President of Road Warrior Travel Center.

Propel has re-entered Washington State to provide solutions for the state’s recently implemented Clean Fuel Standard (CFS). Washington’s CFS provides a boost to the low carbon transition, creating a market for the carbon reductions generated by the fuels, making them more valuable to retailers and more affordable to consumers. Propel’s wholesale supply program is a streamlined and easy way for station owners in Washington to add new fuel choices and customers to their stations, increase a station’s fuel volume and bring additional customers to the c-store.

Propel has opened an office in White Salmon, Washington and plans to continue expanding its partnerships with regional station owners to improve access to fast-growing low carbon fuels.
