Pearson Fuels opens 250th E85 fueling station in California

February 13, 2022 |

In California, Pearson Fuels opened its 250th retail E85 flex fuel station. Pearson Fuels is the largest distributor of E85 flex fuel in the U.S., delivering more than 50 million gallons of E85 flex fuel through its retail station network in 2021.

This volume of E85 represents nearly 200,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions reduced each year by California motorists choosing to fuel with E85 flex fuel rather than unleaded gasoline. Pearson Fuels is now focusing on blending its E85 with renewable naphtha, resulting in a nearly 100% renewable fuel that is 60% lower in greenhouse gas emissions compared to unleaded gasoline.

“We are excited to be working with Alex Dabit at his Kwik Serv station,” said Greg Jones, Director of Business Development at Pearson Fuels. “This 250th E85 Station milestone has been long overdue because of the pandemic, supply chain issues and material delays. In 2022, we’re looking forward to resuming our rapid pace of opening 50–60 new E85 stations per year. We’re also fortunate to have received significant funding from the USDA’s HBIIP Grant Program as well as a generous investment from the Nebraska Corn Board, Kansas Corn Commission, and Missouri Corn specifically earmarked for building out new retail E85 stations throughout California over the next 12-24 months.”
