Atlanta to get E15 Fuel at Several Stations
Mountain Express, Protec Fuel, First in Ga. to Offer E15 Ethanol
DES MOINES, Ia.–Jan. 27, 2015 –Offering the first E15 in Georgia, Mountain
Express convenience stores, assisted by Protec Fuel, has launched the 88octane E15 at two stations in the Atlanta, Ga., metro area. E15 ethanol blend can
run in any 2001 and newer gasoline engine and costs less than regular gas. The
stations will also sell E85 fuel and B20 biodiesel fuel, which makes these
convenience stores big players in emissions-reducing, renewable fuels.
The first two locations already operating in Atlanta, with eight more set to come
on line throughout the metro area, are:
• Mountain Express-Quick Stop Food Store
855 South Cobb Drive
Marietta, GA 30060
• Mountain Express-Food Mart
405 South Walnut Street
Greensboro, GA 30642.
These are part of Protec Fuel’s station rollout of E15 sites to metropolitan areas
that include various cities in the South and Southeast. Three locations under
Protec have already opened in Florida.
Protec Fuel, based in Boca Raton, Fla., has partnered to help manage the
ethanol blends installation and provide fuel for the locations’ new cleaner-burning
fuels. “We are pleased to help introduce this ethanol fuel blend in the Southeast,”
said Todd Garner, CEO of Protec Fuel, speaking at the Iowa Renewable Fuels
Summit today. “As in the Midwest, these stations have also had success with
both E15 and E85.”
Both of the Atlanta stores are open 24 hours. Currently, and typically, both E15
and E85 are selling for less than regular gasoline. Mountain Express’s
headquarters phone is (770) 693-2623.
E15, a blend of 15 percent ethanol and 85 percent gasoline, is the most widely
tested fuel ever sold to consumers. The ethanol portion of these fuels is 100%
U.S.-made and supports jobs and keeps our money in local communities.
Ethanol burns cleaner and cooler in engines, which helps the performance level
of the vehicle. It also can extend the life of the engine. Since E15 can run in any
2001 or newer gasoline engine, that equates to 80% of vehicles in the U.S.
E85 is an alternative fuel blend that can be used in over 18.5 million vehicles
across the U.S. E85 is a blend of 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline that can be
used in flex-fuel vehicles (FFVs). There are over 100 FFV models on the market
today that can run on E85. Visit to see if you have an FFV.
