, What is Biodiesel and does SPINX sell it at every store?
Biodiesel is the name of a clean burning alternative fuel, produced from domestic, renewable resources. Biodiesel contains no petroleum, but it can be blended at any level with petroleum diesel to create a biodiesel blend. It can be used in compression-ignition (diesel) engines with little or no modifications. Biodiesel is simple to use, biodegradable, nontoxic, and essentially free of sulfur and aromatics.
Use of Biodiesel reduces the our dependency on foreign petroleum products and increases jobs for farmers, transporters, engineers, manufacturers and others right here at home! It is also a greener fuel that produces fewer emissions and less pollution. SPINX sells Biodiesel at 41 locations and is currently the leading nation's retailer of Biodiesel. By 2008 all diesel engines will be required to burn lower emission products.
, What is E-85 and does Spinx sell it at every store?
E-85 is an alcohol fuel mixture that typically contains a mixture of up to 85% fuel ethanol and gasoline. Use of E-85 results in reductions of greenhouse gas emissions and energy use for each gallon burned. E-85 as a fuel is becoming increasingly common in the United States, mainly in the Midwest, where corn is a major crop and is the primary source material for ethanol fuel production. E-85 should only be used in approved FlexFuel Vehicles. Ethanol is a cleaning agent and dealers recommend the fuel filter be changed when you transition a flex-fuel vehicle from gas to E85.
SPINX has made a commitment to the community to sell E-85 at a lower price than Unleaded Gas. Currently 19 SPINX locations offer E-85 which makes it the largest E-85 retailer in the Southeast.
, How can I tell if my car can run on E85?
You can visit the National Ethanol Vehicle Coalition Website to check on whether your vehicle can burn E85 and also how to convert an engine to accept E85. – less – More from ZoomInfo »
