Propel Fuels opens its first Flex Fuel E85 Station in Washington

Propel 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.

Propel and Road Warrior celebrated the availability of Flex Fuel E85 with a $1.85/gallon event on 11 - 12 April at the Road Warrior Travel Center located at 229 Lateral A Road, Wapato, WA 98951 between Yakima, and Wapato on Highway 97.


Propel Fuels is a leading E85 retailer with a network of low carbon fuel stations in California. Propel is now expanding in the Pacific Northwest. 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.

E85 is the fastest growing fuel in California according to the Renewable Fuel Association (RFA). US-produced ethanol has 44%–52% lower greenhouse gas emissions than gasoline according to Argonne National Laboratory.

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.
