Kroger Becomes first National Retailer of E85


Kroger will offer VeraSun’s branded E85, a blend of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline, for Flexible Fuel Vehicles (FFV) at 20 different locations in and around the Dallas and Houston metro areas.

With this addition in Texas, VeraSun now has more than 140 retail fueling stations in 13 states and the District of Columbia. VeraSun and Kroger initially partnered in August 2007 to open VE85™ fueling locations at 20 Kroger convenience stores primarily in Ohio, making Kroger the first national retailer to sell VE85™.

“We look forward to offering VE85™ to our customers who have flexible fuel vehicles,” stated Roman Williams, Kroger southwest fuel merchandiser. “Our Kroger fuel centers have been leaders with new fuel products and services like E85 and fuel rewards.”
