Propel Fuels is trying to bring attention to alternative fuels, and in doing so, has opened a “Clean Mobility Center” in Fullerton, CA.
A Clean Mobility Center takes fueling to a new level, Propel said, enabling drivers to offset carbon from their fuel purchases, improve their vehicle’s fuel economy, find rideshare opportunities, tune bicycles, and recycle on the go. The Fullerton station offers E85, Flex Fuel and biodiesel blends.
In some locations, Propel stations, which number over 200 in California and Washington State, will sell the renewable fuels alongside conventional fuels. Propel plans to expand its network of Clean Fuel Points (renewable fueling stations co-located with traditional fuel stations) and the new Clean Mobility Centers. A complete list of both current and future stations is located at www.propelfuels.com.
“The facts are apparent; petroleum sales are falling, public transit ridership is up, bike lanes are expanding, and purchases of alternate fuel vehicles are on the rise – we’re seeing consumers seek new and better solutions for their transportation needs,” said Matt Horton, CEO of Propel. “Propel’s Clean Mobility Centers create a true opportunity to address this growing consumer demand and help make progress on our country’s most pressing economic and environmental issues.”
According to Propel, the new stations will allow drivers to offset carbon emissions from their fuel purchase right from the pump by directly funding clean air projects through Propel’s partnership with the Carbonfund.org Foundation in a first-in-the nation program.
“In California’s quest to provide affordable options to gasoline and diesel fuel, Propel Fuels stands out as a leader. A lot of people talk about multi-fuel stations, but Propel has set the standard by building one. We are pleased that private investors also see the trend and joined the California Energy Commission as co-investors,” said Energy Commissioner Carla Peterman.
Clean Mobility Centers also utilize green design and sustainability practices that promote cleaner transportation in the communities they serve. Starting in Fullerton, each station will have free air stations for tires to increase vehicle mpg, education centers offering information on local public transit and rideshare options, innovative bicycle tuning centers, recycling stations at the pump, and in the near future, natural gas and electric vehicle charging.
“Consumers can now vote with their wallets and choose a fuel company that better aligns with their values and interests,” said Horton. “No matter what type of car they drive, consumers can use our new stations and learn about cleaner mobility options along the way.”
