Sprague Energy, Woolley Fuel celebrate first N.J. retail station

By | January 15, 2009
Sprague Energy Corp. announced in December that it is supplying New Jersey's first biodiesel retail station. Its customer, Woolley Fuel Co. of Maplewood, N.J., has begun to offer biodiesel at its retail station at 12 Burnett Ave. While some larger New Jersey fleets have been using biodiesel in their commercial facilities for a number of years, this marks the first opportunity for the general motoring public to access this beneficial fuel.

"Woolley should be commended for taking the lead in offering this environmentally friendly fuel to concerned citizens looking to offset our dependence on foreign oil imports," said Steven J. Levy, Sprague Energy managing director. "Woolley is currently pumping B5, a 5 percent biodiesel blend. They look forward to expanding to B20 in the near future.

Hopefully this will be the first of hundreds of stations carrying biodiesel throughout the state of New Jersey, joining the 1,200-plus biodiesel retail sites already existing throughout the United States."

Sprague Energy founded in 1870 and based in Portsmouth, N.H., offers clean fuels through its network of terminals in the Northeast. Biodiesel is the latest addition to a clean product line that includes ultra low sulfur diesel, Bioheat and ethanol. Sprague was the first petroleum terminal operator and marketer to earn BQ-9000 Certified Marketer status under the BQ-9000 quality control program. Sprague Energy is a member of the National Biodiesel Board. For more information, visit www.spragueenergy.com.
