LOS ANGELES — Propel Fuels, a retailer of clean, renewable fuels, has partnered with Econation, a 2011 LCT Operator of the Year serving the Los Angeles region.

Econation will fuel its fleet of Flex Fuel vehicles at Propel locations in the greater Los Angeles area with renewable E85 fuel, which is a blend of 85% high-performance, American-made ethanol and 15% gasoline. Through Propel’s CleanDrive program, Econation can track the environmental effects of every gallon of Propel fuel pumped, including pounds of carbon dioxide that have been reduced and barrels of oil that have been displaced.

Propel’s CleanDrive program is an integrated carbon emissions reduction platform that tracks the carbon emission reductions from the use of renewable fuels purchased at Propel stations. CleanDrive graphically displays the positive impacts of renewable fuel use and tracks fuel usage across Propel’s network of stations, enabling fleets to quantify the positive impacts of their decision to use low-carbon fuels.

“Travelers appreciate being able to do something better for the environment while still experiencing the comfort, luxury and affordability they associate with a leading transportation company,” said Econation managing partner Ben Bloch. “We view this new partnership with Propel in the same light. We’re able to fuel our vehicles with the sustainable, American product they were designed for without sacrificing quality, performance or cost. And Propel’s CleanDrive reporting program complements emissions data reports that we offer our clients. It’s a natural marriage.”

“Econation is setting high standards in green transportation and introducing sustainable fuels to an entirely new sector,” said Matt Horton, CEO of Propel. “Together with great fleets, individual drivers and better choices at the pump, we are making progress at reducing our dependency on imported oil and helping meet our nation's emission reduction goals.”
Propel operates Clean Fuel Point stations throughout California and Washington state with more than 200 sites planned for new and existing markets during the next two years. Propel’s network of stations will connect drivers and fleets with low carbon fuels made from non-food sources such as agricultural byproducts and household waste.
