Alternative Fuels

1ST Choice Energy offers an expanded product line which includes ethanol, soy biodiesel, compressed natural gas (CNG), and propane for powering trucks and school busses. Not only are these products made or gathered here in the United States, but the crops required to produce ethanol and biodiesel are grown by our member-owners, who purchase their inputs through the cooperative. It’s a true win-win for our customers.

We offer: 

  • Ethanol – We have ethanol blender pumps installed at Kenton, Richwood, Mechanicsburg and Urbana. Those pumps allow customers the option of E-10, E-15, E-30, E-85.
  • Soy Biodiesel
  • CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) – Available 24/7 at our Kenton location
 

1ST Choice Energy offers an expanded product line which includes ethanol, soy biodiesel, compressed natural gas (CNG), and propane. Not only are these products made here in the U.S., but renewable fuels create a virtuous cycle between farmer and cooperative. As a farmer cooperative, we provide seeds, chemicals, and fertilizers to grow the corn and soybeans used to manufacture ethanol and soy biodiesel fuels. Each year we can see these crops grow into the fuels that tractors and combines will then use to harvest them. 

1ST Choice Energy also offers E-85, a blend of 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline. This blend allows maximum use of ethanol in Flex Fuel vehicles while lowering exhaust emissions. At four of our fule stations, we also offer E-15 and E-30. The E-15 blend can be used for most contemporary car and truck models and should be slightly lower priced than regular gasoline. The E-30 blend can be used in Flex Fuel vehicles and is the unofficial optimum blend of ethanol to give the best mileage performance.

Compressed natural gas (CNG) is gaining popularity as a lower-cost and cleaner-burning fuel. 1ST Choice Energy has partnered with Trillium CNG to bring this clean fuel alternative to our fueling station in Kenton, Ohio. Natural gas is a healthier alternative to conventional petroleum based fuels because it produces significantly fewer tailpipe emissions. Utilizing natural gas can cut net greenhouse emissions by 25% when compared to gasoline or diesel vehicle exhaust.
