ANNAWAN — In support of Patriot Renewable Fuels’ five-year anniversary, Gold Star FS is offering discounted E-85 fuel at its Fast Stop station, located off Interstate 78 at Route 78 (exit 33), just west of Patriot’s facility.
During the open house on Thursday and Friday, customers can purchase E-85 for $1.85 per gallon between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
“Gold Star FS is pleased to support Patriot Renewable Fuels’ fifth anniversary producing clean-burning ethanol fuel from local corn,” said Greg Robinson, Gold Star FS energy management specialist. “Ethanol is a homegrown fuel that helps support the American family farm and reduces our dependence on foreign oil.”
Patriot purchases more than 40 million bushels of corn from local farmers and produces 120 million gallons of ethanol each year at the Annawan facility.
