A New Way to Fuel Up in the Fraser Valley
July 17, 2019

Otter Co-op’s Gas Bar and Cardlock in Aldergrove began to undergo upgrades to serve you better on July 16th, beginning with a ceremonial sod turning. These upgrades will include a brand new 6 pump and lane cardlock facility, a modified gas bar and renovated convenience store. Following these renovations throughout the coming months, Otter Co-op will debut a new alternative fuel offering: E-85 Fuel.

Branded CO-OP® Flex E-85, this fuel is engineered for today’s Flex Fuel Vehicles. This domestically produced fuel blend contains between 51 to 83 per cent ethanol, a much higher percentage than regular gasoline, which typically contains up to 10 per cent. This results in a high-performance fuel with significantly reduced emissions. Otter Co-op will be the first provider of this alternative fuel in the Fraser Valley, and one of the first in British Columbia

“At Otter Co-op, we’re always looking for new ways to meet the needs of our members and customers and provide them with exceptional value and service,” said Jack Nicholson, CEO of Otter Co-op.

“As part of the renovations at the Otter Co-op Gas Bar in Aldergrove, we saw an opportunity to provide Co-op Flex E-85 fuel with one of our dispensers, an exciting product that we’re proud to soon deliver at an affordable price. Drivers with Flex Fuel Vehicles will soon be able to take advantage of the technology that’s built into their vehicles and enjoy the performance and environmental benefits of this alternative fuel.”

Flex Fuel Vehicles are available from most major auto manufacturers and can typically be recognized by a Flex Fuel logo on the vehicle. Drivers who choose Co-op Flex E-85 can expect these benefits:

• Renewable: The ethanol used in Co-op Flex E-85 is produced from renewable resources, such as corn.
• Reduced emissions: Co-op Flex E-85 has a greater oxygen content than other gasoline products, resulting in a cleaner burning fuel that reduces CO2 emissions and improves air quality.
• Performance: Co-op Flex E-85 has an exceptionally high-octane rating, which results in increased power and acceleration.
• Flexible: Flex Fuel Vehicle owners can seamlessly switch between Co-op Flex E-85 and other gasoline products.
