As of September 16, 2013, all gasoline at any branded Kwik Stop will contain a 10% alcohol blend, with the exception of 91 grade (premium). This change is a result of the Magellan pipeline system conversion from 87 conventional octane-base gasoline to 84 octane-base gasoline.
Kwik Stop on 16th Street (projected to open in March 2014) will offer these required fuels, in addition to a regular gasoline without alcohol.
Branded Kwik Stop locations will offer the following gasoline products:
There are many projected advantages to the use of renewable fuels.
These advantages include:
Q: What is a renewable fuel?
A: A renewable fuel is a fuel source produced from a renewable resource. Ethanol is an example of a renewable fuel produced by the fermentation of plant sugars, typically corn.
Q: What is the difference between Kwik Stop’s 87 plus (regular), 89 plus (plus), and 91 (premium) grade fuels?
A: 87 plus contains 87 octane and 10% alcohol, 89 plus contains 89 octane and 10% alcohol, and 91 gasoline contains 91 octane and NO alcohol.
Q: How do 87 plus and 89 plus perform in cars?
A: 87 plus and 89 plus fuels will perform similar to equivalent gasoline without ethanol.
Q: Is ethanol safe for motorcycles and boats?
A: Harley-Davidson’s owner’s manual states that, "fuels with an ethanol content of up to 10% may be used in your motorcycle without affecting vehicle performance." Ethanol-blended fuels are not recommended for marine engines or small equipment engines. To ensure that ethanol-blended gasoline is compatible with any engine, consult your owner’s manual or speak with the engine manufacturer.
