           Evaluate your options and consider
                    the opportunities


•Are sales of petroleum products declining?
   •What % of total sales are mid-grade and premium?
   •What’s the status of my franchise agreement?
      •Can I remove a product.
      •Can I add a product.

•Does the physical facility lend itself to another
UST/AST?

•What’s the existing customer base of FFVs?

•Is this base going to continue to grow?

•Can I acquire E85 at a reasonable price?
The Steel Tank Institute has researched
compatibility issues concerning the
storage of ethanol based fuels. STI labeled steel
underground and aboveground storage tanks,
when used for the storage of ethanol based fuels,
have exhibited no detrimental structural or
permeation issues. As with all fuels, STI
recommends that tank owners implement a
maintenance program for all tanks
and associated equipment.

• OPW 11AP-0492 & 11BP-0492
  Nozzel

• The OPW 11AP-0492 and 11BP-
  0492 nozzles are designed for use
  with today’s alternative fuels, and
  feature a protective, electroless,
  nickel-plated body and spout to
  prevent contamination of E85, E100
  and methanol fuels.
OPW 66V-0492 Breakaway valve

The OPW 66V-0492 is designed for use with today’s alternative fuels. It is to
be installed on fuel dispensing hoses, and will separate when subjected to a
designated pull force. The dual valves seat automatically, stopping the flow of
fuel and limiting any fuel spillage, while protecting the dispensing equipment.
For proper operation, the OPW 66V-0492 3/4" must always be installed with a
“straightening” hose with a minimum length of 12".
OPW 241TPS-0492 Nozzle Swivel

The OPW 241TPS-0492 also features a protective, electroless, nickel-plated
body and spout to prevent contamination of E85, E100 and methanol fuels.

The two-planes rotation, the first plane (at nozzle inlet) allows 360 degrees
swivel action for easy rotation of the nozzle away from the dispenser. The
second plane (at hose connection) provides 270 degrees swivel action, for
easy nozzle positioning fillpipes. In addition to the customer convenience
benefits, the unique two-plane rotation helps reduce hose kinking and
premature hose wear.

 Tax credits

     State Infrastructure Tax Credit
A state tax credit is available for the installation of clean fuel
vehicle fueling infrastructure located in the state. The tax credit
is equal to 50% of the cost of the infrastructure. This includes
infrastructure for storing or dispensing a clean-burning fuel
into the fuel tank of a motor vehicle powered by that fuel, as
well as infrastructure used for recharging electric vehicles.
Eligible clean fuels include natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas,
hydrogen, electricity, and any other fuel that is a least 85%
ethanol or other alcohol. This credit does not apply after
December 31, 2010.

What is a BTU?

                          British Thermal Unit-
                          standard tool to
                          measure energy content
                          1-BTU = approx. Energy
                          content of a kitchen
                          match
 E85 contains 73% of BTUs as
 unleaded on arithmetic basis

         E85 = 83,263 BTUs
         Gasoline = 114,000 BTUs
         # 2 diesel = 129,000 BTUs
Cost of E85

Yes! A lower energy content results in lower
mileage. Gasoline vehicles don’t travel as far as the
same diesel powered vehicles.

Hence, gasoline is generally cheaper than diesel.

It follows, that
E85 MUST be cheaper than
unleaded gasoline.
