By | July 08, 2009
Griffin U-Gas in Davies, Fla., became the 2,000th E85 station to open in the U.S. The gas station, located north of Miami, celebrated its grand opening on May 28. The Griffin U-Gas station is one of 12 new E85 stations that have been built in Florida over the past several months. U-Gas owns all of the current E85 stations in Florida. "For me personally, it feels really good when I fuel up to know that I'm not sending money to countries that are not that friendly to us," said Willie Urbieta, president of U-Gas. To celebrate the 2,000th E85 station opening, U-Gas' 12 Florida stations offered E85 at a discounted price.
