Muncie, Ind. residents and travelers will now have a new option for refueling their vehicles with premium-quality CountryMark gasoline and diesel fuel at a new retail fuel station at 11546 S. U.S. Hwy. 35.
The site features a convenience store with seating and hot food as well as 24/7 access to CountryMark premium gasoline and diesel fuel. Specific fuel products offered include Premium Dieselex-4, CountryMark 87 PLUS and CountryMark 93 PLUS. Premium Dieselex-4 is CountryMark’s 50-cetane premium diesel fuel. CountryMark 87 PLUS is TOP TIER certified gasoline and comes with a 10-percent ethanol blend. CountryMark 93 PLUS is TOP TIER certified gasoline with a 10-percent ethanol blend that is ideal for larger engines and high performance vehicles.
The CountryMark fuel at this new retail site is being supplied by AgBest, a farmer-owned cooperative headquartered in Muncie. AgBest currently supplies four CountryMark fuel stations.
According to Steve Prible, petroleum department manager for AgBest, this station has been well-received in the local community.
“We are thrilled to help open this site and provide high-quality CountryMark fuel to area travelers,” said Prible. “The station on U.S. 35 is an excellent and convenient location for Muncie drivers traveling the area looking to refuel their vehicles with high quality gasoline or diesel fuel.”
CountryMark’s line of premium liquid fuels begins with light, sweet American crude oil brought in from Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky. It is refined to the highest specifications at the CountryMark refinery in Mt. Vernon, Ind. Fuel quality and integrity is further protected in distribution, as CountryMark owns its own pipeline distribution system.
CountryMark supplies fuels and lubricants to member cooperatives throughout the Midwest, which then supply energy products to 100-plus CountryMark branded retail fuel stations and 200-plus delivery routes.
“As a farmer-owned oil company, I think we approach fuel quality in a different way,” said CountryMark Retail Manager Gary Barrett. “We produce the quality of fuels that our farmer owners want to use in their own vehicles. Our premium diesel fuels are the only fuels in our marketplace that are consistently a 50-cetane product, which provides all of our diesel customers with more power, performance and reliability than they can get from comparable diesel products.”
Barrett went on to note that CountryMark PLUS gasoline has earned TOP TIER certification.
“Only 30 gasoline retailers in the nation have achieved this quality level,” said Barrett. “Seven of the largest automotive manufacturers in the world recommend TOP TIER gasoline because of what this level of fuel quality does for gasoline engine performance and engine life. That’s the quality of fuel our customers expect from CountryMark, and that is the quality of fuel we provide.”
