Passing through Boilermaker country? Travelers to the home county of the Purdue University Boilermakers can now fuel up at a new CountryMark fuel station featuring premium-quality gasoline and diesel fuel at 7420 Old State Road 25 north of Lafayette.
The site features a convenience store 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 a 93 octane fuel, TOP TIER certified and contains a 10-percent ethanol blend. This premium fuel is ideal for any car that requires high octane fuel.
The CountryMark fuel at this new retail site is being supplied by Ceres Solutions, a farmer-owned cooperative headquartered in Crawfordsville. Ceres currently supplies eight CountryMark fuel stations in Indiana.
According to Patty Denman, energy manager for Ceres, this is the first CountryMark station in the Tippecanoe County area and “we hope it is the first of many to come.” 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.
“This is a great opportunity for area residents who may not otherwise have access to our outstanding CountryMark fuel products to burn a premium quality fuel in their vehicles,” she added. “We are excited to open this new station in northern Tippecanoe County and have the chance to serve a small, rural community as well.”
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.
“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 and that residents in rural communities can find value in. 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.”
