Salem is home to the newest CountryMark fuel station
Washington County, Indiana, has its first CountryMark-branded retail fuel station. The site opened earlier this month at 5155 East State Road 56 in Salem. The station features a convenience store, which goes by the name of Morgan’s Market. This fuel station offers 24/7 access to CountryMark premium gasoline and diesel fuel. Specific fuel products offered at this site include Premium Diesel-R, CountryMark’s premium on-road diesel fuel; Super Dieselex-4, CountryMark’s premium off-road diesel fuel; as well as CountryMark 87-octane PLUS TOP TIER gasoline and CountryMark 93-octane PLUS TOP TIER gasoline.
The CountryMark fuel at this new retail site is being supplied by SynEnergy Partners LLC, which is a farmer-owned cooperative with headquarters in Mt. Vernon, Indiana.
“We’re proud to have opened the only CountryMark retail location in the county,” said Tom Flora, SynEnergy east division manager. “The station is very clean, easy to get to, and can accommodate commercial trucks.”
CountryMark is also a farmer-owned cooperative. With headquarters in Indianapolis, CountryMark, is in the oil exploration, production, refining and marketing business. 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.”
