FUELING YOUR SUCCESS

Want a more efficient fleet? Put a better diesel fuel in the tank.
 
Now is the perfect time to make the switch to Cenex® Premium Diesel Fuels. They’ve been enhanced to support today’s diesel equipment technologies and ensure consistent performance in all engines, both on and off the road. Newer engines operate under high temperatures and pressures that can literally “cook” typical #2 diesel, resulting in fouled fuel that can damage engine parts.
 
Cenex Premium Diesel Fuels help prevent these problems.  Plus, they’re formulated to optimize performance with a complete, quality, balanced additive package that:
 
Improves fuel economy by as much as 5 percent*
Increases power by up to 4.5 percent*
Boosts fuel lubricity 10-15 percent*
Lowers maintenance costs*
Extends life of injectors/injector pumps*
Has a typical cetane number of 48
*Versus typical #2 diesel fuel

THE FUTURE OF DIESEL

Here at United Farmers Cooperative we strive to do the best we can for our farmers. One way we do this is by using and promoting the use of Biodiesel. In 2015, with the construction and opening of the 24-hour fuel pumps in front of our location in Mt Ayr, we installed two blend pumps, which made Biodiesel available to that area. At the fuel pumps in Mt Ayr, not only is Biodiesel blends of B5/#2, B11, B20, B30, and B99 available, but there is also Ethanol blends available as well.
 
Biodiesel has reduced our dependence on foreign oil and created thousands of jobs on our home soil, which makes it such a key product for Americans to use and support. Not only is it beneficial for your fuel mileage and cheaper to fuel with, but Biodiesel is made using the products that our Iowa farmers produce. Actually, Iowa is the leading producer of Biodiesel!

This fuel is mainly made up of resources including soybean oil and recycled cooking oil. Improvements in the specifications and attention to fuel quality over the last 10 years have virtually eliminated the issues some may have seen in the past with B20, even in the winter.
 
Biodiesel can be used in various diesel engines, see the table below to see how much you can utilize this game changing product!
