UPI Energy LP Launches E85

GUELPH, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 31, 2007) - The environmentally friendliest gasoline possible, E85, is now available to motorists in the Guelph area, following the launch by UPI Energy LP at their gas bar on Wellington Road 124.

E85 is a premium quality, high octane, gasoline, which contains up to 85% ethanol and UPI's high quality unleaded gasoline. The resulting blend offers the highest octane available in Ontario. And, like all of UPI's ethanol-blended gasolines, it's made from ethanol produced right here in Ontario, which means a boost to Ontario's economy, and another market for corn growers. The environmental footprint left from E85 is the least significant possible for any gasoline product. E85 benefits the environment by lowering vehicle carbon monoxide emissions, generating less carbon dioxide discharge, and releasing fewer volatile organic compounds and particulate matter than either 10% ethanol-blended or conventional gasolines.

"It simply makes sense to bring a product that helps eliminate some of the leading contributors to climate change into the rural market. After all, rural Ontario, with it's crops and farms, relies more on a predictable, constant climate than the large urban centres", says Robert P. Sicard, UPI Energy LP's President and CEO.

UPI is a forerunner in the marketplace, with innovative, environmentally friendlier fuels. UPI was the first fuel supplier to offer ethanol-blended gasolines to both the farm and motorists across Ontario in 1993. They followed up that success with the launch of Biodiesel in 2003, and now with E85, they are further expanding into the renewable fuels market.
