Growth Energy Partners with Sharber Oil Company to Offer High Level Blends of Ethanol in Georgia

WASHINGTON, DC — Growth Energy has joined forces with Sharber Oil Company to introduce higher level blends of ethanol in the state of Georgia. Sharber Oil Company is located at 250 Whigham Dairy Road in Bainbridge and has opened an E85 pump with assistance from Growth Energy’s 2010 E85 and Blender Pump Program.

“It’s exciting to see more retailers across the country install high level ethanol fueling equipment that will provide flex fuel vehicle owners greater access to E85 fuel,” said Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis. “We commend Sharber Oil Company for their efforts and are pleased to assist them in adding this fueling facility.”

Greg Waddell, General Manager of Sharber Oil Company said, “Growth Energy has been an excellent group to work with. They helped us provide a product that we believe will be the future of automotive alternative fuel.”
