Kroger To Roll Out Ethanol-based Fuel

Houston, The Kroger Co. is scheduled to open the first fuel station in Houston to offer ethanol-based E85 fuel as an environmentally-conscious alternative fuel on Monday, according to a report in The Houston Business Journal. The station is the first of 18 planned Kroger fuel stations that will offer the fuel throughout Dallas and Houston.

The addition of E85 fuel pumps at Kroger gas stations is being done in collaboration with the state of Texas, General Motors Corp. and Abengoa BioEnergy.
