In what may well be a U.S. first, the Kwik Trip chain of convenience stores is opening a multifaceted alternative fuel station in La Crosse, Wisc. today, April 10.
The facility will offer CNG, LNG, LPG-propane autogas, E85-ethanol, B5 and B20 biodiesel – and at-the-dispenser DEF fluid for diesel trucks with SCR (selective catalytic reduction). A grand opening is slated for May 10.
The firm will open a second location in La Crosse, offering compressed natural gas fueling at a Kwik Trip retail store, early in May.
Another will open in Sturtevant, Wisc., also in May, and a third in Rochester, Minn. in the fall.
They are the first of Kwik Trip’s planned network of 20 to 30 retail CNG sales outlets in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa to open in the next two to three years.
Family-owned Kwik Trip, founded in 1965, has more than 350 Kwik Trip, Kwik Star, Hearty Platter and Tobacco Outlet Plus stores in the three states.
