D1 Partner J&H Oil Company recently opened two bulk DEF lanes at their popular truck stop in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Air1® is now available on these fuel islands dispensed from a 2,000 gallon above ground tank hooked up to Gilbarco dispensing systems installed next to the existing diesel pumps (as seen below). J&H Oil Company plans on refilling their facility with their 2,400 gallon bulk DEF delivery truck. Considering the winter weather climate in Michigan can be extreme, J&H and has taken precautionary measures to prevent any freezing of the Air1® at the pump by using a heated piping system. J&H's station resides at a busy intersection (U.S. 131 and 76th Street) and moves approximately 4.2 million gallons of diesel a year and anticipates selling at least 10,000 gallons of Air1® in 2012. The truck stop also offers retail packaged Air1® options for customer convenience.
“J&H Oil Company takes pride in meeting all of our customer’s needs with competitive pricing of only high quality products. Offering Air1® at this particular station will not only grow our retail business, but the experience will help us in our development of additional DEF retail applications in the near future,” states Dan DeHaan, Warehouse Operations, J&H Oil Company.
