GREENSBORO, N.C. – March 14, 2011 – Underwriters Laboratories has approved three models of Gasboy® Atlas® dispensers for use with fuels containing up to 85% ethanol (E85).
The Gasboy Atlas E85 dispensers (model 9872KX series) join the current Atlas electronic fleet dispenser models that are specifically designed for commercial fleet fueling applications. They are fully compatible with existing fleet management systems and Island Fleet Card Readers, including the Gasboy Islander™ PLUS and CFN III systems.
“We understand the tough demands of unattended fueling at the fleet fueling site,” said Sanjay Chowbey, vice president of Gilbarco Veeder-Root’s Commercial Business Unit. “We build the industry’s most reliable, rugged dispensers so fleet operators have the lowest possible cost of ownership for the long term. These dispensers may also qualify for various tax and grant incentive programs around the country designed to build infrastructure for flexible fuel vehicles.”
The Gasboy Atlas E85 dispensers for fleet fueling applications are also NTEP certified and join Gilbarco Veeder-Root’s other 22 Encore® S and Encore 300 retail dispenser configurations that were previously approved for use with fuels up to E85.
The company will exhibit Gasboy products at the NAFA Fleet Management Association Institute and Expo, April 9-12 at the Charlotte Convention Center, Charlotte, N.C.
