These dispensers give the retailer the ultimate flexibility to offer fuel varieties and minimize the amount of piping changes in the ground.

WHEN WILL THE NF SERIES BE AVAILABLE FOR ORDER?
The NF series will be available to order through Experlogics in February 2019.
WHY SHOULD I HAVE CONFIDENCE IN THIS NEW BLENDER?
The NF series has been in the field for over a year with octane and ethanol tests from each of the sites. Key customers have partnered with Gilbarco to test these at high volume sites.
WHEN WILL THE NF SERIES BE AVAILABLE IN CANADA?
Current Canadian regulations do not allow for blending of ethanol fuels. Gilbarco will continue to monitor the market conditions to make these models available if the regulations change.
HOW DO I ENSURE MY TECHNICIANS ARE TRAINED FOR THIS NEW MODEL?
The Encore dispenser training modules have been updated for the NF series blending methodology. Please participate in these training modules to stay current.
HOW WILL ORDERING THE NF SERIES BE DIFFERENT THAN TRADITIONAL BLENDERS?
The NF series allows for multiple inlets to be blended for any hose on the dispenser. Be sure to review your local requirements for dispensing different ethanol content from the same hose. Also, be aware of the Flex Fuel inlet location for these blends. Appropriate hanging hardware for these models should be considered
