IT’S WITH GREAT SADNESS THAT WE MUST SHUT DOWN OUR BELOVED LITTLE STATION. WE HAD BIG DREAMS OF BRINGING E85 TO THE MASSES AND AGAINST ALL ODDS WE TURNED OUR DREAMS INTO REALITY.$UNFORTUNATELY$WE’VE BEEN$DEALT AN$ENORMOUS FINANCIAL SETBACK AND THEREFORE CAN NO LONGER CONTINUE OPERATION AS OF SUNDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 2, 2016.

WE WANTED TO THANK EVERYONE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD FOR YOUR LOVE, SUPPORT AND PATRONAGE OVER THE PAST TWO YEARS. YOU HAVE ALL BECOME LIKE FAMILY TO US AND WISH YOU ALL THE BEST! AND A SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR STAFF AND ALSO CYPRESS MARKET AND GUFF FOR ALL OF YOUR HELP.

LASTLY, WE WANTED TO THANK THE BC MINISTRY OF ENERGY FOR SUPPORTING US IN OUR ENDEAVOUR. BREAKING GROUND BY BEING THE FIRST E85 STATION IN BRITISH COLUMBIA WOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED HAD OUR PROVINCE NOT BEEN DRIVEN TO BE A LEADER IN THE GREEN MOVEMENT

THIS STATION WAS NEVER INTENDED TO MAKE ANYONE RICH, BUT RATHER, WE WANTED TO SHOW EVERYONE THAT IT IS POSSIBLE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE EVEN IF IN A SMALL WAY.$ WE REALLY HOPE THAT OTHER STATIONS AND FUEL PRODUCERS SEE THE BENEFITS OF SUSTAINABLE, RENEWABLE, EARTH FRIENDLY FUELS AND WHAT IT MEANS TO OUR FUTURE. WHILE OUR LITTLE$STATION$CEASES TO EXIST, OUR HOPES AND ASPIRATIONS OF AN ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS WORLD WILL NEVER DIE.


THANK YOU,
ARCADE STATION PARTNERS

Damn... sucks to hear that you guys are ceasing operations...

If you don't mind sharing a bit of where the financial setback is coming from, I would certainly appreciate it. Of course, if you view that as proprietary business info, I'd 100% understand that as well.

Good luck to your future endeavours.

I take it the setbacks are due to the site needing dispenser and tank upgrades?

can't disclose quite yet. our biggest concern, of course after looking after the staff we just laid off, is arranging to have another station carry on selling E85.

Just came back to bump this when I saw the news on FB. Looks like the owner already did.

Sometimes being right all the time is a curse...

Seriously though, jokes aside, I laughed in the beginning, then you got it setup and while I had no reason to run the stuff, I know buddies who were thankful to have your station there for when they needed their fuel fix. Sad to see it go down this way.

Quick question did you own the property or where you leasing? You can P.M. me if you don't want it public.

Feel bad for all the guys running on ethanol.
Car is going to feel so weak when they go back to 94 or whatever.

We have started a new Facebook group at the link below in support of E85 fuel in British Columbia. If you are a supporter, consumer, or lover of our cause, please spread the word and add yourself and anyone else you know that does.
