CHS Cenex Top Tier gasoline

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Cenex Top Tier Detergent Gasoline is now available at all 1,450 Cenex gas stations across 19 states.

Cenex Top Tier Detergent Gasoline, recommended by seven of the world’s top automakers, goes beyond U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) minimum detergent requirements, containing a premium additive package that exceeds industry standards for improved fuel efficiency and engine performance.

“Today’s more fuel-efficient engines require higher-quality fuel to operate at peak performance,” said Akhtar Hussain, CHS refined fuels brand marketing manager. “Cenex Top Tier Detergent Gasoline is blended with an improved detergent package that reduces harmful engine deposits and helps clean an engine as it runs.

With a cleaning additive package that exceeds industry standards, Cenex Top Tier Detergent Gasoline is proven to reduce metallic deposits on engine intake valves, fuel injectors and combustion chambers and prevent intake valves from sticking. The detergent additive package is blended into every gallon of Cenex-brand gasoline, across all octane levels, so drivers will receive better performance from every tank.

CHS will launch a marketing campaign to educate consumers about the benefits of Cenex Top Tier Detergent Gasoline and the role it plays in improving performance and extending vehicle life. Cenex retailers will receive additional marketing tools, including a new pump design, which the company will implement at all locations in 2016.

“Cenex customers, especially those living in rural America, depend on their vehicles as a part of their daily lives,” Hussain said. “With the transition to Cenex Top Tier Detergent Gasoline, Cenex retailers are helping their customers’ vehicles run cleaner for longer. We see this investment as another way to provide our Cenex retailers with the highest-quality products that meet the evolving needs of their customers.”
