Irving Oil announced
this week that its travel plaza in St. Liboire, Quebec, is now
equipped to dispense DEF at the fuel island. Irving Oil has become
one of just two retailers supplying DEF at the fuel island in
Canada. Previously, the only company to provide this was major
truck stop chain Pilot Flying
J, which operates six stores dispensing DEF at the pump,
including one in Quebec.
The St. Liboire location is located at exit 145 of Trans-Canada
Highway 20. Combination pumps, located on three diesel fueling
lanes, use Gilbarco
technology to dispense diesel and DEF simultaneously. The price of
DEF at this location is CAD$0.799/litre.
General Manager of Irving Oil Marketing Harry Hadiaris said: "We
are excited to offer DEF dispenser access at three of our St.
Liboire diesel fuelling lanes," adding that this would "eliminate
the hassle" of repositioning the truck or using jugs.
Irving Oil was founded in 1924 and has 900 service stations and
travel plazas in New England and eastern Canada. In the U.S.,
Irving Oil operates Maine's only DEF pump.
DEF Tracker reports the average DEF pump price for Canada at
CAD$0.799/litre, or US$3.06/U.S. gallon.
