Slight correction needed in database- 

 

For the SPEEDWAY station located at: 

 

1425 W. Market Street, Troy, Ohio- 

 

The map database is showing the wrong location.   


The correct location is about 1/8 mile WEST of  I-75, on Market Street, at the intersection of BARNHART street. 

 

 

The map is now showing it in the wrong location. 

 

 

thanks

Looks like Batavia, IL will be getting a new Speedway Cafe, right near one of the entrances to Fermi National Accellerator Laboratory at the Northeast corner of Kirk Rd. And Wilson St. I ran across it by accident tonight around 10:45pm and the construction is just barely under way at this point.

BTW, for those who aren't familiar, with Fermilab, here's a link.

Drove by this new station today after getting the oil in my 200 changed, looks like they're going to have diesel pumps for semis and possibly even Urea pumps by those, and it appeared that all of the gasoline pumps were also E85 pumps too!  Hopefully it will be open for business within the next month so I can get a real address and some idea as to how it looks.

Seriously? 4 total fueling positions for E85 at that station? I'd really like to see a picture of this one.

 

 

I'd be happier when the station returns to the list of active one's so I can report their $1.769 E85 prices since 12/19/2015.

 

The fueling positions are not that exciting. There are two islands that have E85 pumps available at lanes on either side. But they are combined with regular product, so one cannot use the pump while someone else is pumping gas and the E85 hose is unused.

 

BTW, the Speedway IOS app indicates that it retained it 885 E. Touhy Ave. address.

The Des Plaines, IL Speedway has reopened. The former address was 885 E. Touhy. Since the store has been reconstructed on two consolidated lots, I can't say whether it has retained the old address.
Anyway, it now has two E85 pumps, under the canopy, accessible by four vehicles simultaneously and E85 prices are now prominently listed on marquis on each side of the lot.
