Coles Energy, operator of Mickey Mart, recently began switching many of its nearly 30 locations in north-central Ohio from BP stations to Shell stations, the Port Clinton News Herald reported.
“It’s definitely good news for customers,” said Jason Appel, the man in charge of vendor relations with Coles Energy Inc./Mickey Mart. He added that Shell’s reputation for clean fuel is well known, and especially popular with customers who work in agriculture.
“Farmers really like Shell fuel,” Appel said. “They say it runs their tractors and machinery well.”
Appel said the company made the switch because Shell offered more customer service benefits and a number of technological advantages compared to BP.
“They had a lot of technology that makes it easier for us,” Appel said.
