“We’ve been part of the Utica community for many years,” said Bill Englefield, IV, co-president of Englefield Oil Co. “I actually worked as a gas station attendant at the original store on the corner, so I have a lot of memories there and hold that location near to my heart. We are proud to continue to be a part of the Utica community.”
The newly built Utica Duchess features 16 fueling stations offering No Lead, Mid Grade, Premium and Diesel high performance BP Fuels. The site also features E-85 as a fuel alternative.

We are so thankful to the members of this community for their patronage over the years!”
