FUEL & LUBRICANTS

Farming and other commercial businesses require a steady, dependable supply of diesel fuel and gasoline

Why buy fuel from a cooperative?

Cooperatives sell energy for the same reasons they sell feed, seed and fertilizer: to ensure their members have access to the inputs and services they need to run their businesses. United Cooperative purchases propane, diesel fuel, gasoline and lubricants from Cenex, which is itself part of a farmer-owned cooperative with its own refineries in Kansas and Montana.

The ability to refine petroleum is a huge advantage for Cenex and for our member-owners. It helps ensure a steady, dependable supply of fuel for our customers regardless of geopolitical events or product shortages. Fuel and propane purchases are also eligible for patronage, or return of capital to our members.





Refined Fuels

Whether filling your farm equipment with Cenex premium ag diesel fuels from your on-farm tank, or your car with Cenex® TOP TIER™ Detergent Gasoline at one of our convenience stores, United Cooperative offers premium Cenex fuels and lubricants to power your large and small vehicles.

Cenex® Premium Diesel Fuels have been enhanced to support today’s diesel equipment technologies and ensure consistent performance in all engines, both on and off the road.
