What does the word Spinx mean?
Spinx is a little bit of wordplay - founded by Stewart Spinks in 1972, Spinx and Spinks sound the same, but the original logo included an Egyptian Sphinx. Spinx means fast, friendly service, quality products, and offers that make life easier.
Where does Spinx get its gas?
Spinx purchases only high quality fuel products from reputable refiners at terminals located in the southeast and delivers daily to over 100 locations in North and South Carolina and Georgia.
What is your operating area?
Currently Spinx operates more than 65 stores in South Carolina and North Carolina.
What is Biodiesel and does Spinx sell it at every store?
Biodiesel is a clean burning alternative fuel produced from domestic, renewable resources. Biodiesel contains no petroleum but it can be blended at any level with petroleum diesel to create a biodiesel blend. It can be used in compression-ignition (diesel) engines with little or no modifications. Biodiesel is simple to use, biodegradable, nontoxic, and essentially free of sulfur and aromatics.
Use of Biodiesel reduces the dependency on foreign petroleum products and increases jobs for farmers, transporters, engineers, manufacturers and others right here at home. It is also a greener fuel that produces fewer emissions and less pollution. Spinx sells biodiesel at over 40 locations and is currently the nation’s leading retailer of biodiesel.
What is E-85 and does Spinx sell it at every store?
E-85 is an alcohol fuel mixture that typically contains a mixture of up to 85% fuel ethanol and gasoline. Use of E-85 results in reductions of greenhouse gas emissions and energy use for each gallon burned. E-85 as a fuel is becoming increasingly common in the United States, mainly in the Midwest where corn is a major crop and is the primary source material for ethanol fuel production. E-85 should only be used in approved FlexFuel Vehicles. Ethanol is a cleaning agent and dealers recommend the fuel filter be changed when you transition a flex-fuel vehicle from gas to E85.
Spinx has made a commitment to the community to sell E-85 at a lower price than Unleaded Gas. Currently over 20 Spinx locations offer E-85 which makes it the largest E-85 retailer in the Southeast.
How can I tell if my car can run on E85?
You can visit the National Ethanol Vehicle Coalition Website to check on whether your vehicle can burn E85 and also how to convert an engine to accept E85.
