Cenex® Gasoline


 

CPI offers high quality Cenex® gasoline to its customers at 21 fueling locations throughout central Nebraska, where we sell Cenex® TOP TIER™ Detergent Gasoline and Cenex diesel fuel. Being branded Cenex is advantageous to both CPI and the customer. Cenex is a cooperative just like CPI and buying from a fellow coop only strengthens the system that helps support ag communities.

Cenex also owns two refineries – one in Kansas and one in Montana. Both of these refineries exclusively use North American-sourced crude oil. Supporting North America, supporting agriculture and supporting you is what CPI does every day.

Cenex® Premium Diesel



 

If you’ve been using standard diesel for years, you may be skeptical about whether “premium” fuels are worth the added cost. But consider this: over time, your engine’s fuel pump and injectors get dirty; a gradual, hard-to-notice process that reduces both engine performance and fuel economy. Standard diesel fuel contains no additives to reduce wear, extend storage life or reduce the formation of gum, varnish and corrosion.

At CPI we recommend Cenex® Premium Diesel Fuels. They’re specially formulated to clean your fuel system and keep it clean for maximum power and performance. A clean fuel system provides many benefits, including improved fuel economy, better horsepower and extended life of fuel pumps and injectors. Cenex Premium Diesel Fuels also deliver additional benefits, including better lubricity (to protect vital engine parts), quicker starts and reduced emissions for cleaner air.

Recently, Cenex Premium Diesels were enhanced to further optimize performance in modernized diesel engines. They now have a special additive to help prevent typical problems related to #2 diesel use, including injector damage, filter clogging, power loss, poor starting, engine failures and costly repairs. Compared to standard diesel, Cenex Premium Diesel Fuels:

  • Improve fuel economy by as much as 5%
  • Improve fuel lubricity by 10-15%
  • Improve power by as much as 4.5%
  • Have a higher cetane number (typically 48)
  • Extend the life of injectors and injector pumps
  • Reduce maintenance costs
  • Operate better in modernized diesel engines
  • Promote quicker, more fuel-efficient starts
  • Reduce smoke and emissions for cleaner air

Plus, Cenex® Ruby Fieldmaster® is backed by an ironclad guarantee – the Total Protection Plan Warranty. If you’re using Ruby Fieldmaster and Cenex lubricants and anything goes wrong with your new or used agricultural equipment, parts covered by the warranty will be replaced free of charge. That’s an offer you won’t find with any other diesel fuel. (Visit cenex.com/ttp for more information or to enroll.) For true premium performance from a proven diesel fuel, trust Cenex Premium Diesel Fuels. To learn more, visit www.cenex.com/rubyfieldmaster.

Soy Gold® Biodiesel



SoyGold® Biodiesel – the most trusted name in biofuels – offers dependability you must have with no engine retrofit. You burn SoyGold biodiesel the same way you use regular diesel, but without all the noxious smoke. From a 2% to a 20% blend, SoyGold biodiesel gives you clean power from a renewable resource – soybeans – and the cost to you is the lowest it has ever been. It’s a “green fuel” that lets you keep another kind of green in your pocket. Made from American-grown soybeans, SoyGold biodiesel is the country’s most popular renewable fuel. Available year round, SoyGold increases fuel lubricity, boosts cetane values and burns cleaner than traditional diesel fuels.

CPI proudly markets SoyGold to our producers at any blend desired. Call your local CPI Energy Representative at 402-751-2922 to place an order today.

Fuel Contracting Programs

Contracts are available at any time and programs are intended to benefit both the customer and CPI. Contact one of our sales specialists today at 402-751-2922 and ask them to work a schedule that will get you the best value.

CPI customers are responsible to take delivery of the entire amount of contracted gallons at agreed set price during agreed time frame. Failure to take any contract gallons may result in additional fees. Payment for Max Price Options and Full Prepaid Contracts is required at the time of contract agreement and signing. Full Prepaid contracts are priced .05 cents lower than Signature Contracts.

Click on the items below to learn more about our contract options.

1. Fixed Price Contract

available every day the NYMEX is trading. Just as the name indicates, this is a fixed price for a product to be delivered during an agreed time frame.

2. Max Price Options

can be added to any Fixed Price Contract at time of origination for an additional fee that is required to cover hedging fees. The Max Price Option will allow your Fixed Price Contract to be re-priced to CPI daily posted tank wagon delivered price for the same product when lower and will never be priced higher than the original contracted price.

3. Time Frame

select any single month or group of 3 months by quarter; Spring (March, April, May), Summer (June, July, August), Fall (September, October, November) and Winter (December, January, February). CPI will lock in your fuel needs any time into the future that is available from our suppliers for physical product to be delivered to your tank.

As a leading propane provider in South Central Nebraska, you can count on CPI’s timely LP delivery service to keep your home warm in the winter and outdoor activities fueled in the summer. We also offer complete propane delivery, sales and service for our commercial and agriculture customers.

For Propane Service, Please Call: 402-751-2922

Propane Contracting Programs

CPI offers five different options for propane to heat your home. Traditionally we try to get home heat propane contracting done in the early summer. Contracts are available any time.

You must accept the propane up to the amount of your contract, be on a keep full basis route delivery and remain current on your account to participate in any of our programs. If your account becomes past due, you will be delivered propane on a cash only basis. None of our programs have any surcharge fees of any kind attached to them.

Click on the items below to learn more about our contract options.

1. Fixed Price 100% Pre-Pay

This contract requires full payment at the time of signing and locks in the committed gallons at a fixed price per gallon for propane delivered through the winter. Sales tax will be billed at time of delivery. Please include a check for the prepay amount with the signed agreement. Sales tax is not included.

2. Consumer Price Protection Contract

The most you would pay for the propane on this plan is the contract price. If the price of propane decreases and we are delivering for a price less than the contract price, you will be billed the lower price at the time of delivery. You must pay a Non-refundable Option Fee of 15 cents per gallon when you return the contract that will protect any future downward movement. You will be billed the lower of the contract price or the current delivered price (plus tax) for home heat propane delivered through the winter. You must include a check for the Option Fee amount with the signed agreement.

3. Signature Fixed Price Contract

This contract does not require any payment at this time. The signature fixed price contract maintains the same price for propane delivered through the winter. You will be billed for delivered gallons at the contracted price, plus tax.

4. Monthly Budget Billing Program

This contract spreads your payments into 10 equal payments, one per month, with May being the settlement month. You will receive a monthly billing of your budget payment amount due on your statement through the contract period. The settlement in May will either return your overpayment (if the price drops), or charge you for underpayment (if you use more than contracted). The price for budget billing is capped plus sales tax. If the delivered price is less than the contract price, you will be billed at the lower price when we settle up in May. Your price will never exceed the contract price, and if propane prices are lower, you will be credited that amount when we settle up by May (June statement). You must pay a Non-refundable Option Fee of 15 cents per gallon when you return this contract that will protect any future downward movement. Your monthly payment amount will be calculated by dividing the total dollar amount by the number of months from return date of contract until reconciliation in May. If you choose this option, you will receive a monthly statement with your payment amount.

5. Keep Full Route Service

Your propane will be delivered at the prevailing “Keep Full Route Service” price at time of delivery. Your service person will keep your tank full during the winter heating season. You will be responsible for payment in full monthly.
