We sure are good luck to our customers! Tim Schnagl won a $10,000 cash prize playing the Lottery’s 25th Anniversary $20 Game Book instant scratch game!


“I buy two of the Game Book tickets every day,” said Tim. “I buy one before work and one after work.”


The 25th Anniversary Game Book offers players nine different puzzle games, all in one book. Keeping with his routine, Tim stopped at a convenience store while on his way home from work Saturday to pick up his favorite game.

The Schnagls, who have been married 30 years, have two children and three grandchildren. They were undecided how they would spend their winnings this time around, but said it would be put to good use.


Tim’s winning ticket was purchased at Zarco USA, located at 518 E. Logan in Ottawa.

KC Star Op Ed from Zarco 66 Owner, Scott Zaremba

E15 ethanol blend adds another fuel option for drivers


Since its founding, America has long believed that its citizens should be free to make very basic choices for themselves. Americans can choose to practice any religion they like, or to not practice any at all. They can choose to vote for one candidate over another, or for no candidate at all. Americans are also free to make the most basic of choices — chocolate or vanilla — or not.


Yet when it comes to how we fuel our vehicles and our economy, that choice has largely been taken from us. Oil-derived fuels dominate the marketplace. Oil-based gasoline monopolizes 90 percent of the nation’s fuel market today.


Just because this is the way it has always been is not a reason to accept it as the only way to do it….

6 News: Lawrence Gas Station First in the Country to Offer E15 Fuel

Watch video here>>


Lawrence – Drivers looking for a more eco-friendly way to fill up their gas tank got another option at the pump last week. The Zarco USA station located at East 23rd Street now offers e15.


The fuel is a mixture of 85 percent gasonline and 15 percent corn ethanol.


Zarco USA owner Scott Zaremba says the new fuel is a another step towards ending the country’s dependency on foreign oil. He also says producing the bio-fuel is helping the Kansas economy.

NY Times Article featuring Zarco 66: In Kansas, Stronger Mix of Ethanol

Intended as an additive to gasoline, ethanol in modern times was meant to stretch America’s fuel supplies, much as a cook uses chicken stock to increase the volume of a soup. By federal mandate, ethanol makes up about 10 percent of most fuel that motorists buy at the pump.


Unfortunately for ethanol makers, Americans are driving fewer miles and upgrading to more efficient cars — or to continue the analogy, eating less soup.


So ethanol makers want to change the longstanding recipe, trying to persuade gas stations and motorists to buy fuel that is 15 percent ethanol, or E15. And here, between a transmission shop and a Western clothing retailer, the first service station in the nation to offer the new blend for regular cars has just begun sales.


“I’m a firm believer that we have to do something. You can’t just sit there,” said Scott Zaremba, owner of the Phillips 66station, which has 14 gas pumps and four for diesel that mix in soy biodiesel with the petroleum variety. “Being in the Midwest, offering renewables from ethanol and biodiesel fuel are just a natural fit for us.” Continue reading on>>

Zarco 66 makes history-Sells first gallons of E15 in the USA

From “More than 18 months after the Environmental Protection Agency first approved the idea, a gas station west of Kansas City has begun selling E15, a fuel blend that is 15 percent ethanol instead of the 10 percent blend that is now standard in most of the country.

The Phillips 66 brand station on Route 10 in Lawrence, Kan., uses “blender pumps” that allow the customer to choose a gasoline-ethanol mix that is 10 percent, 15 percent, 30 percent or 85 percent ethanol. Technically, the 15 percent blend was already available to drivers of “flex fuel” cars that can burn mixtures of up to 85 percent, but that is a tiny slice of the automotive fleet. The Kansas station is the first to offer E15 for regular cars.”  Continue reading at>>
