ECI Energy update

ECI’s Energy Division has had a few busy months & I would like to update our customers and owners about the changes.


You – our customer/owners – have requested more fuel sourcing/pricing options and we have listened! ECI now offers more than 1 supplier of refined fuels and propane. For our customers who wish to continue to receive premium diesel, we now offer ECI brand diesel.  We currently have FIELDPOWER, dyed diesel and ROADPOWER, clear road diesel.  We now have several different suppliers to source your fuel needs and give our customers the best prices on fuels.


The Hudson Cardtrol location has been updated with new signs, the La Porte City and Dysart locations are scheduled to receive a facelift in the very near future. These facilities will now operate under the ECI brand. As always, these facilities are open to the public and accept all major credit cards as well as ECI fuel cards. If you use an ECI fuel card, you receive a 2¢ per gallon discount right at the pump. Along with the exterior changes, the computer software and hardware will also be updated soon. These updates will provide the best data security available to us and will protect all our customers personal information.


After extensive market analysis, ECI has booked & contracted a large majority of our customer’s projected fuel and propane needs for this upcoming fall harvest and drying season. With the recent rise in fuel prices we are confident we will be able to offer our customer/owners a very competitive price.


As part of our ongoing efforts to continually improve service to our customers, every driver in the Energy Division will have a fuel price list available to share with our customers. Additionally, every Sales and Customer Service person within ECI will also have fuel pricing information available.  


If you wish to start looking at your options for your upcoming fuel needs, please contact us.
