SmartStation® is a trademark of Smart Station Ventures LLC which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Badger State Ethanol. It was founded in 2005 with the intention of making locally produced ethanol available directly to consumers through the use of Flex-fuel pumps. BSE was fully 2-3 years ahead of anyone else with the concept of blending at the pump. The system utilizes two in-ground tanks, one with ethanol and one with gasoline. The stations are open 24/7 and there is no attendant. Customers can use major credit cards or our own Smart Card. Current blends in Monroe are 10%, 15%, 25%, 35% and 85%. With the advent of blender pumps offering 10% or 15% on one hose (black) and 25%, 35% and 85% on the yellow hose (flex fuel vehicles only), Smart Station - Monroe has upgraded to the newer Flex-fuel pumps.
