➤ HUSKY 5885 P/V VENTS EARN CALIFORNIA
APPROVAL FOR E;85 FUELS
Husky Corp.’s 5885 Pressure/Vacuum (P/V) Vent
recently received approval from the California Air
Resources Board (CARB) for use in the storage of E85,
high-level ethanol-gasoline blends containing 51% to 83%
ethanol, which can be used in ;exible fuel vehicles (FFV)
as an alternative to gasoline.
The 5885 Pressure/Vacuum (P/V) Vent is designated in
CARB Executive Orders VR-101-R and VR-102-S as E85
compatible. The largest U.S. state by population and vehicle
count has a growing number of fueling outlets that offer E85.
The Husky 5885 P/V Vent;addresses pressure/vacuum
conditions that arise in underground and aboveground
It is constructed from materials that are 100% compat-
ible for use with E85. In a letter to Husky Corp., CARB
noted the 5885 P/V vent “has been tested to the latest
UL 2583;standard which include E- 85 compatibility and
was also certi;ed for use with E- 85 fuels by the California
State Fire Marshal.”
A;recent article in the San Gabriel Valley Tribune
reported the state has 1. 5 million FFVs on the road but
only 190 fueling stations that dispense E85. The fuel
produces fewer harmful emissions than gasoline and
is considerably less expensive per gallon than gasoline
but does not deliver as much fuel ef;ciency per gallon.
The article states E85 “is experiencing a resurgence in
California, with sales volumes more than tripling in the
The Husky 5885 P/V vent incorporates three valves to
control overpressure and vacuum conditions that arise in
• Improved navigation featuring a more intuitive menu system.
• Improved search functionality to make narrowing down
and ;nding relevant results easier.
• Cleaner layout that puts key content ;rst and guides users
to their desired destinations in fewer clicks.
➤ FUELCLOUD OBTAINS PATENT
FOR FUEL MANAGEMENT TECHNOLOGY
The U.S. Patent and
Trademark Of;ce (USPTO)
recently granted FuelCloud
Inc. a patent for its fuel
U.S. Patent No.
10,210,696 covers the combination of hardware, online software and mobile applications
to authorize transactions and monitor fuel inventory.
“We started FuelCloud to build a better way to manage fuel,
and this patent is validation that we’re doing something truly spe-
cial,” said;Kevin Bretthauer, vice president of sales at FuelCloud.
“We will continue to develop and patent new technology to
improve how organizations monitor and manage their fuel.”
FuelCloud’s cloud-based fuel management system uses
lightweight hardware, a web-based dashboard and a mobile app
to give organizations complete visibility and control over their
fuel use. Managers can replace traditional card lock systems
with FuelCloud’s mobile app authorization, and all transaction
data is uploaded in real time to the dashboard for simple moni-
toring and reporting. Organizations that use FuelCloud reduce
the hours needed to manage fuel distribution and monitor
transactions, protect their fuel inventory from theft or unde-
tected slippage and have more control over fuel access.
Founded in 2015 by fuel industry veterans, FuelCloud
is easy to install and provides constant monitoring of pump
use. Tank owners can monitor use on their mobile phones or
through a comprehensive dashboard that can create detailed
reports in an instant.
