San Diego Home to Nation’s First Ethanol Station


The LA Times brought attention this weekend to Pearson Fuels on El Cajon Boulevard. Pearson Fuels’ claim to fame comes from offering the nations first ethanol pump in 2003 along with a propane pump, two types of natural gas pumps, biodiesel, and six electric car charging bays. This one-of-a-kind alternative gas station is co-owned by Mike Lewis and Pearson Ford.
