Question:

Where does Thriftway get its gasoline?

Answer:

The five transports of Mountain West Transportation, a subsidiary of Sutey Oil Company, the parent company of Thriftway Super Stops, hauls fuels to all Super Stops from fuel depots in Helena and Bozeman.

When it comes to our quality Conoco® gasoline, you’re getting the highest quality gasoline available. Conoco® gasoline is recognized as TOP TIER products. Conoco met this standard by raising their detergent additive program to levels that go far beyond the national standard - and exceed most competitive brands.
