Need diesel fuel, unleaded gasoline, ethanol-blend gasoline, or biodiesel? We deliver for all your commercial and farming needs.

When you take advantage of our popular Automated Fuel Delivery (AFD) service, you never have to worry about running out of fuel. With AFD, fuel is delivered direct from the terminal to your tank by Cenex. We’ll also monitor your tanks automatically, so more fuel is scheduled for delivery, based on your usage.

There is no cost to participate in the AFD program. Several payment options are available, including daily pricing, contracting, and deferred billing. With deferred billing, you pay for the fuel as you use it, with the benefit of the average monthly pricing. This gives you the ability to increase cash flow by paying as you go, plus you’ll avoid peaks in fuel prices.

Lubricants, Engine Oil, Hydraulic Fluid, and Grease Products

We serve a wide range of commercial customers and truck fleets who use our high-quality lubricants and oils which are backed by Cenex's 10-year, 10,000-hour warranty. We deliver greases, oils, and lubricants in packages of quarts, up to 265-gallon totes. We also offer a bulk delivery system.

Heating options for commercial settings

River Valley can also help you heat livestock operations, manufacturing facilities, and other commercial businesses. Our experienced energy professionals sell and service RE-Verber-Ray® and L.B. White heaters, infrared and forced-air heaters.

We also offer a selection of contract options to meet your needs, including pre-pay, even pay, and no money down. Would it be more convenient to have your payment automatically deducted from your checking or savings account? We can do that, too.

Need temporary heat?

If you’re working on new construction or pouring concrete in the colder months of the year, did you know River Valley rents heaters and tanks for residential and construction purposes? We offer 60,000- to 400,000-BTU heaters and 500- to 1,000-gallon propane tanks. We will also deliver, install, and service your heat needs.
