NATSO President and CEO Lisa Mullings today announced the appointment of Jeff Hove as the association's new Fuel Specialist.

Having spent more than 20 years serving the petroleum industry, Hove joins NATSO to help members of the truckstop and travel plaza community navigate the complex compliance requirements of state and federal fuel regulations, including the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), as well as help them implement profitable strategies related to supply options and fuel infrastructure.

"Jeff has decades of experience in helping members of the fuel-retailing community navigate the complex regulatory environment in which they operate," said NATSO President and CEO Lisa Mullings. "His extensive knowledge of environmental, safety and other regulations will make him an excellent resource for our truckstop and travel plaza members. I'm confident that Jeff will add great value for our industry, and I am thrilled to welcome him to NATSO."

For over two decades Jeff Hove served the petroleum industry through state and federal legislative and rule-making representation. During his career, Hove created solutions to help the industry comply with EPA's Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel Standard; Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasures; HazMat Training; Weights and Measures Fuel Quality Standards; UST Insurance and Leak Prevention; as well as EPA's Renewable Fuel Standard and California's Low Carbon Fuel Standard.

Hove also worked with biodiesel and ethanol producers to educate producers and renewable fuel blenders on the equipment and fuel quality impacts of renewable fuels. Following the implementation of the Renewable Fuel Standard in 2007, Hove helped petroleum marketers and renewable fuel blenders realize greater profits by buying and trading Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs) under the RFS.
