EPA Revising Ethanol Fuel Standards


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency approved the first applications for registration of ethanol for use in making gasoline that contains up to 15% ethanol – known as E15.

For more than 30 years, ethanol, a renewable fuel, has been blended into gasoline, but the amount was legally limited to 10% by volume for use in gasoline-fueled vehicles.

To enable widespread use of E15, the Obama Administration has set a goal to help fueling station owners install 10,000 blender pumps during the next five years.
