  • As test after test has demonstrated, E15 is safe and effective in all light-duty vehicles, no matter when they were designed and built.

  • If you're wondering why E15 is fine for vehicles built since 2007, dubious for vehicles from 2001 through 2006, and denied to vehicles built in 2000 or earlier, EPA offers little explanation.

  • The move is expected to lead to gas stations selling the fuel, known as E15, at specially labeled pumps around the country--but it does not require a blend greater than E10.

    EPA approves E15 fuel, raises concerns

  • The waiver to the Clean Air Act to permit so-called E15 fuel applies only to cars and light trucks made since model year 2007, but the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute and manufacturers argue that once gas stations sell it, consumers will mis-fuel their power equipment, with terrible results.

    E15 fears: More ethanol in gasoline is bad news for power equipment, critics say

  • That decision builds on an EPA decision last October to waive Clean Air Act restrictions on new fuels or additives and allow the ethanol-blended fuel, known as E15, for use in passenger cars built since 2007.

  • Testing will need to evaluate existing data and engineering judgments suggesting a 15 percent ethanol blend (known as E15) may: lead to a significant increase in emissions of environmental pollutants from some engines; damage car and non-road engines; and pose a safety hazard to people operating gasoline-powered equipment.

  • Instead of mandating that 10 percent of gasoline sold at the pump be ethanol, as has been required for years, the EPA issued its so-called E15 rule, which raised to 15 percent the allowable blend of ethanol for cars and certain trucks built since 2007.
