Ethanol Industry Discounts API Poll

Submitted by on April 7, 2017 – 1:17 pmNo Comment

by Cindy Zimmerman (Energy.AgWired.com)  The Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) is calling results of yet another American Petroleum Institute (API) push poll released today “skewed” and based on misleading questions. API claims its poll results show a majority of Americans are “concerned about the government requiring increased amounts of ethanol in gasoline” under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).

RFA notes that API historically frames its polling questions to be biased against the RFS, providing a question from API’s April 2016 poll as an an example:

“As you may know, much of the gasoline in the U.S. market currently contains up to a 10% ethanol blend. Most auto manufacturers have said they will not cover vehicle damage caused by higher ethanol fuel blends over 10% if the vehicle is not specifically designed for it. Given that situation, how concerned are you about government requirements that would increase the amount of ethanol in gasoline?”

RFA also notes that a recent survey conducted on their behalf by Morning Consult found a more than 3:1 margin of support for the RFS.  READ MORE and MORE (DTN The Progressive Farmer) and MORE (Ethanol Producer Magazine) and MORE (Biofuels International)
