Counterpoint: E15 Good for Car Owners and Environment

Submitted by on April 28, 2015 – 4:18 pmNo Comment

by Joel Hennen (Chicago Sun-Times)  … Unfortunately, I’ve heard a lot of misinformation during the debate about the Chicago Clean Air Choice Ordinance, which would free Chicago fuel retailers from the oil industry’s burdensome restrictions, allowing them to sell E15.

Environmentally, E15 offers clear benefits. Steffen Mueller, the principal economist at the University of Illinois at Chicago, just released a study showing that switching to E15 in Chicago would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 663,646 tons — the equivalent of taking 140,000 cars off the road.

I’ve been selling it for more than a year now, and my customers who are using it tell me they have seen no mileage loss. It’s been approved for use in more than 85 percent of cars on the road today, and with its higher octane, it actually improves engine performance. In fact, what my customers have noticed is savings — and the savings of 5 to 10 cents per gallon can really make a difference for working families.

In Chicago, though, the oil industry will continue its stranglehold unless the government acts. Toward that end, a fund has been established to give retailers financial support to make the change, offering a common-sense approach to introducing a new, better product to a market that is clearly ready.

With the ordinance, retailers will get the ability to offer consumers a lower price at the pump for a fuel that will help get hundreds of thousands of tons of toxic gases out of the air.
