E15’s Big Dance

Submitted by on February 17, 2015 – 4:52 pmNo Comment

by Bob Dinneen (Renewable Fuels Association/Ethanol Producer Magazine)   The future is bright as hundreds of E15 stations are in the works with many expected to open, writes Bob Dinneen of RFA. It’s still early in the game for E15 and it will take time for E15 to work its way across the country, just as it did for E10.

What started off in 2012 as a single station offering the higher-level blend in Lawrence, Kansas, has grown to stations in 15 states selling the fuel.

E15—which was approved by the U.S. EPA for 2001 and newer cars, trucks and SUVs—has been in the marketplace for two and a half years. It can now be purchased at stations in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, North Dakota, Nebraska, Ohio, South Dakota, Tennessee and Wisconsin.

Not only is E15 expanding into new states, but it is advancing to the next round in other areas as well. Popular automakers such as Audi, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Jaguar and others now approve the use of the higher-level fuel blend in their new 2015 vehicles. In fact, nearly 70 percent of auto manufacturers approve the use of E15 in model year 2015 vehicles. Swish!

But, no matter how little faith Big Oil puts in consumers, drivers know what can and can’t be put in their fuel tanks. In fact, history reveals no known cases of engine damage or inferior performance while using E15. Moreover, there have been no known cases of misfueling in small engines, boats, pre-2001 vehicles, or other nonapproved equipment, and zero liability claims against retailers, blenders, refiners or automakers have been reported.  READ MORE
