U.S. EPA Publishes E-15 Gasoline Summertime Sale Regulation

On June 10, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a new rule, allowing gasoline blended with up to 15% percent ethanol (E-15) to be sold during the summer months. Stakeholders in the oil industry are expected to challenge the new rule, as they believe classifying E-15, as substantially, like conventional E-10 gasoline is without merit.

The rule is celebrated by the ethanol and agricultural industries with the expectation that it will increase the demand for the higher ethanol-blended fuel, and lead to more widespread adoption.

Fleet operators should be cautious of greater risk associated with potential fueling errors, damage to engines, and underground fueling systems from the use
of E15.
