American drivers have officially driven more than 11 billion miles on cleaner-burning E15 fuel, a fuel blended with 15 percent ethanol.

That is an additional one billion miles logged since June, when the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced the removal of Reid Vapor Pressure (RVP) restrictions. In doing so, the potential of E15 fuel was unlocked and sales of the fuel have already grown rapidly.

Prior to the restriction being lifted, drivers were prevented access to the cleaner-burning, more-affordable fuel during the summer months due to antiquated regulations. However, since the announcement of E15 being made available year-round, sales of Unleaded 88 have grown over 25 percent at the start of the summer. And that number is continuing to grow, as fuel retailers and drivers across the nation take advantage of the fuel’s retail and environmental benefits.

As the Unleaded 88 becomes more popular across the nation, we can expect even higher sales in the coming years. E15 is approved for use in all vehicles 2001 and newer, as well as flex fuel vehicles, which combined represent 9 out of 10 vehicles on the road. This means most drivers in the nation are equipped to fuel up with a more affordable, environmentally-friendly fuel.
