WASHINGTON, D.C. – Growth Energy, the nation’s largest association of biofuel producers and supporters, released a new report showcasing nearly universal compatibility with fuel blended with 15 percent ethanol (E15) among vehicles on the road today. The report was prepared by Air Improvement Resource, Inc. (AIR), a leading engineering and consulting firm specializing in inventory modeling and analysis, at the request of Growth Energy.

“This report confirms that better access to lower-cost E15 could save motorists money on 98 percent of all vehicle miles traveled in the United States,” said Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor. “Combined with other research illustrating that nationwide E15 could slash emissions by 17.62 million tons per year, it’s clear why keeping the president’s vow to usher ‘in a new era of biofuels’ is vital to meeting America’s economic and climate goals.”

E15 is approved by EPA for use in all light-duty vehicles model year 2001 and newer. Based on the current vehicle fleet and sales over the past year, the new report shows that E15 is approved for 96 percent of light-duty cars and trucks on the road (nearly 246 million vehicles). The report also demonstrates that E15-compatible vehicles accumulate 98 percent of the vehicle miles traveled, representing 97 percent of on-road energy consumption by light-duty cars and trucks.
