E15 is a greener, more affordable fuel choice at the pump.

Forty-three states already give consumers access to E15 – and now it’s New York’s turn.

The New York Department of Agriculture and Markets may soon update the state’s fuel regulations to allow the sale of E15, a fuel blend containing 15 percent ethanol. Ethanol is a biofuel already found in nearly all U.S. fuel.

What is E15?

E15 is…

✔ A higher-octane fuel blend with 15 percent ethanol
Better for the environment
✔ Up to 10 cents less per gallon than traditional fuel
✔ EPA-approved for nine out of 10 cars on the road today
Good for your engine
✔ Currently found at more than 1,700 stations across 30 states

E15 is EPA-approved for car models 2001 and newer – that’s nine out of 10 cars on the road today.

E15 in New York

E15 in New York will give drivers an additional choice at the pump that can cut carbon emissions, keep the air cleaner, and save money.

E15 is Engine-Friendly

E15 burns cleaner and cooler than traditional gasoline, keeping your engine running smooth.

E15 is Affordable

E15 costs five to 10 cents less than traditional gas – keeping more money in your pocket.

E15 is Better for the Environment

Ethanol cuts carbon emissions by 43% – and it reduces the need for toxic chemicals that contribute to asthma and smog.

Giving Drivers Choices at the Pump

E15 provides consumers with an additional choice at the pump, but it doesn’t replace the standard 10 percent ethanol blends found nationwide. Traditional E10 remains the go-to option for all smaller engines, including:

  • Snowmobiles
  • Lawnmowers
  • Boats
  • Motorcycles
  • And more!

Under federal law, some small equipment should not be fueled with higher ethanol blends, and that is why all those pumps are clearly labeled. A recent survey shows that nine out of 10 U.S. small engine agree it’s important to have choices at the pump. And 95 percent of small engine owners find it easy to select the right fuel for their needs. Learn more about E10 and small engines here.
