On May 31, 2019, the biofuels industry celebrated a significant milestone for American drivers who are now allowed to fuel up with E15, a fuel blended with 15 percent ethanol, year-round. Until recently, an outdated regulation, known as Reid Vapor Pressure – or RVP – prevented drivers from accessing cleaner, more affordable biofuel blends year-round.

Submit a comment on the proposal for E15 year-round and let EPA know you want a cleaner, more affordable fuel choice at the pump all year long.
