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 Until recently, an outdated regulation, known as Reid Vapor Pressure – or RVP – prevented drivers from accessing cleaner, more affordable biofuel blends year-round.
But after over a decade of hard work and coordination by Growth Energy, leading fuel retailers, congressional champions, rural advocates, and other key industry stakeholders, EPA took action to lift the outdated regulation on May 31, 2019, allowing American drivers access to E15 year-round
This update followed President Trump’s commitment in 2018 to “unleash the power of E15 to fuel our country all year long”. We were proud to lead the industry to make year-round E-15 a reality, and thank President Trump for his commitment to this effort.
Drivers are choosing E15, known to consumers as Unleaded88, at the pump now more than ever. Over the past several years, E15 has grown exponentially nationwide. It took about four years for retailers to sell enough E15 to fuel 1 billion miles (from about 2013 to 2017). However, since then, use has climbed so quickly […]
