EPA Denies E15 Waiver for Pre-2001 Cars, Permits Use in Newer Cars

Consumers will not see E15 at the pump any time soon.  The EPA must first approve regulations on how gas stations will label their pumps to avoid consumer misfueling.  This will take months.  Furthermore, there is no obligation that gasoline retailers market the fuel.  In fact, some retailers oppose the fuel over concern that they could be held liable if E15 damages a vehicle.  The gas stations and distributors may also need to invest in new storage tanks, hoses and other equipment.

The SAN will continue to oppose E15 until there are conclusive scientific findings that demonstrate that it will not harm automobiles of any age as a result of corrosion or other chemical incompatibilities.  SEMA represents thousands of companies that market products for these vehicles and, through its SEMA Action Network, millions of enthusiasts who buy and operate these automobiles.   Questions/comments may be directed to Steve McDonald at [email protected]
