E15 Facts

  • E15 is a blend of 15% ethanol and 85% gasoline.  It is an environmentally-friendly fuel that burns cleaner than gasoline.
  • Until recently, gasoline ethanol blends were limited to a maximum of 10 percent ethanol known as E10.  E10 represents 97% of the gasoline sold in the U.S.  E15 uses the same type of ethanol as blended in E10.
  • The U.S. EPA has approved E15 for use in model year 2001 and newer cars, trucks SUVs.
  • Research by the U.S. Department of Energy concluded when E15 was compared to gasoline, there were no significant changes in vehicle tailpipe emissions or vehicle drivability as ethanol content increased.
