The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has approved the use of E15 ethanol fuels in light duty vehicles built since model year (MY) 2001. The EPA has specifically excluded light duty vehicles built before 2001, as well as non-automotive, marine, and other small engines. The Renewable Fuels Association’s (RFA) E15 Retailer Handbook is designed to provide fuel retailers with regulatory and technical guidance in order to legally store and sell E15 ethanol blends. The Handbook provides sample checklists and questions that all potential E15 retailers should contemplate before moving forward with offerings of E15.
