How many states offer E15 (15 percent ethanol) blends and how many automakers warranty their vehicles for higher ethanol blends? The answer to these questions and many more is simple its in the 2017 Ethanol Industry Outlook, released today at the Renewable Fuels Associations 22nd Annual National Ethanol Conference (NEC). Specifically, the Outlook provides readers with statistics, insight and analysis on the latest facts of the U.S. ethanol industry.
