The Environmental Protection Agency is expected to raise the allowed blending level of ethanol into gasoline from 10% to 15% this summer, but only for vehicles manufactured in 2001 or later. The Renewable Fuels Association wants the EPA to allow the higher ethanol blend in all vehicle models. "Such a bifurcation of the vehicle market and the fuel market would create, in our opinion, a host of unnecessary challenges to the retailers trying to offer the fuel. It may very well limit the amount of E15 being sold," RFA spokesman Matt Hartwig said.
