Higher ethanol-blended fuels

Do you have a passenger vehicle model year 2001 or newer or a Flex Fuel Vehicle? If so, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency approves higher ethanol-blended fuel for use in your car. Here’s what you need to know before filling up with E15 or E20 at the pump:

  • E15 and E20 are innovative, higher-octane fuels composed of 15-20% ethanol and 80-85% gasoline
  • More than 80% of cars, trucks and SUVs on the road today are approved to fill up with higher ethanol-blended fuels
  • 250+ million miles have been driven in vehicles fueled with E15 − with no reported cases of engine damage or misfueling
  • Since 2011, ethanol-blended fuels have provided consumers with higher-octane, lower-priced fuel options at the pump
