22Oil refiners file lawsuit to overturn EPA's E15 approval for 2001-2006 vehicles

While it's certainly not one of the flashiest legal disputes in the automotive industry, the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) approval of E15 (a fuel consisting of 15 percent ethanol and 85 percent gasoline) has convinced the National Petrochemical and Refiners Association (NPRA), along with the International Liquid Terminals Association and the Western States Petroleum Association to file yet another lawsuit with the U.S. Court of Appeals. This time around, the suit seeks to overturn the

52EPA approves E15 for 2001-2006 Model Year vehicles

The E15 struggle continues with an announcement by the EPA today that E15 (a fuel made up of 15 percent ethanol and 85 percent gasoline) is safe to use in Model Year 2001-2006 vehicles. Last October, the Agency said that 2007 or newer vehicles could safely use the biofuel, and that kicked off a lot of discussion on the safety of the biofuel and a series of lawsuits. Read more on that here.

42EPA delays decision on E15 use in 2001-2006 model-year vehicles

When the EPA approved the use of gasoline blended with 15 percent ethanol content (E15) for model year 2007 and newer vehicles in mid-October, critics immediately chimed in with a wave of concerns. Some argued that drivers would have a difficult time discerning which fuel to pump into their vehicles, while other were concerned that insufficient testing had been conducted by the EPA and urged retailers to limit the sale of E15 to flex fuel vehicles only. For nearly two years, the E15 battle has w

33Ethanol raising hackles: fight over upping gas to E15 continues

The fight over upping the ethanol blend in America's gasoline continues with an entire series of salvos from the different camps. What's at stake is raising the amount of ethanol blended into the gasoline supply from a maximum of 10 percent today (making fuel known as E10) to either E12 or E15.

24Ethanol industry finds voice on E12

Now that we've covered the ethanol-related debate surrounding a move from E10 to E15 from almost every angle, it's time to move on to a discussion about E12. With the Environmental Protection Agency choosing to postpone its decision regarding E15 until further testing can be conducted, an interim move to E12 is now the suggested solution by farmers, ethanol blenders and proponents of renewable fuels.

20Opponents of E15 ethanol blend launch campaign calling for more testing

Last month, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that its decision to raise the ethanol blend from ten percent (E10) to 15 percent (E15) had been postponed pending further testing. Prior to announcing the postponement, the EPA received reports from automakers suggesting that E15 could be detrimental to modern engines. Rather than act in haste, the EPA determined that in-depth testing of current vehicles could more accurately determine the effects of running E15. While the EPA's re

57EPA postpones decision on E15 ethanol blend

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) governs the amount of ethanol usedd in gasoline. The current standard blend stands at ten percent (E10). With farmers wielding pitchforks in anger, the EPA agreed to consider raising the ethanol blend to 15 percent (E15), a move that would avoid hitting the blend wall. As Green Car Advisor reports, the time to decide whether to move to E15 has come, but once again, the EPA has postponed, saying that more testing is needed before a final decision can be m

22EPA postpones decision on E15 ethanol blend again, more testing needed

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets rules about the amount of ethanol found in gasoline that flows from the nation's pump. The current standard for blending ethanol with gasoline stands at ten percent (E10). With farmers holding pitchforks in the air in anger because they want to put more corn into cars, the EPA agreed to consider raising the ethanol blend to 15 percent (E15), a move that would avoid hitting the blend wall. As Green Car Advisor reports, the time to decide whether or
