The fact is that Spain's current fuel market is split into 79 percent for diesel and 21 percent for gasoline. While Spain produces all the gasoline it need and even exports some (about 3 millions a year), diesel must be imported to satisfy the demand (some 15 million liters per year). According to the AOP, biodiesel can fix the solution because it will allow the country to reduce imported biodiesel, and there will be more gasoline left for export. Of course, the actual blend of ethanol in gasoline should be 8 percent to compensate for the lower energy content of ethanol.
