The minimum requirements for ethanol levels in the US are getting more difficult to reach because cars today getting better fuel economy.
For 2017, EPA calls for 18.11 billion gallons of biofuel to be mixed in gasoline and diesel. But it shouldn't affect you at the pump.

The fight over converting the national supply of gasoline from a maximum 10-percent ethanol blend (known as E10) to E15 have quieted down somewhat when it comes to passenger cars. For other applications - like "motorcycles and nonroad products" - the stru
Some of the largest retailers in the US are trying to inject either a little good sense or paranoia into part of their customer base. Lowe's, Walmart and True Value are putting out written warnings about the dangers of filling up non-light-duty-vehicle engines with fuel that contains a higher ethanol blend. It's all part of a campaign backed by the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI), which represents 100 small-engine, utility vehicle and outdoo
