EPA To Allow The Use Of E15 In 2001 Through 2006 Vehicles

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the EPA is expected to announce today that it will allow the use of E15 in 2001 through 2006 model year light duty vehicles.

The Obama administration has decided to approve the use of higher levels of ethanol in automobiles made between 2001 and 2006, handing a victory to corn farmers and deepening a conflict with auto makers, oil refiners and other interests who oppose such a step.

The Environmental Protection Agency is expected to announce Friday that it will allow ethanol levels in gasoline blends to be as high as 15% for vehicles made between 2001 and 2006, up from the current 10% maximum, according to two people familiar with the matter.
