POLICY CORNER

What is E15? Ethanol is an advanced, homegrown biofuel that is already in 98 percent of the U.S. fuel supply and is moving America forward every day.

E15: • Is a higher-blend, higher-octane fuel choice • Burns cleaner and cooler, which is good for your engine • Utilizes more earth-friendly ethanol, which cuts carbon emissions by 43 percent and displaces chemicals that create smog and are linked to cancer and asthma
