EPA one step closer to approving E15


DES MOINES (WKOW) -- The Environmental Protection Agency has moved closer to wide distribution of gas mixed with 15 percent ethanol, called E15.

The EPA will allow manufactures to register as suppliers of E15. But E15 still has to pass federal tests and become a registered fuel in states. In addition, makers of E15 have to convince petroleum marketers to sell it at gas stations.

Most ethanol fuel sold for passenger cars and pickups is 10 percent ethanol and 90 percent gas. The new blend boosts ethanol to 15 percent.
