A fight is brewing in the halls of the EPA over whether or not to extend the limit of ethanol-blended fuels. Currently, ethanol can be blended with gasoline in a 10 percent ethanol/90 percent gasoline blend (commonly called E10) without harming vehicles or voiding OEM warranties. However, several pro-ag groups and others want the EPA to raise that limit to 15 percent, which might run the risk of harming engines (as ethanol is a highly corrosive substance; E85 ethanol, which is 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline, can only be used in specially built “flex-fuel” vehicles). You can read more here, but expect this to be a battle with very important consequences.
