New Policy Fuels High-Octane Debate
From Wall Street Journal
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has approved a controversial increase of ethanol levels in gasoline for model-year 2007 cars and newer.
In a widely anticipated move, the EPA said Wednesday it would allow ethanol to make up 15 pct of fuel blends, up from the current 10 pct, for these vehicles.
The EPA also proposed a labeling program under which gasoline stations would state the level of ethanol included in the fuel and identify the types of vehicles for which the blend has been approved.
