The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) allows use of E-15 fuel in model year 2001 and newer autos and light-duty vehicles as well as all flex-fuel vehicles (FFV’s). EPA has NOT allowed the use of E-15 in vehicles from the 2000 model year (non-FFV’s) and earlier. EPA chose not to extend the permitted use of E-15 to 2000 model year and older vehicles in large part due to the fact that controlled tests could not be performed on such old vehicles due to various mileage levels, types of use, state of repair and other variables that would render the test results inconclusive. The bottom line is if your vehicle is from model 2001 onward, E-15 is deemed perfectly acceptable by the EPA pursuant to EPA sponsored tests and investigations.
