Promote Consumer Choice at the Pump

6/09/17 (Fri)

The Reid Vapor Pressure (RVP) control season stems from an outdated regulation that hasn’t been updated since 1990, forcing gas stations to restrict their sales of E15 (gasoline blended with 15 percent ethanol) to flex fuel vehicles only, or remove it from sale altogether between June 1 and September 15.

Fortunately, the bipartisan Consumer and Fuel Retailer Choice Act (S.517/H.R.1311) was introduced in March that simply adds two words to the 1990 law, extending the RVP waiver to fuel with 10 or more percent ethanol, allowing retailers across the country to offer more biofuel choices to customers year-round.
