Once Urban Air Initiative understood the research and the value of ethanol, it focused on a solution. UAI research, along with independent studies, has determined that raising the percentage of ethanol in gasoline would boost octane and reduce aromatic levels across the entire gasoline pool. The research shows that the higher the ethanol blend, the cleaner the fuel, with 15-30% ethanol being optimal for reducing emissions and improving air quality while experiencing little to no mileage loss.
It’s time for the EPA to follow the law set out in the Clean Air Act and reduce aromatics to the greatest degree possible. By advocating for the use of ethanol, a safer and readily available alternative, we can fix our fuel and improve the quality of the air we breathe.
