AAA Calls for Stop of E15 Ethanol Gasoline Blend Sales

A recent report has uncovered a new controversy, which has arisen over ethanol, since for the same AAA and the renewable fuels industry have been locking horns. Friday, the clash came into picture.

It has been told that the motorist advocacy group asked gas stations as well as the Environmental Protection Agency to not continue with the sales of the blend of the E15 ethanol gasoline. It said that the suggestion should be followed unless and until a better labeling system is worked out to ensure protection of drivers and their vehicles.

But, as per the findings, this call for halt of the sales forced biofuels groups to return fire. Since, CEO Robert Darbelnet for AAA had asked that the fuel blend may result in a damage of cars of unsuspecting motorists.

It is probably due to the higher ethanol blend that the concerns have been raised. Since, E15 contains 15% ethanol and 85% of gasoline. However, earlier, federal regulators had allowed 10% ethanol concentration.

"If AAA weren't deep in the Big Oil politics, they would stop manufacturing concern about the efficacy of ethanol blend use and report enthusiastically about ethanol's consumer gasoline price savings", Bob Dinneen, Renewable Fuels Association President was quoted affirming.
