Corn growers behind E-15 plan

-A A +A

"Dividing the approval of E15 among model year segments has the potential to make fueling decisions unnecessarily confusing at the pump, especially considering the labels that EPA has proposed," said Illinois Corn Growers Association president and corn farmer Jim Reed.
 "The ethanol industry and the nation's corn farmers hope that after more than 30 years of ethanol blended gasoline proving its ability to reduce oil imports, improving air quality, increasing gasoline performance and reducing costs to the consumer, the transition to the next blend level would be relatively seamless," Reed said. "We will work to see that pump labels don't cause confusion and apprehension regarding this proven, homegrown, renewable fuel."
