Study Shows More E 85 Use Could Topple Blend Wall

Study Shows More E 85 Use Could Topple Blend Wall

 

An Iowa State University study indicates that the E 10 blend wall can be overcome by increasing incentives for drivers to use E 85.  Renewable Fuel Association Vice President of Research and Analysis Geoff Cooper says the fuel and the automobiles that use it are available to be able to easily surpass the blend wall.

Cooper says the study concludes that pricing E 85 low enough will generate fuel cost savings that will quickly and significantly increase ethanol consumption.

Cooper says the study also finds that it would be less expensive for oil companies to invest in e 85 infrastructure than it would to continue paying higher renewable identification number prices.
