A few years ago, automakers filed a lawsuit against the Environment Protection Agency’s (EPA) decision to make E15 (gasoline with 15 percent ethanol) legal for all cars after 2007. They argued that the blend could cause damage to a majority of older cars on the road. However, since then, more research has surfaced that attests E15 is considered safe for use in model year 2001 and newer light-duty motor vehicles as they’re built with parts that can withstand the 15 percent blend. E15 is slowly springing up at gas stations and already powers NASCAR vehicles.
