Tell the EPA: No Ethanol Increase


Ethanol is harmful to your health, your vehicle and the environment. Speak out against more ethanol in gasoline today!

An ethanol trade association recently petitioned the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to raise the allowable ethanol content of gasoline from 10 percent to 15 percent.

When ethanol is burned, it generates ozone, a corrosive and toxic gas that damages lung tissue and can trigger or worsen asthma and other respiratory problems.

In addition, most vehicle warranty agreements instruct owners not to fuel their vehicles with gas that contains more than 10 percent ethanol. Adding more ethanol to gas could cause damage vehicle components and emissions control systems. If you own a vehicle damaged because of this, you won’t be eligible for warranty claims.

Fortunately, you have the chance to speak out against this concerning development. The EPA has asked for public comments on the ethanol industry’s petition. You can submit comments using our simple online tool below.

But you must act fast – comments are due by July 20!

(The EPA will post all comments to the docket for this rulemaking, so be advised that your comment will be made public to anyone viewing the docket.)
