E-15 Handbook now available for Retailers


The Renewable Fuels Association has released an “E15 Retailer Handbook,” designed to provide fuel retailers with regulatory and technical guidance in order to legally store and sell E15 ethanol blends.

The Handbook provides sample checklists and questions that all potential E15 retailers should contemplate before moving forward with offerings of E15.

The 44-page booklet covers federal, state and local regulatory requirements, conversion guidelines, quality assurance, safety and labeling.

The 44-page handbook is meant to help ensure compliance with the EPA’s misfueling mitigation requirements and make retailers aware of the labeling requirements in addition to the regulations surrounding blending, storing and dispensing E-15, according to the RFA. The RFA is also providing EPA-approved E15 labels at no charge to retailers.
