“The initial reason the blender pump was installed is because the cooperative was looking at offering something unique to consumers, more choices than just E10. Because there were no stations in Reno County that offered mid-level blends, the cooperative decided to install the blender pump. Ethanol is clean, green and our dollars stay right here. It’s better for our environment and every other aspect. We need to get out there and dispel some of these myths to change the public views of those who lack knowledge.”
- Gordon Roth, Petroleum Manager, Hutchinson Cooperative, Nickerson, Kansas

Mis-fueling Mitigation Plan Requirements


Your ethanol provider must have applied for and received approval for E15 production, must have an approved mis-fueling mitigation plan and agreed to participate and have paid for their portion of the industry compliance survey.

If you are offering E15 via flex fuel pumps you must:

  1. File a mis-fueling mitigation plan with the U.S. EPA. However this is a simple process as you just need to send a letter agreeing to follow the industry mis-fueling plan.
  2. Agree to participate in the industry survey program with the RFG Survey Association, including a nominal registration fee – Click Here to learn more.
  3. Properly label the fuel using the EPA approved fuel label which can be obtained free of charge from Growth Energy (search for part number U-AME-EPA15).
  4. Ensure that all of your product transfer documents contain the correct information regarding volume percentage of ethanol.
  5. Also, be sure to check your state and local regulations regarding proper blends of ethanol in your area including checking with your local fire marshal or authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) about your facility’s compatibility with pumping E15.

If you are offering E15 via a regular fuel pump, you need to follow the directions for converting your location to higher blends of ethanol.

Last but not least, E15 must conform to the RVP requirements for your area based during the summer driving season: More information can be found at EPA's web site.
