Consumers Will Have Uninterrupted Access to E15

The Iowa Corn Growers Association (ICGA) is excited that consumers will have ongoing access to E15, a clean-burning, homegrown, lower-cost fuel choice. Today, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will use existing authority to provide continued access throughout the summer months for E15.  

“ICGA along with the National Corn Growers Association and other partners have worked with the Administration to ensure that homegrown, cleaner-burning E15 is accessible during the busy summer driving season,” said Denny Friest, a farmer from Radcliffe and President of the Iowa Corn Growers Association. “We appreciate EPA’s timely action to save consumers up to 20 cents per gallon while also creating market access for Iowa corn farmers as the top ethanol and corn producing state.” 

E15, also commonly marketed as Unleaded 88 at the pump, is approved for use in 2001 or newer vehicles accounting for over 95 percent of vehicles on the road today. Iowa is the top corn and ethanol producing state so access to the fuel market is vital for Iowa’s corn farmers.
