ACE launches two week ad campaign pushing for RVP update

September 20, 2016 |

In Washington, The American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) kicked-off a two week ad campaign Monday in Environment & Energy Publishing (E&E), a Washington DC-based media outlet with five daily online publications and a daily video webcast for energy and environmental policy leaders.

Charlie Good, an ASE-certified mechanic and c-store owner, is featured in digital advertisements on the most visited web pages of E&E and a video played before the broadcast of E&E TV.  The campaign urges Congress to take action on bipartisan, bicameral legislation (S. 1239 and HR 1736) to allow gas stations to sell E15 year-round by updating EPA’s Reid vapor pressure (RVP) regulation.

Even though it has fewer evaporative emissions than gasoline and E10, EPA refuses to allow E15 in conventional gasoline areas of the country from June 1 to September 15.  As a result, most gas station owners are handcuffed from selling the cleaner and lower cost fuel to motorists year-round. This year’s RVP restriction ended last Thursday but swift enactment of S. 1239 and HR 1736 will avoid the problem when June 1, 2017 comes around.
