Costa Rica set to launch E10 in May

November 19, 2018 |

In Costa Rica, local press reports that the country will begin blending 10% ethanol in premium gasoline beginning in May 2019 with lower grades of gas set to be blended with ethanol at another date in the future. Though ethanol is expected to bring down the price of fuel at the pump slightly, E10 in the super gasoline category will save 38,000 metric tons of CO2 by the end of 2019. Studies show that the country will have a vehicle fleet of 4.7 million cars by 2037 but electric vehicles and motorcycles are expected to dominate the market over conventional cars.
