Coalition sends letter to President Biden asking for higher octane fuels

July 20, 2021 |

In Washington, dozens of agricultural, ethanol, automotive, and manufacturing organizations are calling for higher octane in gasoline to help automakers increase vehicle fuel economy and reduce greenhouse gases.

In a letter to President Joe Biden, signed by a range of agriculture and ethanol interests, they pointed to the role that higher-octane fuels could play in advancing the Administration’s climate and public health objectives. This letter follows a letter to the High Octane Low Carbon Alliance (HOLCA) weeks earlier from the Alliance for Automotive Innovation that expressed support for high octane low carbon fuels in new and existing internal combustion engines…as soon as possible….. to facilitate the nation’s transition to a lower carbon economy.”

The letter to the President was signed by more than two dozen groups and called for the Environmental Protection Agency to address octane in the current forthcoming rulemaking on Light-Duty Vehicle Greenhouse Gas Emissions Standards (or the “SAFE-2 Rule”) now under review at the Office of Management and Budget.
