NREL study show most vehicles likely compatible with E10 and E15

November 23, 2021 |

In Colorado, a new study conducted by the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is out now that shows all vehicles in the study countries are highly likely to be compatible with E10. Motorcycles and scooters similarly analyzed in India and Indonesia have full compatibility with E10, and many are also compatible with E15.

The study looks at the impact of ethanol-blended fuel at various levels on “in-operation” vehicles built to differing emissions and manufacturing standards around the world. Vehicles in Canada, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea and Mexico were the primary focus. And, because motorcycles and scooters dominate the markets for India and Indonesia, motorcycle fleets for these countries are also assessed.
