AAA says 95 percent of the people it surveyed have not heard of E-15
WASHINGTON, D.C. (KTIV) -
The Environmental Protection Agency approved its sale in June, but AAA is sounding a warning about E-15. The EPA says the gasoline blend with 15-percent corn fuel is safe for use in 2001 and newer cars, light duty trucks and SUVs.
But the Automobile Association of America says sustained use of E-15 could damage both older and newer vehicles by accelerating engine wear, which could void warranties. The association says 95 percent of people it surveyed had not even heard of E-15. The motoring corporation says automakers have approved fewer than five percent of vehicles to use it.
AAA wants sales of E-15 stopped until regulators can do a better job educating the public.
