With E15 offerings on the rise across the U.S., the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) has released a guide to assist retailers with choosing legal equipment with which to dispense the renewable fuel. The E15 retailer new equipment guide provides information on how to properly offer E15 at the retailer level.
In addition, RFA is highlighting what they believe are key items retailers should consider before ordering equipment:
- What are the equipment options to legally offer E15 to 2001 and newer vehicles?
- What are the various dispenser hose configurations allowed?
- What are the retail fuel dispenser labeling requirements for each configuration?
“Four years and 23 states later, confusion still remains in the fuel equipment and retailing communities when it comes to E15,” said Renewable Fuels Association Vice President of Industry Relations Robert White. “With this document, we hope we can eliminate the misinformation and ensure retailers get the appropriate equipment needed to safely and legally offer this relatively new fuel. With proper labeling and education, we look forward to seeing many more retailers, consumers and states embrace E15 in the near future.”
