EPA Approves Year-Round E15 In Wisconsin

It’s official. Drivers in Wisconsin will be able to fuel up with cheaper fuel throughout the year, namely E15.

The Environmental Protection Agency implemented its final rule allowing higher blends of ethanol year-round in eight Midwestern states. The rule takes effect in April 2025. It will apply in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.

Wisconsin BioFuels Association President Erik Hushitt thanks Gov. Tony Evers for teaming up with Midwestern governors to take action under the Clean Air Act, paving the way for the year-round sale of E15.

“This action will now ensure access to cleaner and more affordable fuel to all of Wisconsin,” Hushitt says.

He notes that the industry is frustrated with the EPA for delaying implementation until 2025.

“Our states look forward to a future where the benefits of E15 are realized year-round, benefiting consumers, the agricultural sector, and our environment,” WBFA says.
