Which States Sell E10 Gasoline?


Ethanol (ethyl alcohol) is a type of alcohol fuel. It's possible to use alcohol in internal-combustion engines in its pure form, where it can be mixed with gasoline and used in unmodified gasoline engines. Today, ethanol in low-level blends of up to 10 percent (E10) is sold in every state. In fact, estimates are that 50 percent of the gas sold is E10. However, since there is such a wide variance in labeling requirements, consumers often aren't aware of how much ethanol is in their fuel.
