By Rebekah Rast — Nine gas stations in the nation now have pumps with E15 gasoline.
E15 is a blend of regular gasoline mixed with 15 percent ethanol. The pumps are recognized by their black and orange labels.
And that label is not something you want to ignore.
In an effort to curb U.S. dependency on gasoline and oil — foreign and domestic — the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has approved the use of E15 gasoline for vehicle models 2001 and newer.
However controversy surrounds this new blend and whether or not it is safe for your vehicle.
