RFA Applauds Fiat Chrysler Approval of E15

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 15:46:21 CDT

RFA Applauds Fiat Chrysler Approval of E15 The Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) is applauding Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ (FCA) decision to approve the use of E15 (15 percent ethanol and 85 percent gasoline) in its model year (MY) 2016 Chrysler/Fiat, Jeep, Dodge and Ram vehicles. The decision means that FCA joins General Motors and Ford (the “Detroit Three”) in covering E15 in its warranty statements; GM started covering E15 with its MY 2012 vehicles, while Ford joined a year later with its MY 2013 vehicles. More than 12 percent of the vehicles sold so far in the United States in 2015 have been Chryslers.


RFA President and CEO Bob Dinneen, who specifically called on Chrysler to approve E15 during his State of the Industry address at this year’s National Ethanol Conference, called the decision “a seminal moment that augurs well for the continued expansion of E15.”


“FCA’s decision to join GM and Ford provides clear evidence that the tide on E15 has turned,” Dinneen said. “The automaker’s decision not to embrace E15 had been a major point of concern and tension for the last three years. FCA customers will be afforded a benefit that will likely lower their weekly motor fuel bill: the freedom to choose what fuel to put into their vehicles.”
