Petition for New Rulemaking
EPA received a petition requesting a rulemaking to ensure the continued availability of gasoline containing 10 vol% or less ethanol at retail stations for use in vehicles, engines, and nonroad equipment not covered by the E15 partial waivers. EPA denied the petition for reasons discussed in Preamble section III.F.d of the final rule.
