Most gasoline now contains 10 percent ethanol (E10). But, you may see higher ethanol blended gas available for sale – such as 15, 30, 50 or 85 percent ethanol gas – at a gasoline filling station. These higher ethanol blends may even be cheaper than E10, and your consumers may be tempted to buy the higher ethanol content gasoline because of its lower cost.

But, price is no longer the way to choose gasoline safely.  You have to choose the right fuel.

To help the equipment dealer and manufacturing community with this critical issue, OPEI has launched a “Look Before You Pump” campaign to educate and protect consumers from inadvertently mis-fueling their equipment investments.
