The Renewable Fuels Association is asking California to increase the availability of flex-fuel vehicles throughout the state.

Scott Richman, RFA chief economist, says demand has rapidly grown for E85 fuel blends in California. “Sales were 40 million gallons as late as 2020. They’ve increased over the last couple of years. There were over 100 million gallons in 2022 and the number of stations continues to expand out there.”

RFA has submitted comments to the California Air Resources Board (CARB), urging the state to promote sales of E85 to help reduce emissions.
