Fiat Chrysler has become the last of the Big Three Detroit automakers to approve E15 fuel for use across its entire model range, Reuters reports.
E15 fuel, a blend of 15 percent ethanol and 85 percent gasoline, helps to reduce emissions and weaken North America’s dependence on foreign oil. E10 fuel, which is 10 percent ethanol and 90 percent gasoline, is already sold at most gas stations and was already compatible in FCA cars prior to 2016.
With FCA now joining in, the majority of passengers cars sold in the United States are now compatible with E15. However not many gas stations sell E15 or have the necessary infrastructure to do so, and with low gas prices currently trending, there’s little incentive for them to begin selling it.
Automakers that have yet to adopt E15 across their entire model range include Nissan and Mercedes-Benz.
