Comparative Emissions Testing of Vehicles Aged on E0, E15 and E20 Fuels The United States Energy Independence and Security Act passed into law in December 2007 mandates the use of 36 billion ethanol equivalent gallons per year of renewable fuel by 2022. A primary pathway to achieve this national goal is to increase the amount of ethanol blended into gasoline. This study evaluated the effect of higher ethanol blends, up to 20% by volume, on vehicle exhaust emissions over the lifetime of the vehicle. The test plan established baseline (pre-aging) exhaust emissions for eighteen vehicles. The vehicles were periodically retested following mileage accumulation to quantify the change of exhaust emissions as the vehicles aged. For each vehicle model, the test results for the vehicles aged on E0, E15, and E20 fuels were directly compared to assess the impact of ethanol content on exhaust emissions deterioration.
