Ethanol fuel testing from SGS – ensure the quality of your blended fuels.

Ethanol Plant Shot

Ethanol is blended into a wide range of gasoline fuels, including E10, E15 and E85 in the USA. The quality of blended gasoline fuel can be affected by ethanol purity and other factors. Our fuel ethanol cargo inspection and laboratory testing services help fuel blenders, distributors, refiners and traders maintain fuel quality standards and mitigate quality control issues.
