      Diesel Sulfur Limits. EPA had originally proposed a 15 ppm sulfur cap for all diesel fuel sold for on-road vehicles beginning in To address concerns expressed by the U.S. Department of Energy regarding possible fuel shortages and price spikes, and in recognition of the special burden placed by the rule on small refiners, EPA in the final rule called for a phase-in of the 15 ppm low.   “If this proposed rule is finalized, this regulation would leave E15 as the only ethanol-blended fuel that does not have Reid Vapor Pressure (RVP) relief. RVP is the measure of a fuel’s volatility and EPA regulates vapor pressure/RVP to prevent increased ozone or smog from vehicle emissions.” Author: Rebecca Chillrud. For more information.

      On Oct. 3, the U.S. EPA released its proposed Renewable Enhancement and Growth Support rule, which aims to enhance the renewable fuel standard (RFS) program and related fuel regulations to support the growth of ethanol and other renewable fuels. For example, it appears EPA’s proposal to streamline fuel program compliance surveys—including the unnecessary E15 survey—could result in reduced cost and regulatory burden for ethanol producers.” The proposed rule spans more than pages and includes a wide variety of other provisions that impact the EPA’s fuels regulations.

      The committee reviewed the health benefits analyses contained in the regulatory impact assessments (RIAs) prepared for the following EPA rule-makings: (1) “Particulate Matter and Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards” (EPA ), (2) “Tier 2 Motor Vehicle Emissions Standards and Gasoline Sulfur Control Requirements” (EPA a), and (3) “Heavy Duty Engine and Vehicle Standards. This action proposes to update the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) existing gasoline, diesel, and other fuels programs to improve overall compliance assurance and maintain environmental performance, while reducing compliance costs for industry and EPA. EPA is proposing to streamline its existing fuel quality regulations by removing.

In this action, EPA proposes to streamline existing fuels regulations by deleting expired provisions, eliminating redundant compliance provisions (e.g., duplicative registration requirements that are required by every EPA fuels program), removing unnecessary and out-of-date requirements, and replacing them with a single set of provisions and definitions that will apply across all gasoline, diesel, and other fuels programs.

In a J notice of proposed rulemaking, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed percentage standards for four categories of renewable fuel that would apply to obligated parties in under the Renewable Fuel Standard.

This action takes into consideration certain comments received in response to the proposed rule. Diesel Fuel Standards EPA’s decades-long effort to reduce criteria pollutants, air toxics and other harmful emissions from diesel fuel used in transportation have resulted in significant health and environmental benefits while advancing technology, and minimizing cost.

EPA is revising its gasoline regulations to make it clear that EE83 fuel blends are not gasoline, and hence not fully subject to gasoline quality standards. However, we will also be putting in place standards that ensure the quality and environmental performance of this fuel. EPA's proposed regulations for diesel fuel: hearing before the Subcommittee on Clean Air, Wetlands, Private Property and Nuclear Safety of the Committee on Environment and Public Works, United.

EPA intends to streamline its existing fuels regulations under 40 CFR part The purpose of this effort is to update EPA's existing gasoline, diesel, and other fuels regulations to help reduce compliance costs for stakeholders as well as EPA, while improving overall compliance assurance and maintaining environmental performance.

Under the fuel economy regulations, manufacturers use the results of their exhaust emission tests as the basis for calculating litmus test evaluations (see 40 CFR ). However, in the Tier 3 rule EPA did not change the fuel economy test fuel specifications from E0 to E10 as was done for Tier 3 exhaust emissions.

A dual fueled vehicle is a vehicle which is “capable of operating on alternative fuel or a mixture of biodiesel and diesel fuel * * *, and on gasoline or diesel fuel” for the minimum driving range (defined by the DOT). (31) Dual fueled vehicle labels must: Indicate the fuel economy of the automobile when operated on gasoline or diesel fuel.

The U.S. EPA released a proposed rule on April 13 that aims to streamline and modernize the agency’s existing fuels regulations. In the rulemaking, the EPA said it is proposing “some slight modifications to the Renewable Fuel Standard,” but indicated it does not plan to make substantive changes to the RFS as part of this rulemaking.

The Clean Air Act requires the EPA to promulgate regulations that specify the annual volume requirements for renewable fuels under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) program. Standards are to be set for four different categories of renewable fuels: cellulosic biofuel, biomass based diesel (BBD), advanced biofuel, and total renewable fuel.

EPA’s decades-long effort to reduce criteria pollutants, air toxics and other harmful emissions from diesel fuel used in transportation have resulted in significant health and environmental benefits while advancing technology, and minimizing cost. These benefits are a result of a number of regulatory programs, including reducing sulfur levels in diesel fuel voluntary programs including the.

(06/19/15) ATLANTA - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) are jointly proposing standards for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles that would improve fuel efficiency and cut carbon pollution to reduce the impacts of climate change, while bolstering energy security and spurring manufacturing.SUMMARY: This document contains regulations relating to the diesel fuel and kerosene excise tax.

These regulations reflect changes made by the American Jobs Creation Act of regarding mechanical dye injection systems for diesel fuel and kerosene. These regulations affect certain enterers, refiners, terminal operators, and throughputters.

Individual diesel owners who care about the superior performance and efficiency of diesel engine hacked their cars, bypassing EPA regulations. Hacking a diesel car is not hard. Because modern cars are computers on wheels, owners who want an efficient and high-performing engine can get it tuned from a friendly mechanic.
