Additional caps on benzene, a large proportion of reformate, presents another challenge to octane production. What about ethanol, the plant-based renewable blended into every tankful? At 115 octane, ethanol is already blended into gasoline at 10 percent, but refiners can’t push any further. Automakers, engine manufacturers, AAA, and the American Petroleum Institute have all lobbied against E15, a 15 percent blend, claiming it would lead to premature component failures. Without dumping more ethanol—or other octane boosters like lead and MTBE, which were outlawed for road use in 1996 and 2006, respectively—refiners have experienced an “octane shortage that required refiners and blenders to acquire more expensive sources of octane,” the EIA said.
