The Engine Products Group, is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to reconsider a court of appeal's decision not to hear a case against the Environmental Protection Agency's allowance of E15, or gas with 15 percent ethanol, in the overall fuel supply.
The petition asks the Supreme Court to reconsider a D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals decision in August that none of the parties had standing in the case challenging the EPA's decision to grant partial waivers approving the sale of gasoline containing E15. The petition asks the Supreme Court to accept the case for review. If the Supreme Court does so, the parties will then ask the court to reverse the appeals court's ruling and find the parties have the right to challenge the EPA's partial waiver decisions that allow the sale of E15 for some passenger cars and light trucks, but not older vehicles or in motorcycles, boats and off-road engines.
