We believe in a diversified market that allows consumers to have choices at the pump where innovation, the economy and the job market all thrive. Ethanol and Bio-Diesel play a key role in our nation’s energy future and security. Zarco USA is at the forefront of the Renewable Fuels Standard and the future of transportation energy. The Renewable Fuels Standards’ objective is to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, reduce greenhouse gas emmissions, and to provide economic opportunity across the country. The renewable fuels industry supports hundreds of thousands of American jobs.

America’s fuel supply has been from a single source for the better part of a century. It’s becoming more difficult to extract crude oil and it has become crucial to develop alternative sources of transportation energy. Our country has spent billions on our military to secure foreign oil supplies. Henry Ford produced the first mass- produced automobile in the United States. It was capable of running on ethanol or gasoline. His extraordinary vision is becoming a reality in the 21st century. It’s time to make a change.

The Facts of Ethanol Blends Beyond 10%


In addition to anecdotal evidence from motorists who have reported successful use of blends beyond 10% ethanol in standard vehicles, scientific evidence is mounting that non-flex-fuel autos may be able to operate well on blends beyond the E10 that automakers currently certify. In addition to a 1999 study on the use of E30 in standard autos and a 2006 ethanol fuel economy study, the “Optimal Ethanol Blend-Level Investigation” found that the vehicles tested operated well on blends beyond 10%. The “optimal blend” research also found the belief about ethanol’s mileage penalty (that as the fuel’s ethanol content goes up, the fuel economy would go down due to ethanol’s lower BTU value) not to be true. Instead, the pilot research suggests that there is an “optimal” blend of ethanol and gasoline — likely E20 or E30 — at which vehicles get better mileage than predicted, and in some cases even better mileage than gasoline. E20 offered a 15% mileage improvement over gasoline in one of the four vehicles, and E30 offered a 1% mileage increase in two of the vehicles.View a press release, the study’s Executive Summary, ordownload the full reportof the 2007 “Optimal Ethanol Blend-Level Investigation.”The State of Minnesota is conducting research on E20 to prepare for its statewide ethanol requirement to change from 10% to 20% in 2013. Its research, completed in early 2008, shows that E20 presents no materials compatibility issues for today’s vehicle fleet and fuel dispensing infrastructure. No drivability concerns were raised in the year-long testing. View a press release or download the executive summaryof the Minnesota research.In 2006, Lake Area Technical Institute in Watertown, South Dakota, conducted research on a standard, non-flex-fuel vehicle that had run almost exclusively on E85 for more than 100,000 miles. The engine of the 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe was torn down to examine the E85’s long-term impact on the engine components. Not only did the engine not show any adverse effects from the use of E85, some of the engine components were in even better condition than a comparable vehicle that had run on gasoline.
