scope:

This publication describes recommended practices for the storing, handling, and fire protection of ethanol and gasoline-ethanol blends from E1 to E15 and from E65 to E100 (used for E85) at distribution terminals and filling stations. Where information exists for gasoline-ethanol blends from E11 to E15, it is shared. Recommended practices for E16 through E69 are not covered because currently these blends are not legal gasolines blends or alternative fuels. There is a general lack of information on the properties of these blends and there are currently no filling station components certified by any nationally recognized testing laboratory for these blends.

This document is current at the time of publication, but changes to regulations and listings may affect the accuracy certain recommended practices. See the form in Annex D to provide suggestions for updating or revision.

While this publication does not address second or future generation biomass-based alcohols which use feedstocks and manufacturing processes that are different than those employed for current U.S. ethanol supplies, it is unlikely that sugar or cellulosic ethanols will alter the overall recommendations in this RP.

Future generation bioethanol fuels may have different properties and the practices described in this publication may not be applicable. When dealing with those fuels, good engineering practices should be employed until this document is updated.

This publication does not address ethanol diesel blends.

This publication does not address health effects or the remediation of ethanol or gasoline-ethanol blend spills or releases.
