During October, when you fill up with higher blends of ethanol—from E15 to E85— not only will you be reducing your cancer risk by choosing ethanol, but participating fuel retailers will donate 3¢ per gallon to breast cancer research at the Fred and Pamela Buffett Cancer Center

Everyone is at risk of inhaling toxic chemicals used for octane in gasoline. These carcinogens make up 25% of a gallon of gas. You are exposed at the pump, from vehicle exhaust, and when these chemicals are released as greenhouse gases. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classifies BTEX chemicals as toxic air pollutants known to cause health issues. Ethanol is a natural, plant-based octane booster used to displace some of these chemicals which have been linked to cancer (including breast cancer), heart disease, and respiratory issues. 

According to the EPA, ethanol’s high octane value has allowed refiners to significantly reduce the aromatic content of the gasoline. To be exact, increased ethanol in gasoline allowed the United States to reduce the total volume of aromatics in gasoline from about 25% in 2005 to about 20% in 2016. High-octane ethanol blends also improve vehicle performance and efficiency.

According to Cancer.org, the link between benzene and cancer has largely focused on leukemia and other cancers of blood cells. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) says benzene causes cells not to work correctly. For example, it can cause bone marrow not to produce enough red blood cells, causing anemia. Also, it can damage the immune system by changing blood levels of antibodies and causing the loss of white blood cells. Another major source of benzene exposure is tobacco smoke.

The EPA limits the percentage of benzene allowed in gasoline to an average of 0.62% by volume (with a maximum of 1.3%). In 1978, the EPA’s Clean Air Act waiver allowed the use of 10 percent ethanol in gasoline, known as gasohol or E10, to support this. This change was made largely in part to the efforts of the founding members of the Nebraska Ethanol Board!

EPA’s gasoline standards programs are designed to address ground level ozone or “smog” and to reduce toxic emissions from the fuel burned in cars and trucks. As a result of EPA’s regulatory programs and various state regulations, gasoline sold today in the U.S. is far cleaner than gasoline produced in previous decades. In 2022, the EPA set the highest blend mandate yet at 15 billion gallons. To better understand how ethanol reduces smog formation, check out this video explaining the science behind it.

Almost all of the gasoline supplied in the U.S. today contains 10% ethanol.  Ethanol that meets certain requirements can be considered a renewable fuel under the EPA’s Renewable Fuel Standard Program. In June 2011, the EPA approved blends of 15% ethanol in gasoline for use in model year 2001 and newer passenger cars, light-trucks and medium-duty vehicle. 

 

 

Fuel the Cure is also a proud platinum sponsor of the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in partnership with the American Cancer Society. Walk with us, help fundraise, and educate cancer survivors and thrivers about ethanol! 

Take a step toward a world without cancer by joining us on Oct. 16 at Holmes Lake Park in Lincoln. Celebration begins at 11 a.m.; Walk begins at 1 p.m. Making Strides is a non competitive 5K walk that unites communities to honor and celebrate breast cancer survivors.

Sign up here and you will get a free Fuel the Cure t-shirt. Stop by our sponsor booth to learn about healthier fuel options with ethanol, pick up swag and coupons, and enter to win an ethanol gift card!
