California Ethanol Compatibility Chart

Posted by lgrainawi on 11/22/2010 1:29:00 PM

Quickly reacting to the new legalized selling of E15, the State of California began collecting compatibility data from equipment manufacturers immediately.  Even though all steel tanks are compatible with all blends of ethanol fuel, STI developed the following chart to help California compile a compatibility chart for all required UST equipment. California’s guidelines are whatever the manufacturers recommended or warranted up to June, 1991.  After that date, UL Listings are looked at first to make the determination if the equipment is compatible.
