If passed into law, the act would transition country's gasoline supply to a higher octane so greenhouse gas emissions could be reduced by 40 to 43 pct while increasing fuel efficiency, according to the group release.
"When you pull up to the pump you would see a research octane number (RON) that we're advocating for which is 98 RON and it's aimed at increasing efficiency in engines. To increase efficiency in engines you have to have more octane and when you get to E25 and E30, that's really where we see the sweet spot for finding the most efficiencies", NCGA market development director Jeff Wilkerson said.
