1/ This table shows Federal Highway Administration estimates of gasohol use. The gasohol volumes shown include both the ethanol and the gasoline components. The Energy Policy Act of 1992 expanded the definition of gasohol effective January 1, 1993. Prior to the Act, gasohol was defined as a blend of gasoline and at least 10 percent, by volume, fuel alcohol. Under the Act, three types of gasohol were defined: (1) 10 percent gasohol, which corresponds to the definition before the Act; (2) 7.7 percent gasohol, which contains at least 7.7 percent alcohol but less than 10 percent; and (3) 5.7 percent gasohol which contains at least 5.7 percent alcohol but less than 7.7 percent.

2/ The amount of ethanol used in gasohol is estimated from gasohol tax collections, refunds, and credits reported by the Internal Revenue Service, U.S. Department of the Treasury.

3/ For most States, the figures shown for 10-percent blends are State data.4/ Use of 7.7 percent gasohol generally meets the requirements for oxygenated fuel to reduce winter carbon monoxide emissions.

4/ Use of 7.7 percent gasohol generally meets the requirements for oxygenated fuel to reduce winter carbon monoxide emissions.
