However, because less than half as much ethanol is required to provide the same oxygenating benefit as MTBE, the overall oxygenate content of gasoline is expected to decline through 2006 as ethanol replaces MTBE.
Ethanol is a renewable fuel oxygenate that provides air quality benefits like MTBE while posing very little threat to water quality.
"Oil refiners have the ability to produce gasoline that achieves just as much air pollution reduction without oxygenates such as MTBE, but the law currently mandates their use.
