A few exemptions to the standard will allow gasoline without ethanol to be sold:
- When ethanol blends purchased at wholesale exceed the price of gasoline
- When selling premium unleaded gasoline with an octane rating of 91 or higher
- Gasoline sold at airports
Although premium is exempted from the requirement, it may be blended with ethanol.
Most retailers in Missouri have already made the switch to the cleaner burning, renewable fuel known as E10 (10% ethanol, 90% gasoline). Missouri joins Minnesota and Hawaii to require the E10 blend. However, the fuel is becoming more common around the country as states look to clean their air quality with the cleaner burning fuel.
