As a result of regulated renewable fuel requirements the fuel commonly available in retail pumps will typically contain up to 5% renewable content (or up to B5) in diesel and up to 10% ethanol (up to E10) in gasoline. Blends above B5 or E10 will be labeled as such, allowing the consumer to choose the appropriate fuel for their equipment. Higher blends (B20 to B80 or higher, and E85) may be available for informed consumers, including underground mining operations, agricultural users, transport companies or other operations with special needs.
