The Iowa Renewable Fuels Association said Tuesday it expects other car brands to join General Motors and Ford Motor Co. in recommending E15 for their new vehicles.

Ford has recommended the 15 percent ethanol blend for its 2013 vehicles, while GM recommends it for 2012 and newer vehicles, the association said.

The Environmental Protection Agency last week approved labeling and other requirements to prevent “misfueling” vehicles with E15, the last step in the regulatory process to allow the sale of E15 for mainstream vehicles, in mid-June .

Iowa Renewable Fuels Association President Monte Shaw commended Ford and GM for their leadership, adding that he expects other automakers to follow their lead.
