Frequent Questions

May RFG that is found to be off-spec downstream of the refinery or import facility be corrected by blending "clean" non-oxygenate blendstocks?

Any party who combines blendstocks other than oxygenate with RFG is producing gasoline, and must meet all the RFG standards and requirements applicable to a refiner. In addition, all applicable RFG standards must be met by the blendstock only. The blendstock, therefore, in effect must be RFG, and such blending is the equivalent of blending RFG with RFG.

A party who does not meet the RFG refiner standards and requirements can take remedial action for RFG that violates applicable standards using the methods discussed above in Question 1.(7/1/94)
