The EPA approved Clark County’s request to suspend its clean burning gasoline program in 2010 to switch from the Las Vegas blendstock for oxygenate.
Washoe County requires 7.8 psi gasoline from June 1-September 15 to be sold on a retail basis. During that time span, blenders receive a 1.0 psi waiver for ethanol blending. Clark County has relaxed its RVP requirement in the wintertime to 13.5 psi RVP (from 9.0 psi).
Winter oxygenate requirement:
Clark County (Las Vegas) requires gasoline contain 3.5% oxygen from October to March, and Washoe County (Reno) requires gasoline with a minimum of 2.7% oxygen from October to January.
