Delphi fuel pumps compatible with new E15 measure from EPA

Delphi announced that its OE quality fuel products are compatible with the new E15 measure approved last Friday by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to increase the amount of ethanol currently blended in fuel from 10% to 15% for all light-duty vehicles built in the last decade.

This includes approximately 166 SKUs covering 32 million vehicles from 2001 to current model year. Delphi says that its fuel pumps can accept up to 20% ethanol (E20) for those model years.

The fact that we are working on these technologies for current and future platforms for global OEMs, we are prepared to quickly meet changes in government regulations such as the E15 measure in the aftermarket. Delivering green technologies to consumers is a main strategic focus for Delphi; through the vehicle manufacturers and the aftermarket. Key drivers in developing these technologies are increased vehicle performance, better fuel economy and maintaining emissions regulations for all fuel types.

—Frank Ordoñez, president, Delphi Product & Service Solutions

In the United States, Delphi has supplied E85-compatible technology to more than two million vehicles and has delivered E15-compatible fuel pumps to General Motors since 1992. In South America, Delphi has produced systems and components for more than 430,000 ethanol compatible vehicles since 1991. Delphi’s gasoline fuel injection systems sold worldwide have been upgraded to deliver 100,000 mile plus durability on E25, even with realistic levels of impurities.
