The American Petroleum Institute held a press conference recently announcing data on E-15 from the Coordinating Research Council - which shows a lack of testing on the alternative fuel.

However - Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis says this study is no surprise and is a classic example of he who pays the piper calls the tune.

Buis says oil companies are desperate to prevent the use of higher blends of renewable fuels and have deep pockets in which to fund studies that he describes as incomplete and cherry picking.

In fact - he says the truth is E-15 is the most tested fuel to date - with more than 6-million miles of testing by the Energy Department and more than 3-million miles run on the demanding race tracks of NASCAR without engine problems or damage.
