Is it possible to get an exemption to use conventional gasoline in an RFG covered area for testing purposes?

The RFG regulations do not provide an exemption from the RFG requirements for testing purposes. However, EPA would consider allowing the use of conventional gasoline in an RFG covered area for purposes of a testing program if sufficient information is provided to EPA to verify the necessity of using non-RFG. Parties interested in pursuing such an allowance should contact Marilyn Bennett at (202) 233-9006.(1/30/95)
