The Reformulated Gasoline Program requires the use of reformulated gasoline, which burns cleaner and reduces smog (ozone)-forming pollutants, in cities with the worst smog pollution. The federal RFG program was introduced in 1995; RFG is currently used in 17 states and the District of Columbia. About 30 percent of gasoline sold in the U.S. is reformulated. Oil companies are responsible for preparing their own formula that must meet federal emission reduction standards.
