RVP… “Easy as… 15, 13.5, 9, 7.8”

By: Daniel Guttman / Posted on: April 5, 2019

     According to the EPA, RVP is an abbreviation for Reid Vapor Pressure, a common measure of and generic term for gasoline volatility. EPA regulates the vapor pressure of gasoline sold at retail stations during the summer ozone season (June 1 to September 15), to reduce evaporative emissions from gasoline that contribute to ground-level ozone and diminish the effects of ozone-related health problems.
