Current Regulations: Kansas City had a summer max. 7.2 psi RVP gasoline standard. Effective summer 2001, Kansas City reduced its RVP standard to 7.0 psi. See Kansas Administrative Regulations 28-19-719.

SB 37, as amended and signed by the Governor on April 19, 2001, caps MTBE at 0.5 vol% on July 1, 2004. However, this provision shall not take effect until EPA grants Kansas a waiver to control or prohibit MTBE in gasoline. See 55-527 of Kansas Statutes. 

In a multi-state letter dated 8/31/17, to address a fuel supply emergency caused by Hurricane Harvey, EPA allowed 11.5 psi RVP gasoline throughout the state through September 15.  

Fuel quality testing is conducted as part of the Weights and Measures program of the KS Department of Agriculture.
