Ethers, particularly Methyl Tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) and Tertio Amyl Methyl Ether (TAME), have long been used in reformulated gasoline owing to their attractive blending and engine burning characteristics.

Indirect incorporation of ethanol via the etherification routes producing Ethyl Tertiary Butyl Ether (ETBE) or Tertio Amyl Ethyl Ether (TAEE) is an interesting option for sustainable gasoline production as these materials boast excellent blending and engine burning properties.
