Keep ethanol-free gas widely available
Many car, boat, motorcycle, aircraft and other internal combustion engines require ethanol-free fuel, due to fuel system components or performance requirements. Ethanol-free gasoline is becoming a scarce commodity, largely due to the unintended consequences of the federal RFS mandate in EISA 2007, which was meant to spur E85 production and distribution and sale of flex-fuel vehicles. If ethanol-free gasoline disappears in the retail market, a large number of vehicles will be rendered inoperable or will operate at severely reduced performance and incur higher maintenance costs.
Sign this petition to ask the EPA to ensure that federal ethanol regulations be constructed in a way to guarantee the production and sale of pure premium gasoline!
Dear Ms Jackson -
I operate a vehicle that requires pure, ethanol-free gasoline fuel. Due to the unintended consequence of the federal RFS mandate in EISA 2007, which was meant to spur E85 production and distribution and sales of flex-fuel vehicles, fewer and fewer distributors and retailers provide ethanol-free gasoline. Soon, pure gas will become a thing of the past, and a huge fleet of cars, boats, motorcycles, small aircraft and other internal combustion engine-driven machinery will be rendered inoperable or will accrue higher maintenance costs.
Please update federal regulations to clearly guarantee that refiners and distributors provide ethanol-free premium gasoline to the public. Thank you!
