SAN Urgent Legislative ALERT: Bill introduced in U.S. House of Representatives to STOP SALE OF E15 Gasoline Pending Scientific Analysis
February 28, 2013 in Automotive Legislation
We need to contact our Congressman and request their support in voting for a Bill introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives to STOP THE SALE OF E-15 Gasoline pending Scientific Analysis of Same! The E-10 Fuel is already causing problems with our Collector Vehicles Fuel Systems and from all Reports E-15 will further damage/corrode those same fuel systems even further. Please join this effort in contacting your Congressman!
Bill Introduced in U.S. House of Representatives to Stop Sale of E15 Gas Pending Scientific Analysis
We Urge You to Contact Your Congressional Representative to Request Support for H.R. 875
- H.R. 875 acknowledges that E15 causes corrosion with incompatible parts. Ethanol increases water formation which can then create formic acid and corrode metals, plastics and rubber. The EPA allows use of E15 in 2001 and newer vehicles, but agreed to make it “illegal to fuel pre-2001 vehicles” with E15. A required warning label on the gasoline pump will not protect consumers from accidentally misfueling these vehicles/engines.
- H.R. 875 prevents the EPA from permitting the sale of E15 before the report from the National Academies has been submitted to the House Science Committee.
- H.R. 875 potentially protects millions of vehicles and engines that can be harmed from E15. The EPA was premature in permitting the sale since it is still unclear how E15 impacts tailpipe and evaporative emissions, OBD systems, materials compatibility and fuel efficiency.
