URGENT FEDERAL LEGISLATIVE ALERT: UPDATE: SAN Again Leads the Way in Preventing EPA from Increasing Ethanol Content in Gasoline

SEMA Action Network
February 16, 2011


The SEMA Action Network (SAN) is urging the United States Congress to support a provision to prevent the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from using designated funds to increase the amount of allowable ethanol content in gasoline to 15% (E15). The SAN contends that this legislation is necessary to protect automotive enthusiasts and consumers from misfueling and other unnecessary harm.

The provision, offered as an amendment to legislation funding the federal government for the remainder of fiscal year 2011, will suspend EPA’s efforts to quickly permit E15 in the marketplace. On behalf of millions of auto enthusiasts across the country, SAN is arguing that more time is needed for the completion of unbiased and independent testing on the impact of E15 on vehicles and engines. The SAN will continue to take proactive steps in Washington, D.C. in support of the hobby to oppose E15 until there are conclusive scientific findings that demonstrate that it will not harm automobiles of any age as a result of corrosion or other chemical incompatibilities.

Please forward this Alert to your fellow car enthusiasts. Urge them to join the SAN and help defend the hobby!
