You may use the following points in your message:

  • S.R. 205 highlights the fact that ethanol, or ethyl alcohol, increases water formation, resulting in the corrosion of metals, plastics, and rubber, especially over time when an engine is not used. 
  • S.R. 205 recognizes that high-performance specialty parts, along with older cars and parts, may be most susceptible to such corrosion. 
  • S.R. 205 acknowledges that the life span of vehicles and equipment can be reduced with use of the wrong fuel and due to the corrosion of integral vehicle and equipment parts, operators could be confronted with breakdowns. 
  • S.R. 205 identifies the fact that there is limited access to unblended gasoline for engines that may be damaged by ethanol, including collector vehicles, off-road vehicles, motorcycles, or small engines.

Overview: Georgia Senate Resolution (S.R. 205) to urge the U.S. Congress to eliminate all requirements for the use of ethanol as a fuel for vehicles and equipment was approved by the Senate Agriculture and Consumer Affairs Committee.  The bill will next be considered by the Rules Committee.
