URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (UPDATE)
Texas Bill to Eliminate Ethanol in Gasoline Dies as Legislature Adjourns
Legislation (H.B. 1693) to prohibit the sale of motor fuel with an ethanol mixture died when the Legislature adjourned for the year. The bill recognized that ethanol fuels cause problems with fuel pumps, fuel gauges, as well as other engine performance issues, especially over a period of time when the vehicle is not used. Current high performance specialty parts along with pre-model year 2001 cars and parts may be most susceptible to corrosion. The measure also acknowledged that ethanol has been shown to decrease fuel mileage.
Thank you to those who participated in supporting this bill..
