SEMA Urgent Action: Congress Introduces Bill to Help Prevent E15 (Ethanol) Misfuelling

This latest alert from SEMA crossed the HRH desktop:

"Legislation (H.R. 5855) has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives that would require a larger and more detailed warning label on gas pumps dispensing E15 (gasoline that’s 15% ethanol) than is currently required, to help prevent misfuelling. The bill states that labels must provide an adequate warning to consumers about the damage E15 can cause, including images and text on a label that’s 5 x 7 or larger, and highlighting that E15 is incompatible with certain engines and equipment. Ethanol, especially in higher concentrations such as E15, can cause metal corrosion and dissolve certain plastics and rubbers in automobiles that were not constructed with ethanol-resistant materials."
