Thumbs down Bill to Restrict Consumer Information on Ethanol in Gasoline to be Considered in NE


Legislation (L.B. 698) to change labeling requirements on gas pumps across the state so that labeling is only required when gasoline contains 11% or more alcohol has been introduced in Nebraska. A previous version of the bill eliminated labeling requirements all together. Current law in Nebraska requires labeling when gasoline contains 1% or more alcohol, including labels for pumps dispensing E10. If enacted, the bill would make it impossible for enthusiasts to know whether the gasoline they put into their vehicles contains any ethanol, making it possible to misfuel the vehicle and cause engine damage. The bill has been approved by the Agriculture Committee and is pending on the floor of the Nebraska Legislature. You have a right to know what blend of ethanol you are putting in your older collector cars!

We Urge You to Contact All Members of the Nebraska Legislature (List Below) to Request Their Opposition to L.B. 698

Ethanol increases water formation in the fuel system, especially when the vehicle sits over a period of time. Under these conditions, formic acid is created which corrodes metals, plastics and rubber. This can lead to engine/parts failures and, potentially, safety hazards.

Many products in the marketplace, including older cars (your special interest collector and historic vehicles), use materials that are incompatible with ethanol.

In addition to the potential harm of ethanol blended gasoline on some engine components, Nebraska has no procedure in place to ensure misfueling does not occur or any plan to guarantee gasoline without ethanol will be available for older vehicles.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has been urged to create national labeling requirements for ethanol blended gasoline that are placed as close as possible to the pump’s product selection mechanism, but since such requirements are not currently in place, vehicle owners must rely on state labeling requirements for information about the gasoline they use in their vehicles.
DON’T DELAY! Please contact members of the Nebraska State Legislature immediately by phone or e-mail to request their opposition to L.B. 698. Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at [email protected]. Thank you for your assistance.
