Know the dangers of ethanol gasoline.
Simply put, ethanol is an excellent SOLVENT (dissolves plastic, rubber, fiberglass and more), CLEANSER, DRYING AGENT and unlike MTBE ethanol will ABSORB WATER, which can cause serious problems to some engines.

Example(s): Ethanol will dissolve resins that create a black sludge that coats and travels through the engine, causing engine stalling and complications, including clogged fuel filters, carburetor jets and injectors.  Ethanol burns at higher temp causing damage to pistons. Ethanol dries out and disintegrates many rubber and plastic parts and hoses in engine.  Ethanol will release rust, debris, sediment (just about anything that has accumulated in engine) and release this gunk - clogging and damaging many engine components and filters.

Know Your State Ethanol Laws

- Fuel-Up and Know Your State's Renewable & Alternative Energy Policies -

Everyday we receive requests for fuel laws from the public.  Supplying this information is time-consuming since fuel laws are constantly changing and energy policies are different in each state.

The Federal government and EPA issues policies, requirements and guidelines that must be adhered to; But the fuel/energy laws that affect consumers the most are determined and enacted by each individual state.

With volumes of information to sort and condense it will take time to include the most important information on this website.
In time we hope to complete a separate page for each and every state.

Know Both Federal & State Laws...

There's lots of exciting news going on right now regarding the development of future energy sources, that will offer many advantages.
The U.S. is finally realizing that conventional gasoline needs to be replaced with something else.  We can no longer ignore the drawbacks of petroleum - Including pollution, emissions, dependence on foreign countries, rising cost, etc.

In the meantime consumers must be aware of the specific ethanol (renewable, reformulated, oxygenating) gasoline laws for their area -

Federal and state laws have changed significantly regarding ethanol, during the transition from MTBE to Ethanol for fuel oxygenation.

E10 Sticker Labeling Laws

The Federal government (EPA) Standards do NOT require labeling when ethanol alcohol is added to fuel.

Each state decides whether or not to label gas pumps with an E10 sticker.
Only 8 states always label to inform and warn customers that gas contains alcohol. About 13 states do NOT require E10 pump labels to inform and warn consumers that gasoline contains ethanol alcohol...

The states that do NOT require labeling gas pump with an E10 sticker include:
California, District of Columbia - DC, Indiana - IN, Kansas - KS, Kentucky - KY, Maryland - MD, Michigan - MI, Minnesota - MN, Missouri - MO, Nevada - NV, New Jersey - NJ, New Hampshire - NH, Ohio - OH, Oklahoma - OK.
(North Carolina - NC House Bill 187 passed in 2011 now requires labeling but "not enforced".)
