Florida may end ethanol gas sales

Order Reprints

Legislation to repeal the requirement that all gasoline offered for sale in Florida contain a percentage of ethanol was approved by the House Regulatory Affairs Committee and has been sent to the floor of the Florida House of Representatives for a vote by all members, according to the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA).

Currently, the Florida Renewable Fuels Standard requires that all gasoline sold or offered for sale by a terminal supplier, importer, blender or wholesaler in Florida contain 9–10% ethanol, or other alternative fuel, by volume.

SEMA says the bill recognizes that while the current ethanol mandate does not apply to fuel used in collector vehicles, off-road vehicles, motorcycles or small engines, there has been an inability to obtain unblended gasoline for engines that may be damaged by ethanol.
