On March 22nd, Florida legislators will vote on a bill to eliminate the requirement that all gasoline sold in the state be required to have ethanol content...
If You Have Not Done So Already, Please Contact Members of the House Regulatory Affairs Committee (List Below) Immediately to Request Support for H.B. 4001
H.B. 4001 recognizes that ethanol increases water formation which can then create formic acid and corrode metals, plastics and rubber, 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.
H.B. 4001 recognizes that the life span of vehicles and equipment can be dramatically reduced with the wrong fuel and that owners could be confronted with break downs. Anti-corrosion additives are available for each purchase of gasoline but can become expensive, burdensome and require consumer education.
H.B. 4001 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.
DON’T DELAY! Please contact the Florida House Regulatory Affairs Committee members to request support for H.B. 4001. Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please forward this Alert to your fellow car enthusiasts. Urge them to join the SAN and help defend the hobby! Thank you for your assistance.
