U.S. Congress Introduces Bill to Reform Ethanol Mandate

Legislation (HR 704) has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives to prohibit the sale of E15 (gasoline that is 15% ethanol) and eliminate the federal Renewable Fuel Standard’s (RFS) mandate that 15 billion gallons of corn-based ethanol be blended into the U.S. fuel supply each year.  The EPA has turned to sales of E15 to achieve the law’s artificial mandate.  Ethanol, especially in higher concentrations such as E15, can cause damage to older vehicles. 

Please Contact Your Member of Congress (contact information below) to Request Support for HR 704

  • Ethanol can cause metal corrosion and dissolve certain plastics and rubbers, especially in older vehicles that were not constructed with ethanol-compatible materials.
  • HR 704 would eliminate the unrealistic mandates imposed under the RFS such as requiring refiners to blend 36 billion gallons of biofuels by 2022.
  • HR 704 would prohibit the sale of E15 gas in order to help meet the artificial RFS deadlines.
  • HR 704 would protect older vehicles from the risks posed by E15. 
DON’T DELAY!  Please contact your Member of Congress in Washington, DC immediately to request their support for RFS reform.  Please email a copy of your letter to Eric Snyder at  Also, please forward this Alert to your fellow automotive enthusiasts.  Urge them to join the SAN and help defend the hobby!  Thank you for your assistance.
