Indiana Bill Would Extend Misfueling Immunity to Mid-Level Blends

Submitted by on February 8, 2016 – 3:46 pmNo Comment

by Erin Voegele (Ethanol Producer Magazine)  In mid-January, a congressman in the Indiana General Assembly introduced a bill that aims to increase use of ethanol-blended fuels by expanding immunity for the misuse of blended fuel.

The legislation, H.B. 1364, was introduced by Indiana Rep. Don Lehe on Jan. 12 and referred to the Committee on Judiciary. Reps. Beumer and Niezgodski later signed on to co-sponsor the measure.

The text of the bill includes several provisions that aim to promote the use of ethanol. This includes removing the definitions of “E85” motor fuel and “flexible fuel vehicle” and creating a definition for “blended fuel” that states blended fuel refers to a fuel that contains not more than 85 percent ethanol and not less than 10 percent ethanol. Immunity protections currently in place for the misuse of E85 would be replaced with immunity protections for the misuse of the newly defined blended fuel.

Additional information on the bill is available on the Indiana General Assembly website.  READ MORE
