EPA Proposes Ethanol|Blend Warning Labels

WASHINGTON (CN) - Gas stations may sell gasoline with up to 15 percent ethanol content as long as the pumps distributing the gas have warning labels that clearly indicate the fuel should only be used in vehicles of model year 2007 or newer, according to regulations proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency.

The labels would tell consumers what the maximum amount of ethanol allowed in a fuel mixture is, what vehicles the fuel is approved for use in, a warning of the potential damage that might occur from using the fuel mixture and a warning that using the fuel in vehicles not approved by the EPA is prohibited.

The agency is seeking public comments on the proposed rules and will hold public hearing for those wishing to testify on the proposed rules.
