Texas Bill to Eliminate Ethanol in Gasoline to be Considered on Wednesday, April 29, 2015

 

Legislation (H.B. 1693) to prohibit the sale of motor fuel with an ethanol mixture will be considered by the House Agriculture and Livestock Committee on Wednesday, April 29, 2015. 

If You Have Not Done So Already, Please Contact Members of the House Agriculture and Livestock Committee (List Below) Immediately to Request Support for H.B. 1693

  • H.B. 1693 recognizes that ethanol fuels cause problems with fuel pumps, fuel gauges, as well as other engine performance issues, 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. 1693 acknowledges that ethanol has been shown to decrease fuel mileage.   
     
  • H.B. 1693 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.

DON’T DELAY!  Please contact House Agriculture and Livestock Committee members to request support for H.B. 1693.  Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at stevem@sema.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.
