The use of alternative fuel – like Ethanol - is on the rise and gaining popularity. However, if you’re current project is not equipped to handle this unconventional fuel, overtime; the fuel can corrode metals, plastics and even rubber fuel lines. Fuel systems and even internal components need to be upgraded in order to handle the different fuel efficiently. Currently, Florida is allowing an Ethanol-blend of fuel (9-10 percent) at a majority of pumps. To ease pain at the pumps, SEMA has announced its support of a new bill (H.B. 4001), which will help eliminate Ethanol and other alternatives from its pumped-fuel.

Of course, action from the public is necessary. The SEMA Action Network lobbies to help keep our hobby alive and healthy. That said, SEMA Action Network needs your help and urges you to get in contact with members of the Environmental Preservation and Conservation and the Communications, Energy, and Public Utilities Committees in support of H.B. 4001.
