27c                                        Our Mission

To bring about the use of E100, gasoline free ethanol, as a primary motor fuel in the United States using E100 engines optimized for ethanol and not gasoline.

There are 5 main reasons why it is important  for the US to do this:

1. Climate Change caused by CO2 emissions
2. American Security - both environmental and economic
3. Economic and cultural costs of fluctuating gasoline prices.
4. Create short term employment  for constructing ethanol plants and long term, permanent employment for producing ethanol.
5. Provide consumers a choice between oil and ethanol companies for  setting the price of motor fuel.

                                                Definition

E100 is:
    98/2 mixture of ethanol/iso-propyl alcohol or ether* with 10 ppm     
DNB** (approved as motor fuel under 27 CFR 19.746)

** DNB- denatonium benzoate - bitter tasting substance to denature the            alcohol so it cannot be ingested.

Ether approved on June 26, 2018.
