* We urge commenters to include details, data or specific examples in support of their need to purchase and use gasoline that does not contain ethanol alcohol.
Only stating "I want non-ethanol fuel", will not be nearly as effective to encourage legislation that will guarantee your right to this fuel type, as when you state "I require ethanol-free fuel because my specific XYZ model engine requires it and I've experienced these (specific) negative effects as a result of ethanol-free fuel being no longer in my speciifc "Anywhere USA 01234" location...
The data obtained from identifying, analyzing, summarizing and presenting the specific problems/obstacles/inconvenience/expense E10/E15 fuel has caused to so many,
will have a huge impact on the future decisions rendered by the EPA and others in the ethanol and fuel industry.

As a consumer, I should be able to decide and buy my choice for the best fuel type, recommended by my engine's manufacturer for all of my gas-powered motors. Today, the EPA, ACE, ethanol producers, and other government, private and public companies, control that decision.
My right to choose NON-ethanol fuel (gasoline without alcohol) has been in recent years limited, controlled or taken away by those companies and regulating agencies who wrongly believe that the E10 fuel type is safe, appropriate and manufacturer-approved for all conventional engine types.
The EPA's recent unwarranted approval and introduction of a new conventional E15 gas type which will contain 50% more ethanol than approved by all current manufacturer recommendations/warranties, is further substantiation that choosing the most appropriate gas type at the pump should be determined by the engine owner. For those who choose to use higher ethanol blends, it should only be allowed in manufacturer-approved engines with E85 fuel (85% ethanol) used only in specially-designed flex fuel vehicles.
I own or use engine(s) that require and/or perform best on NON-alcohol fuel types, including:
(Include engine year, type, model and manufacturer gas recommendations, if applicable)
Due to the limitation of only ethanol-blends (E10 gas) being sold in my neighborhood of, _________________________
I have experienced negative and unnecessary consequences and added expense. (Include town, county, state).
Details of problem(s) caused by ethanol alcohol added to conventional gasoline included below or attached.
* Yes ___ No____ N/A____
Widespread availability of "premium" alcohol-free gasoline is one of many simple and effective solutions to assure appropriate fuel choices for all U.S. consumers.
I request the EPA pass regulations that would guarantee both "choice and availability" of a non-ethanol fuel type at public gas station pumps.
By signing this petition, I join thousands of other voices that believe the EPA must immediately take action to protect my right and freedom to choose a non-ethanol gas type, by requiring the availability of an alcohol-free gas pump in every town and/or 10 mile radius area where gas is sold to the public.
