New York bill proposes ethanol-free fuel

A bill that would allow marinas in New York to sell E0 gasoline was heard this week by the Assembly Environmental Conservation Committee.

A bill that would allow marinas in New York to sell E0 gasoline, or fuel with no ethanol blended in, was heard this week by the Assembly Environmental Conservation Committee. 

No vote was taken, but documents supporting the bill argued that E0 should be made available because E10, fuel blended with 10 percent ethanol, and above can seriously damage a marine engine, according to the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

The bill also noted that Florida and Virginia already allow for E0 to be sold at marinas. No companion bill has been introduced in the Senate, the NMMA said.
