North Carolina proposes ethanol labels

Three North Carolina lawmakers introduced a bill in the General Assembly that requires the Gasoline and Oil Inspection Board to adopt rules to require labels for all dispensing pumps and other dispensing devices that offer ethanol-blended gasoline for retail sale in the state, the National Marine Manufacturers Association reported.

Although pump labeling is one step in preventing misfueling, the NMMA remains concerned that there are no additional significant controls to protect boaters from incompatible fuels, the association said.
