Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., has presented a piece of legislation that could block the entrance of fuel with 15% ethanol into the market. The measure seeks to modify the Clean Air Act by preventing the Environmental Protection Agency from granting a waiver to fuel blends that could destroy engines and hamper fuel efficiency. "As Americans everywhere try to get more from less, the EPA should not allow new fuels to come to market that will shorten engine life and force consumers to fuel up more frequently," Sensenbrenner said.
