Ethanol warning

In your Dec. 1 issue Thomas Norton had a brief article, “FAA warns ‘mogas’ users about ethanol.”

I was glad to see an article informing readers about the growing usage of ethanol in auto fuel and how it will violate the STC allowing its use. However, Mr. Norton was in error when he stated that there is a federal requirement for pumps dispensing fuel containing alcohol to be labeled. This is a state by state regulation and not all states have such a requirement. For example, Missouri voters passed a 10% alcohol mandate that began Jan. 1, and Missouri has no such pump labeling requirement.
