Support for ethanol in fuels eroding

Two recent articles in the New York Times chronicle eroding public support for ethanol production mandates and its use in vehicle fuels:

“A Growing Disaster”, by Russell Harding, 11/28/2009

“US Unlikely to use the Ethanol Congress Ordered”, Matthew Wald, 11/26/2009

The GAfuels Blog is written by three private pilots concerned about the future availability of fuels for piston-engine aircraft. They are:

  • Dean Billing (Sisters, Ore.) – an expert on autogas and ethanol
  • Kent Misegades (Cary, N.C.) – an aerospace engineer and aviation journalist
  • Todd Petersen (Minden, Neb.) – former aerial applicator and owner of more than 150 Mogas STCs for aircraft

For a list of airports that have ethanol-free fuel and those no longer pumping it, compiled by the authors, follow this link.
