Department of Energy not providing any new money for E85 stations in 2007
Recently, Underwriters Labs backed off on certification of complete ethanol compatible fueling systems because they determined that they needed more information about the corrosion resistance of the complete systems. The US Department of Energy has been providing grants to stations to help cover the cost of adding E85 pumps. Last September they gave out $5.4 million to the National Ethanol Vehicle Coalition to distribute to stations. Unfortunately, that amount turned out to be the full amount of funds available for the 2006 and 2007 fiscal years and there are now no additional funds available until 2008. NEVC won't be able to help out any additional stations with E85 installations until next year, unless Congress approves additional funding for the program.
