Our Purpose

Thursday, May 19, 2011

The purpose of OpenFuelStandard.org is to provide information to citizens who want to help the Open Fuel Standard Act become law. We will be publishing posts that provide three things:

1. Practical actions you can take that will help pass the Open Fuel Standard Act.

2. Information to further educate you on the Open Fuel Standard.

3. Posts you can forward to your friends and family to educate them about the Open Fuel Standard.

We strongly urge you to subscribe to the email updates to make sharing the information easy. Click here to subscribe. Also, please "like" our Facebook page by clicking here and follow us on Twitter by clicking here. Thank you.

If you already understand how important the bill is and want to do something to help make it happen, start here.

If you want to become more informed about why the Open Fuel Standard is so important, check out our list of recommended books, articles, and online videos here.

And if you've been in conversations and sometimes get questions you have trouble answering, check out our Answers to Questions page.

Alot of corn is going to meet the flex fuel demand. This in turn has caused the price of feed for livestock to go up and the cost is passed on to the consumer at the grocery store. Not so sure I support this fully.

Support this act so that we can bring methanol and biogasoline to Michigan and the rest of the country. We have been operating our plant here:


We continue to need support for open fuels and giving options to the consumer to select low cost flex fuels.

Alot of corn will not be used. Its too expensive. But other sources such as Methonal from gas will be big winners. For all the 99%'s out there who are so against big business and big oil, here is your chance to get behind something to really open up the market. Imagine having the choice at pump(or different stations) where you could choose your fuel type! Amazing..this is a no brainer.

Seems a good idea. The standard would allow methanol from coal, gas or bio waste to be used as fuel. The problems of converting grass or wood, as well as corn, to fuel would be solved. One could even use nuclear power !shock! !horror! to drive the conversion of the above, or nuclear electricity to convert CO2 from industrial plants or seawater to methanol. You'll note that, at present, K C Tran's plant in Iceland is using geothermal power to produce methanol from CO2 and electricity.

Against this bill. Legislating that car manufactures must produce and sell alternative fuel vehicles will ultimately cost the consumer in the long run.

Let the Free Market decide. Companies like Tesla will either make it on their own or not.

If Alternative fuel vehicles are cheaper and better for the consumer, they will ultimately win out.

If the free market was allowed to work, I would be all in favor of letting the market decide. Unfortunately, gasoline has a monopoly with almost every car, and OPEC is exploiting our one-fuel economy to the detriment of the USA. Read more:
