Forcing the automobile industry to apply to standards the federal government should be rolling back, is extremely dangerous to the economy. This again is nothing but an enviormentalist smoke dream and has nothing to do with independence from oil. What is so "OPEN" about this legislation? It is just another weight on the auto industry (like fuel economy standards) that is impossible to fulfill.

My name is Jason and I believe in this act whole heartedly unlike the anonymous poster from above who is scared about his precious oil profits. I hope he isn't anonymous when he tells his grandchildren about being a fool and not supporting this bill and ruining the world further.

This has nothing to do with mandating. It provides a mechanism to promote competition, something that will drive down fuel costs and cut dependence on OPEC-imported oil. There is a wide array of coalitional groups that support this, from both the left and right of the political spectrum.

Right now we have no legal choices. Our government has turned us into OPEC’s indentured servants. Just try to not use gasoline and see how far your car will drive. Hopes & dreams won’t get you very far, but we could easily all run on alcohol. Some of us already do, why not our cars as well? In many ways, the EPA is stopping E85 conversion kits from becoming mass adopted. So OEM is the only way to make this happen. Remember that big automotive industry bailout a few years ago? GM said 50% of vehicles would be flexible fuel vehicles by 2012, because that’s what the American people wanted (to hear). Only 10% of their sales were FFV last year. Additionally, they only put FFVs in their largest vehicles, why not their 4 cylinders? They got rid of the HHR and only sell the FFV Malibu to fleets. Look at Ford’s latest engine offering with the EcoBoost. Any FFVs there? I have personally tuned & converted my vehicle over to run on ethanol mixtures (E10-E70) and will continue to use American fuel.
