The Minnesota legislature introduced SEMA-opposed legislation (A.B. 3256) to increase the standard biofuel blend in gasoline to 15% ethanol. There is currently a 10% state-wide standard.

Minnesota currently has an exemption in place for those selling or dispensing limited quantities of nonoxygenated gas for collector vehicles. This legislation would create a similar exemption for vehicles not approved to use more than 10% biofuel, which includes all model-year ’00 and older vehicles.  

H.F. 3699/S.F. 3605 await consideration in the House Agriculture and Food Finance and Policy Division and Senate Commerce and Consumer Protection Finance and Policy Committee respectively.
