I had received several reports from the field stating the following: · Consumers can no longer buy the Yukon, Tahoe or Suburban as FFVs. Only fleets, no way around it. · Consumers can buy the Sierra and Silverado as an FFV, but now you have to pay an extra $100 for the option. GM Corporate really beat around the bush on this one, but finally admitted both were true. So, their most popular SUVs ever are not FFVs, despite what they told us and DOE pre-MY15. This will definitely put a dent in FFV numbers for 2015. Robert
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE April 14, 2015 More E85 for California WASHINGTON — Pearson Fuels and G&M Oil Company are celebrating their latest partnership with the grand opening of California’s newest E85 station at 499 Sandalwood Drive in Calimesa.

Ethanol is always catching flack for "subsidies". Most don't realize the Volumetric Ethanol Excise Tax Credit (VEETC) expired in 2011, along with the import tariff and for the most part, the infrastructure tax credit. Some claim the RFS is a subsidy, which is borderline comical. I thought I would share EIA's report from today on energy subsidies. You can see that fossil fuels still dominate all renewables, and ironically this week is also the 113th anniversary of oil subsidies. http://1.usa.gov/1AuIXoq Robert
