10 percent renewable fuel required for motor vehicles

Section 211 of the Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C. 7545) is amended by redesignating subsection (o) as (p) and by inserting the following new subsection after subsection (n):


10 percent renewable fuel requirement

After December 31, 2009, it shall be unlawful for any person to sell or offer for sale, supply, or offer for supply, dispense, transport, or introduce into commerce, for use in any motor vehicle (as defined in section 216(2)) any gasoline containing less than 10 percent renewable fuel by volume. For purposes of enforcing the preceding sentence, a blend of gasoline and renewable fuel shall be considered to be in compliance with this subsection if the renewable fuel content, exclusive of denaturants and permitted contaminants, comprises not less than 9.2 percent by volume and not more than 10 percent by volume of the blend as determined by the Administrator. The Administrator shall, by rule effective January 1, 2010, require that each bill of lading or shipping manifest for all gasoline containing renewable fuel and all gasoline not containing renewable fuel indicate the renewable fuel content of the gasoline. The Administrator shall provide, by rule, for appropriate notices to be displayed on gasoline pumps indicating the renewable fuel content of the gasoline and notifying the public of the prohibition contained in this subsection. Such rules shall also provide an exemption from the requirements of this subsection in the case of gasoline for use in collector motor vehicles, as defined by the Administrator.
