The Open Fuel Standard Act of 2011

View a PDF of the Open Fuel Standard Act

A bipartisan group of US Representatives introduced a bill that could expand fueling options at gas station's nationwide. The Open Fuel Standard Act (HR 1687) would require that 50% of new automobiles in 2014, 80% in 2016, and 95% in 2017, would be able to operate on nonpetroleum fuels in addition to or instead of petroleum based fuels.

The choice of fuels includes flex fuel (gasoline, ethanol and methanol), natural gas, hydrogen, biodiesel, plug-in electric, and fuel cell. Lawmakers say the requirement will provide certainty to investors to produce alternative fuels and fueling stations.

Rep. John Shimkus (R-IL19) introduced the bill. Cosponsors so far: Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD6), Howard Berman (D-CA28), Earl Blumenauer (D-OR3), Bruce Braley (D-IA1), Tom Cole (R-OK4), Eliot Engel (D-NY17), Steve Israel (D-NY2), Henry Johnson (D-GA4), David Loebsack (D-IA2), Collin Peterson (D-MN7), and Dennis Ross (R-FL12).

EXCERPT - The Plan To Destroy OPEC

by Alan Walters [Los Angeles CA (SPX) Nov 27, 2007]

   Venezuela's Hugo Chavez says he wants to send oil to $200 a barrel. Robert Zubrin has a plan to stop him. In his just released book, Energy Victory: Winning the War on Terror by Breaking Free of Oil, Zubrin, an American aerospace engineer known previously primarily for his inventive approach to Mars exploration, lays out the strategy.
   To say the book is remarkable, would be a severe understatement. Combining soaring idealism, incisive thinking, and a viscous go-for-throat killer instinct in a single package, Energy Victory is the first book I have ever read that actually lays out a credible plan to turn around the world energy situation.

About the Program

Robert Zubrin argues that the United States is subsidizing a war against itself because of its dependence on oil, a resource controlled by its enemies. He says that if Congress passed a law requiring all new cars sold in the United States to be flexible fueled, OPEC's control on the world's transportation fuel supply would be diminished. This event was hosted by the Ethics and Public Policy Center in Washington, DC.
