The Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) and the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) have sent a letter to Sen. Mark Dayton praising his introduction of legislation that would require all motor vehicles sold in the United Stated to be "flexible fuel" -- capable of using conventional gasoline, E85 (85% ethanol) or any mixture of the two.

The letter stated, in part: "Given our country's growing reliance on imported energy from unstable regions of the world, it is extremely timely that we seek innovative ways to increase consumption of domestically produced renewable fuels such as ethanol and biodiesel. Expanded FFV production would enhance our nation's ability to confront future energy crises and give consumers an important tool to moderate fuel prices."

The letter was signed by RFA president Bob Dinneen and NCGA president Leon Corzine.
