Taking the attitude of not kidding yourself

August 23, 2013

For the EPA to say it will re-consider its position on ethanol mixed with motor fuels is simply not enough in the view of an Oconee County man who continues his battle against ethanol-blended fuel. Environmental Protection Agency recently announced it will consider lowering the mandated consumption of alternative fuels. But Harry Wertheimer, a retired mechanical engineer who worked in the auto industry, notes an important distinction between considering and actually doing it. For a ‘Community Sound Off’ to air on 96.3/WGOG, Wertheimer describes his disappointment with the country’s lawmakers, but says they face strong lobby groups from the corn states and those who produce ethanol. From his own individual research of ethanol-blended gasoline sold at the pumps, Wertheimer says he’s convinced the blended fuel doesn’t save money or gasoline.
