Statement on Executive Order to Green Federal Fleet

Growth Energy released the following statement in response to the President’s Executive Order to use more fuel efficient vehicles in the federal fleet, like Flex Fuel vehicles, and to encourage the development of Flex Fuel pumps.

“This demonstrates the Administration’s consistent commitment to reducing our dependence on foreign oil by promoting the use of domestically-produced alternative fuels like ethanol in the federal automotive fleet. Ethanol is the most affordable alternative to oil, and is the only commercially-viable alternative we have to oil today. By ordering the purchase of Flex Fuel vehicles capable of running on a range of ethanol blends, and encouraging installation of Flex Fuel pumps, this Executive Order will help us achieve the President’s energy security goal of reducing our dependence on foreign oil.”
