SurveyAmericans prefer flexible fuel vehicles, cleaner fuel

According to a recent survey, 80% of Americans prefer ethanol and alternative fuel vehicles over traditional vehicles and fuel.

The survey, sponsored by American Lung Association of Minnesota, polled 1,651 vehicle owners, of which 92% said they prefer flexible fuel vehicles (FFV) and 60% prefer E85 for use in FFVs.

"This survey clearly shows more and more consumers are becoming more aware of the cleaner, greener vehicles and homegrown renewable fuels options available to them," Bruce Noel, National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) Ethanol Committee chairman, said in a statement.

Noel said NCGA and state corn grower organizations are continuing the push to ensure legislation and the education of consumers is in place to advance the ethanol industry and bring E85 to every part of the country. Currently, there are more than 700 refueling locations, and Noel said corn growers are working to ramp up the production of ethanol and are working to ensure the increased availability and infrastructure for E85.

The survey was conducted by Phoenix Automotive, a Birmingham, Michigan-based division of Phoenix Marketing International, on behalf of the American Lung Association of Minnesota.
