2. Vote for ethanol
Vote for and donate money to candidates who support ethanol.

4. Fuel your ride with ethanol
Use ethanol-blended fuel each and every time you fill up.
Consider making your next vehicle a Flexible Fuel Vehicle to use E85.

5. Ethanol-ize your local gas station
If your local station offers ethanol, tell them thanks!
If they don't, ask them to add ethanol blends at the pump.
Encourage them to increase consumer choice through blender pumps & mid-range blends.
If they refuse to add ethanol, boycott the station and spread the word.
