The Mississippi State Chemical Laboratory (MSCL), authorized by Sections 57-21-1 et seq., Mississippi Code of 1972 as a regulatory agency, works to ensure quality labeling and safety of all petroleum related products sold in the State of Mississippi and to support the regulatory actions of the Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce. Therefore as a regulatory agency which regulates gasoline, we will like that the label should include the following: - WARNING - FOR FLEXIBLE FUEL VEHICLES ONLY. - "Exact" ethanol concentrations as the Tennessee Department of Agriculture suggested. - Don't use in other vehicles, boats, or gasoline-powered equipment. It may cause damages - For E-15 an additional statement should be included: "Use only in 2001 and newer passenger vehicles." For the use of using infrared for octane ratings, we are for it as long as there are frequent checks of the results with octane engines.
