Proposed Amendments to the Fuel Rating Rule, FTC File No. R811005

I find your proposed labels regarding ethanol additions to motor fuel as very negative and detrimental to advancing the renewable fuels industry. Ethanol's 113 octane rating snd excellent qualities are what helps clean up gasolines low quality low octane. Please consider the affect your label will have on the uninformed consumer. Minnesota has 15+ years of successful experience utilizing the benefits of ethanol blended fuels. I personally have 10+ year running E85 in four different vehicles with no negative impact. My present vehicle which was purchased new has 72,000 miles almost all on E85, with no fuel related impacts. Thank you
