Florida is the First!!!!!

Governor Scott signed the repeal of the renewable fuel mandate. Florida will be alcohol free, other states now need to follow suit and put an end to the farce that was forced on the American People for so long now. Alcohol and Gas was a bad idea from the get go!

Re: Florida is the First!!!!!

Sort of....kind of.... while Florida repealed their renewable fuel mandate, they said it was because it duplicated the Federal mandate, which is still in place.

So, what does this really mean?

If you were REALLY worried about your fuel milage you wouldn't drive such a gas hog.

Re: Florida is the First!!!!!

Um, is this sailing related? Seems political or, at least, off-topic.
