Big ethanol was dealt a serious blow in the Iowa Caucus when an open opponent of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) won the GOP contest by historic margins. Now, people across the country are learning the truth about ethanol-blended fuel mandated by the RFS. As the election moves to key boating states, such as Florida, the truth is clearer than ever.
