Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB) Publishes a New National Standard of Canada for Automotive Fuel

The Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB) has published CAN/CGSB-3.512-2011 Automotive Ethanol Fuel (E50 -E85). This standard applies to automotive fuel composed of 50 to 85% by volume denatured fuel ethanol and gasoline strictly for use in flexible fuel vehicles over a wide range of climatic conditions.

This standard was prepared and approved by the CGSB Standards Committee on Gasoline and Alternative Automotive Fuels and was published in February 2011.
