What is an Open Fuel Standard?

The Open Fuel Standard is a bill introduced to Congress several times that would make it mandatory for all cars sold in the United States that are capable of burning gasoline to also be capable of burning ethanol and methanol. It is a minor tweak car companies would have to make and it would have enormous consequences, which you can read more about here: Robust Versus Feeble Competition: A Key Distinction.

Ethanol and methanol can be made cheaper than gasoline, and they burn cleaner. It would end oil's fuel monopoly in America.
