§ 4.1. (a) Upon any retail motor fuel dispensing device which is used to dispense a motor
fuel containing at least 1% by volume of ethanol, of methanol, or of a combination
thereof, there shall be displayed a label which identifies the maximum percentage
by volume, to the nearest whole percent, of ethanol, of methanol, and of co-solvent
contained in the motor fuel. Such labelling shall be done in contrasting colors with block letters at least
1/2 inch in height and 1/4 inch in width, and not more than one inch in height and 1/2 inch in width, and shall be visible to customers. The label shall be located on the front or sides of the dispenser and within the
top 30 percent of the height of the dispenser. On a dual-faced dispenser, the label shall be affixed on each front or each side
in accordance with these requirements. Devices used to dispense only motor fuels which contain a total of less than 1%
by volume of methanol and ethanol need not be so labelled.
(b) Each seller of a motor fuel which contains methanol, ethanol, or biodiesel shall
notify the purchaser thereof of the percentage by volume of ethanol, of methanol,
of biodiesel, and of co-solvent which have been added to such motor fuel, and this
information shall appear on the bill of lading, manifest or delivery ticket for such
motor fuel. However, this subsection (b) shall not apply to sales at retail.
(c) No motor fuel, whether or not it contains any lead or lead compounds, may contain
more ethanol or methanol than is permitted, or contain less co-solvent than is required,
by the United States Environmental Protection Agency for unleaded motor fuels under
Section 211(f) of the federal Clean Air Act. 1
(d) All motor fuel sold or offered for sale by the distributor shall contain the percentage
and type of alcohol as stated on the bill of lading, manifest or delivery ticket.
(f) Nothing in this Section shall be construed to require or impose an obligation
upon the owner or operator of a retail motor fuel dispensing station, facility, or
device to perform a test on or measurement of a shipment of motor fuel received to
determine the specific content of ethanol, methanol, or biodiesel.
