Automakers ask Supreme Court to decide fuel issue


NEW YORK (WKZO) -- Detroit's Big Three automakers along with foreign manufacturers want the U.S. Supreme Court to decide the issue of using E15 Ethanol fuel in vehicles from 2001 and newer.

A group representing the auto companies filed the petition to overturn an Appeals Court ruling stating the car companies and trade associations opposed to the fuel had no legal standing to challenge the law.  Automakers say the vehicles are not designed to use the higher content Ethanol and its use may void warranties.

Proponents of the fuel say the automakers have failed to identify any problems.
