Fox's Bill Oreilly Calls For Flex Fuel Mandate

Bill Oreilly has come out in favor of the Flex Fuel Mandate calling for congress to pass a law requiring all new cars sold in the US to be capable of running on flex fuel.

This idea is nothing new, but having an advocate with the visibility and reach of Fox's Bill Oreilly is without a doubt a major shot in the arm for the idea. I've also been hearing paid news consultants beginning to profer the idea as well.

The original and most comprehensive blueprint for the mandate, also called the "Open Fuel Standard" has been put forth by the Set America Free Coalition, the bi-partisan group composed of hawks, doves, evangelicals and environmentalists promoting energy security through flex fuel and plug-in hybrids.
