The government should allow the manufacture of 100% ethanol-compliant vehicles instead of moving in a phased manner so that we would reduce the dependence on crude oil as well as lower pollution, demands Indian Sugar Mills Association (ISMA), reports The Hindu BusinessLine.

ISMA President Aditya Jhunjhunwala said, “India should launch the flex-fuels vehicles (FFVs) instead of launching E20 vehicles as the FFVs are 100 per cent ethanol-compliant vehicles and can be tuned to run with fuel blended with 20% ethanol and above.”

In a letter sent to the government he said that building E20-compliant vehicles will take 8-10 years from the launch date to cover the entire country.
