(815 ILCS 370/4.1)
(from Ch. 5, par. 1704.1)
(a) Upon any retail motor fuel dispensing device which is
used to dispense a motor fuel containing at least 1% by volume of ethanol,
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.
(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
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.
