Gadkari claims that in six months, flex fuel engines will be required
Flexible-fuel vehicles, often known as flex-fuel vehicles, are powered by flex engines (FFVs). These are vehicles that run on alternative fuels and have an internal combustion engine that can run on many fuels.
Nitin Gadkari, the Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways, announced on Friday that he will issue an order in the next three to four months requiring all automakers to use flex engines, which can run on many fuels. The announcement comes less than a month after Gadkari said that the central government will soon make it necessary for automakers to provide automobiles that operate entirely on biofuels.
Nitin Gadkari has pushed for the use of alternative energy sources and biofuels to reduce the environmental impact of the Indian automobile sector. Alternative fuel is not only less polluting and saves money, but it is also more cost-effective for customers, according to the minister. “We are dedicated to supplying vehicles with flex engine regulations,” Gadkari said last month, pointing out that a liter of bioethanol costs 65 cents compared to 110 cents for gasoline. We’ve made a decision, and we’re going to make it essential to have a flex-engine.” He went on to say that state-owned oil marketing organizations have already been forced to sell biofuels in the same locations as they sell gasoline and diesel.
