414.412. Alternative use of fuel, waived or percentage reduced by director, certified evidence required — other vehicles, ethanol use required, exceptions. — 1. The director may reduce any percentage specified or waive the requirement of subsection 3 of section 414.410 for any state agency upon receipt of certification supported by evidence acceptable to the director that:
(1) The agency's vehicles will be operating primarily in an area in which neither the agency nor a supplier has or can reasonably be expected to have a central refueling station for alternative fuels; or
(2) The agency is unable to acquire or operate vehicles within the cost limitations of section 414.400 or section 414.415; or
(3) The use of alternative fuels would not meet the energy conservation and exhaust emissions reduction criteria of subsection 2 of section 414.410.
2. State agencies shall submit information describing the acquisition and use of vehicles capable of using alternative fuels to the department in a format prescribed by the department. The report shall include for each vehicle model capable of using alternative fuel:
(1) The types of alternative fuels used;
(2) The number of miles traveled using alternative fuels and the ratios to the total numbers of miles traveled;
(3) The number of vehicles owned which are capable of using alternative fuels;
(4) Maintenance costs.
3. Each state-owned vehicle equipped to operate on gasoline, other than vehicles using alternative fuel, shall use a fuel ethanol blend as defined in section 142.028, when available at a competitive price, as its motor fuel, unless the United States Environmental Protection Agency, or the governor by executive order, promulgates rules which prohibit, limit or otherwise regulate the use of ethanol-blended fuels in ozone nonattainment areas, as defined by Section 107 of the federal Clean Air Act, as amended, or in an area designated as a maintenance area for ozone under Section 175A of the federal Clean Air Act, as amended, state-owned vehicles shall not be required to use a fuel ethanol blend.
