New Delhi:

Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said on Monday that he would issue an ordinance within the next two or three days to force automakers to introduce flex-fuel engines in vehicles.

Addressing an event, Gadkari said, India imports petroleum products worth 8 lakh crore every year, and if the country continues to depend on fossil fuels, then its import bill will rise to Rs 25 lakh over the next five years.

“To reduce imports of fossil fuels, I will sign a dossier in the next 2-3 days, in which automakers will be asked to manufacture vehicles with flex-fuel engines (which can run on more than one fuel)”, the road said the Minister of Transport and Roads.

Flexible fuel, or flexible fuel, is an alternative fuel made from a combination of gasoline and methanol or ethanol.
