3              Definitions

                In this Determination:

ethanol blend means petrol that, as tested in accordance with the Fuel Standard (Petrol) Determination 2001, contains more than 1% ethanol.

service station means premises at which petrol is sold by retail from a petrol pump.

4              Service stations

                The fuel quality information standard for the supply of ethanol blend from a service station is that the notice set out in Schedule 1 (the Schedule 1 notice) is clearly displayed on any petrol pump at that station that dispenses ethanol blend, as close as practicable to each nozzle that dispenses the ethanol blend.

5              Other retail supply

                The fuel quality information standard for the supply, by retail sale, of ethanol blend other than from a service station is that:

                (a)    before the ethanol blend is supplied, the buyer is given a document that prominently includes the words in the Schedule 1 notice; or

               (b)    the buyer is present when the ethanol blend is supplied and the Schedule 1 notice is placed on each container of ethanol blend so the notice can easily be read by the buyer.

                The information standard for the supply of ethanol blend to a retailer is that, at the time of the supply, the retailer is given a document that prominently displays:

                (a)    a statement that the ethanol blend may contain up to and including 10% ethanol; and
