2              Commencement

                This Determination commences on 1 March 2004.

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

         (1)   The fuel quality information standard for the supply of ethanol blend from a service station is that one of the following appears, clearly displayed, on any petrol pump at the station dispensing ethanol blend:

                (a)    the words ‘Contains up to x% ethanol’, where x is no less than the percentage of ethanol in the ethanol blend;

               (b)    the words ‘Contains y% ethanol’, where y is the percentage of ethanol in the ethanol blend.

         (2)   For paragraph (1) (b), if the percentage is not a whole number, it may be rounded to the nearest whole percentage, a multiple of 0.5 % being rounded up.

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 specified in paragraph 4 (a) or (b); or

               (b)    if the buyer is present when the ethanol blend is supplied, the words specified in paragraph 4 (a) or (b) appear on each container of ethanol blend so that the words can easily be read by the buyer.

6              Supply of ethanol blend to retailer

                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
