Albany -- The state wants more gas stations to sell ethanol. But it may be a while before you start to see the bio-fuel at South Georgia pumps.

The Georgia Environmental Facilities Authority is offering gas stations grants up to $20,000 to help install or convert fuel equipment to supply Ethanol.

But fuel retailers in Albany tell us the demand for Ethanol just isn't there yet.

"There is from what I understand a fairly large expense in retrofits and changing equipment. And although if your demand is not there, although the state may help you make those changes, you may not even justify even that expense," said Woodall's Gasoline owner, Wright Woodall.

E-85 Ethanol can be used in flex-fuel vehicles which can operate on either E-85, gasoline or a combination of both.
