Decree 4892 requires obligatory blends for ethanol between 8% and 10% (E8 and E10). It also gives the authority to the Ministry of Mines and Energy to establish blends of ethanol and biodiesel above 10% starting from 1 January 2013. The mandatory requirement of E85 on all automobiles (up to 2000 cubic centimetres) mandated by Decree 1135 of 2009 was removed.
