This excise tax exemption allows a refund to those who blend conventional motor fuel with alcohol to produce ethanol. The refund is equal to the "difference between taxes paid on the motor fuel purchased to produce ethanol blended gasoline and the tax due on the ethanol blended gasoline." In effect, ethanol-blended gasoline is taxed at $0.19 per gallon, while non-ethanol blended gasoline is taxed at $0.20 per gallon.
