An Ethanol Increase??
I read a very unsettling article recently published by Boating World Magazine. According to the article, a coalition of 54 ethanol manufacturers have formed a group called Growth Energy and are petitioning the EPA to increase the maximum ethanol level to 15%. I described in detail during a previous posting the damage that 10% ethanol has on fuel systems. A 5% increase not only will have a severe impact on marine engines and other non-road vehicles, but raises safety concerns for motor vehicles as well. The article points out that no testing has been done to determine whether it will impact air quality and whether it is even safe for consumers to use.
Please support the NMMA in their effort to make boaters’ concerns heard by clicking here to email the EPA directly.
