The EPA is planning to make E15 even more widespread at local gas stations across the country – despite the risks fueling with high levels of ethanol, like E15, pose.
These fuels corrode small engines, like those in boats, lawn mowers, and motorcycles, voiding their warranty and putting people at risk. And even fewer people know it’s against federal laws to use E15 in these engines.
The recreational boating industry continues to fight against this dangerous policy, and we need to make sure people are educated and safe. Fortunately, the bipartisan “Consumer Protection and Fuel Transparency Act” would require clear labeling on gas pumps that contain E15 and better educate consumers about higher ethanol blend fuels.
Tell your members of Congress to support the Consumer Protection and Fuel Transparency Act!
