Last week, the Environmental Protection Agency approved a rule allowing the year-round sale of fuel with 15-percent ethanol. Through its voice at the American Boating Congress and through numerous other avenues, the MRAA along with its coalition partners voiced opposition to this effort. The MRAA believes that poor execution of ethanol-related warning labels at gas pumps, coupled with the harmful effects that ethanol has on small gas-powered engines, puts a greater number of boaters in jeopardy on the water this summer. We continue to encourage Congress to pass the Consumer Protection and Fuel Transparency Act, a bi-partisan legislative effort that aims to revise labeling and education requirements for fuel pumps that offer E15.
