More Testing Needed on Mid-Level Ethanol Gasoline

Strother Scott on Friday January 8, 2010 03:26PM

The National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) in partnership with the Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatU.S.) and twelve other trade groups representing 90% of retail gasoline providers, almost all automobile manufacturers and a large majority of motorcycle and non-road equipment manufacturers sent a letter Wednesday to the EPA, Department of Energy (DOE) and The White House concerning the EPA's pending decision on the use of E15 and DOE's Ethanol Research Program.

This issue is important to anyone who owns gasoline-powered tools, equipment, autos, boats, and off-road vehicles or who may have safety or environmental concerns with the current proposals for increasing the amount of ethanol in the nation's gasoline supply.
