Boating United Alert: Oppose Year-Round Sale of E15

NMMA issued a Boating United alert last Friday, encouraging all industry stakeholders to take action and tell the administration and Congress to stop the expansion of E15 sales. The alert comes after President Trump’ recently announced that he is considering allowing year-round sales of E15.

According to the Boating United advocacy page, “The administration is ‘very close’ to expanding the sale of fuel with 15% ethanol – known as E15 – year-round, which will needlessly put 142 million American boaters in danger.

“Small engines – like those in your boats, lawn mowers, and motorcycles – can only use fuel with 10% ethanol (E10) or lower. Fuels with a higher ethanol content cause severe damage to smaller engines, putting you and your boat at risk.

“Expanding E15 sales before consumer protections are in place is reckless. Fortunately, there's a solution in Congress called The Consumer Protection and Fuel Transparency Act, which will protect consumers through education and better labeling.”
