Help convince the EPA to eliminate the problems of E-10 ethanol-laced fuels

 

 

 The EPA is now ready to approve its use for on-highway, but we need many positive comments from boaters.  As members of the marine community, anything we can do to create a positive experience for boaters will only help the recreational boating industry.  
 
 
Please kindly share this link with your friends and on other websites and ask them take 10 seconds to click and say yes to EPA! Your voice will help us move beyond ethanol and give consumers a better choice at the pump.  
 
The marine industry, especially engine manufacturers, have been testing butanol for several years and approve of adopting it over the expensive and damaging problems encountered with ethanol laced E-10 gasolines in a marine environment. Isobutanol is inexpensive and does not cause corrosion of boat fuel systems like ethanol does.

Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.
