Boating Matters
Stand Up and Take Action!
Save your boat & the industry from E15, contact Congress today!

Let your member of Congress know that adding more E15 in the marketplace is unacceptable and puts the safety of boaters and millions of other off-road engine equipment users at risk.

A bi-partisan group of Congressmen have introduced a bill, H.R. 1315, that would cap ethanol at E10. This would prevent the EPA from allowing higher blends of harmful ethanol like E15 to become a dominant source of fuel in our marketplace, and will help protect the more than 12 million recreational boats and 35,000 boating businesses across the country.

Proven through extensive testing by NMMA engine manufacturers, in coordination with the Department of Energy, we know that blends of fuel with greater than 10 percent ethanol are destructive to marine engines and the 97% of boaters who fill up at gas stations. With more E15 in the fuel supply, the risk of misfueling your marine equipment increases and the ability to find ethanol free fuel will diminish.

Boaters need and deserve access to safe and approved fuels in order to enjoy one of our nations' most treasured pastimes. It's time to tell Congress no more E15.

Let your Representative know that boaters and the boating industry won't stand for more E15 and want the RFS fixed now.
