Boaters urged to contact EPA about ethanol

Ethanol, News you can use

Here is extremely important news for boat owners. The Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatU.S.) and the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) are strongly encouraging every boater in America to send comments to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) about a plan to increase the amount of ethanol in gasoline. Such an increase could wreak havoc on boat engines.

The deadline to send comments is fast approaching, July 20, 2009.

Read more details here, here, and here.  These links will have links to other news articles and a form to send comments to the EPA.

This 2006 Boston Globe article demonstrates that gasoline with just 10 percent ethanol was causing problems for boaters.
