Marine Industry Fights EPA’s Push to Authorize E15 Fuels

The EPA’s authorization of E15 fuels, which contain 15% ethanol, means a lot of potential engine problems for boaters. While the EPA has continued to back the use of E15 fuels, the marine industry is not backing down.
The reason for that fight is because ethanol fuel can do a great deal of damage to boat motors causing need for immediate boat repair. The approval of E15 is not only being opposed by boat owners, but by engine manufacturers as well. Boat owners are likely to experience issues with E15 fuels, which could mean costly repairs or even leave them stuck out at sea with no power.
