A lot of sportsmen, including
those who own outboard motors, will be glad to know the Environmental
Protection Agency announced this week it will delay a final decision to
allow ethanol blends up to E15 until more testing data is available.
The National Marine Manufacturers Association has long call for more
testing given the serious concerns about the potential impacts of
mid-level ethanol blends on recreational marine engines and boats,
including increased air emissions, performance and durability issues, as
well as warranty concerns.
No recreational marine engines, fuel systems or boats are currently
designed, calibrated, certified or warranted to run on any fuel with
more than 10 percent ethanol.
