45 House members sign ethanol letter to EPA

In an effort spearheaded by the National Marine Manufacturers Association, 45 members of the U.S. House of Representatives have signed a letter to EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy asking what the agency is doing to protect consumers from misfueling with E15 and higher blends of ethanol.

The bipartisan letter requests information on the agency’s consumer outreach efforts to date, and on what plans the agency has to better educate consumers in the future. The letter came in response to the increasing ethanol mandates set forth by the EPA—with more E15 expected on the market, more needs to be done to ensure marine engines aren’t damaged due to misfueling, NMMA said.
