The Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) is a broken policy that is forcing more ethanol into the nation’s gasoline supply. The only way to meet this federal government mandate is to increase the amount of gasoline that must be blended with greater than 10% ethanol. These higher blends, 15%, 20% and even up to 85% ethanol, have been proven to damage boat engines. The RFS is also limiting the supply of ethanol-free gasoline, a fuel that many boat owners prefer to protect their engine.
We call on Congress and the new Administration to fix this broken policy and reform the RFS mandate. Please act to protect boat engines and keep families safe on the water.
