NMMA plans conference call on fuel standards

On Monday, the National Marine Manufacturers Association will join a diverse group of stakeholders in holding a conference call to discuss the negative impacts of the Renewable Fuel Standard.

 

The NMMA will address the concerns of the recreational boating industry as it relates to the dangers to consumers of using fuel with a percentage of ethanol above 10 percent in boat engines and the detriment it causes to the $72 billion-a-year U.S. recreational boating industry.

The NMMA said tests on off-the-production-line outboard engines have demonstrated that an E15 ethanol blend will destroy the marine engines, and the NMMA said it has the photos to prove it.

In addition to boating, the group is composed of food and fuel manufacturers, livestock and dairy producers, small engine groups, environmental and anti-hunger organizations and budget watchdogs.

The call will take place at 1:30 EST.
