New legislation calls for fuel compatibility

January 1st, 2010 / By: / Industry News

A new legislation called the “Mid-Level Ethanol Blends Act of 2009” makes sure that new fuels introduced into the marketplace are compatible with boat engines. Because the Clean Air Act prohibits mid-level ethanol blends, the ethanol industry is seeking a waiver to sell E15 as a general purpose fuel. The bill requires an advisory board to study the compatibility of fuels with certain engines before a waiver can be granted.
