AMA Action Alert: EPA Needs To Hear From You On E15 Gasoline

The EPA needs to hear from you on E15

Submit comments before the deadline, Jan. 28!

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued a rule proposal to reduce the total amount of ethanol required in transportation fuel nationwide in 2014. The AMA supports this proposal because it could slow the introduction of E15, a gasoline formulation that contains up to 15 percent ethanol by volume, into the marketplace. The AMA opposes E15 because it can cause engine and fuel system damage to your motorcycle or ATV.

However, the EPA needs to hear from you to make changes to the ethanol mandate, known as the Renewable Fuel Standard, a reality.

The EPA is seeking public comments now on the rule proposal. You can tell them how this proposal will help protect 22 million motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles in America -- and the riders who depend on their safe operation -- from inadvertent misfueling.

The deadline for comments is Jan. 28! Act today to ensure your voice is heard.

The EPA's policy is that all comments received will be included in the public docket without change and may be made available online at www.regulations.gov, including any personal information provided.

Now more than ever, it is crucial that you and your riding friends become members of the AMA or ATVA to help protect our riding freedoms. More members mean more clout against the opponents of motorcycling and ATV riding. That support will help fight for your rights – on the road, trail, racetrack, and in the halls of government.
