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

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. If
