RFA is Encouraging Its Members to Take Action on E15!

RFA is asking all fishermen that fish on a boat with an outboard engine to participate in the Action Alert being circulated by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA).  Please read the alert from NMMA below and take action by clicking the link provided. 

We need your help TODAY!  Let your Senator know that adding more E15 in the marketplace is unacceptable for the 12 million boats and millions of other off-road engine equipment in the marketplace. 
A deal is being pushed in the Senate that would overturn a rule on methane emissions in exchange for the ability to push more E15 into your gas pumps nationwide. This backroom deal by pro-corn Senators, would put millions of boaters at risk. We know that E15 is destructive to marine engines and the 97% of boaters who fill up at gas stations. With more E15 in the fuel supply, the risk of misfueling your marine equipment increases and the ability to find ethanol free fuel will diminish. Politicians should not be gambling on recreational boating and putting more consumers at risk. 

It's time to tell Congress no more E15, and once and for all, fix the broken Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). Let your Senator and Representative know that boaters and the boating industry won't stand for more E15 and want the RFS fixed now. 

Click here to take action now, and urge your Senator to say NO more E15.
