What’s worse than getting coal in your stocking? Having trouble with your engine-powered winter equipment, thanks to the ethanol mandates.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is standing behind a policy that would require a four-gallon minimum fuel purchase from pumps that dispense gasoline with 10 percent ethanol (E10) and 15 percent ethanol (E15) fuel from the same hose.
Is summer fun being put on notice? The Renewable Fuel Standard is siphoning the fun out of many outdoor activities you know and love. If it’s not reformed, it could wreak havoc on a season meant to be spent outside, enjoying nature and relaxing with friends and family.
For the next two weeks, historic vehicles are taking over our nation’s capital, and we want you to be a part of the festivities! We would be honored if you would join us for the second annual Cars at the Capital event in Washington, DC.
Imagine a world where government ethanol mandates work as they are intended to—with beautiful forests spanning from coast to coast, butterflies floating gently through crisp, clean air and high ethanol-blend fuels efficiently powering all cars, boats, motorcycles and every small engine imaginable.
“The ethanol mandate just hits too close to home for me to sit and talk about it. It’s something that demands my action.”
Swelling gas tanks, fewer miles to the gallon and “green sticky crap” in the carburetor… ethanol in our gasoline is causing all kinds of problems for motorcyclists, boaters and owners of other types of small engines like snow blowers and lawn mowers.
Advocates for Smarter Fuel Future design warning label that show the horrors of ethanol.
Last year, the EPA proposed a reduction to the 2014 RFS. In order to make it official, the EPA solicited comments from citizens and groups both in favor and opposed to this reduction. Featured are some of the disparate voices that spoke in favor of the reduction.
Classic American cars. Ski boats and pontoons. Harleys. Snowmobiles. They’re all a part of what makes our Pure Michigan life so special. But they’re all also threatened by a broken federal policy known as the Renewable Fuel Standard.
Colin Carter, professor of agriculture at UC Davis, and Michael Marsh, CEO of Western United Dairymen’s Association, debated the merits of this broken policy with Neil Koehler, CEO of Pacific Ethanol.
For most folks, it’s the price of gasoline that matters. But for a vocal minority, it’s what’s in the gasoline that really matters. Or, to be more precise, what isn’t – specifically ethanol.
As the amount of biofuel blended with U.S gasoline supplies increases, many vintage vehicles could be feeling the long-term effects. Modern gasoline blends are far different than those used in the era of classic cars and motorcycles.
There’s enough food to feed everyone in the world, but it’s just not evenly distributed. That may be true. For now. But according to a study in the journal PLOS ONE, there won’t be enough food for everyone by 2050, no matter how we divvy it up.
Will drivers nationwide be pulling up to gas station pumps that sell E15 now that the Supreme Court has declined to block sales of the fuel that is a gas blend containing 15 percent ethanol?
3 ways the Renewable Fuel Standard is affecting the Fourth of July holiday.
On June 19th, bikers, classic car owners and other citizens from across the country gathered at the U.S. Capitol to raise awareness of the risks of E15 — a fuel blend containing 15 percent ethanol, and 85 percent regular gasoline — and call for independent testing of the fuel.
There’s a new threat facing motorcyclists nationwide, and possibly all Americans. The danger is posed by a certain blend of motor vehicle fuel called E15, which may damage the engines of motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles, boats and powered equipment.
With gas prices continuing to rise and consumers keeping their cars, boats and equipment longer, many are starting to take greater interest in the debate over ethanol-blended fuel and how it’s affecting their engines and wallets.
Who’s paying the costs of the federal ethanol mandate? Every family who shops in a grocery store or dines at a restaurant, every livestock producer who faces higher feed costs, and every motorist who fills up their tank at the gas station pays the price of this unworkable policy.
