I added a little verbiage to my letter. Here is the text
As a recreational boat owner I am deeply concerned with the proposal (EPA-HQ-OAR-2015-0111), which will increase the mandated ethanol volumes in the nation's fuel supply to record levels. If adopted, these obligations will make it more difficult for me to find fuel that is safe to use in my boat's engine.
The proposed Renewable Volume Obligations (RVO) for 2015 and 2016 will force a greater amount of E15 and higher ethanol blends to be pushed on to the American public. It is prohibited to use E15 in my marine engine and it has been shown to cause damage. EPA should set the RVO levels so that I can be assured an adequate supply of fuel that is safe for my family's boating.
I am also very concerned that not enough has been done to prevent the mis-fueling of my boat with the higher ethanol blends. The mis-fueling mitigation plans currently available, little more than one sticker on fuel pumps, do not provide sufficient protection against my inadvertently using the wrong gasoline in my boat.
Harley Davidson owners manual states that I will void the warranty if I use E15 corn gas in my motorcycle.
How can this big subsidized Ponzi scheme help anyone.
It is killing the tax payers.
EPA must act to assure there is fuel available that will not put my engine at risk of being damaged and that I will not unintentionally put the wrong fuel in my boat or motorcycle, my lawnmower, weed eater, leaf blower, and chain saw . Thank you for your consideration of my views.
