BoatUS urges members to support Florida ethanol mandate repeal

The Boat Owners Association of the United States is reaching out to its half-a-million members to drum up support for a repeal of Florida’s ethanol mandate.

Passed in 2008, the Florida state law requires that all gasoline sold in the state contain 9 to 10 percent ethanol. The law includes an exception for marine fuel, but BoatUS and other opponents of the law say the rule makes it difficult to find ethanol-free fuel.

A bill to repeal the mandate passed earlier this month and is waiting for Gov. Rick Scott’s signature.

    Great idea, let’s get New York to follow suit. And then the whole country as the ethanol idea was stupid to begin with!

    we will have destroyed half of the the pre2007 engines by the time people figure this idiocy the government has rammed down our throats. why i still run into cranial/ rectal inversions that tell me ethanol absolutely has no effect on a combustion engine.
