Melbourne, Fla. (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
Many people may be unaware that E15, a gasoline formulation that contains up to 15 percent ethanol by volume, can harm vehicles not made to burn it. In fact, E15 has a particularly devastating effect on motorcycle engines, and can include voiding a vehicle manufacturer’s warranty, which leaves motorcyclists with thousands of dollars of repair costs. However, Sinclair Law is pleased to announce that the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is supporting H.R. 142, the RFS Reform Act of 2013, presented by U.S. Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.).
This bipartisan bill would amend the Renewable Fuel Standard and, among other things, prohibit the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency from allowing the introduction of gasoline containing greater than 10 percent of ethanol by volume into the marketplace. In other words, E15 would no longer be permitted if this legislation becomes law.
“E15 is really bad for motorcycles and ATVs,” says Brad Sinclair of Sinclair Law. “We don’t want to even see it in the commerce market for vehicles. The possibility of misfueling is too high and too expensive to risk it.”
The new legislation would help protect the over-20 million motorcycles and ATVs in the country, and their riders. Sinclair is pleased by the legislation, and encourages people that are interested in supporting H.R. 1462 to visit http://capwiz.com/amacycle/issues/bills/?bill=62972151
