It’s definitely a fuel source that requires more research and facts before entering the market. As a motorcycle owner, I’m concerned about what E15 might do to my engine, the potential of misfueling, and the safety concerns that will follow.
MELBOURNE, Fla. (PRWEB) December 11, 2013
E15, a gasoline formulation that contains up to 15% Ethanol, is stirring up concern among drivers, vehicle manufacturers, and the general public. After being approved by the Environmental Protection Agency in 2012, the use of E15 remains unpopular, particularly with motorcyclists.
Although E15 is reported to be cleaner and more cost-effective than E10, the most widely available gasoline in the United States, opponents of E15 warn that the formulation may cause irreparable damage to engines and may produce less energy. Brad Sinclair of Sinclair Law, a respected Florida motorcycle injury lawyer, is against the use of E15, especially in motorcycles or ATVs. “The use of E15 has not been sufficiently studied and should not enter the fuel market,” says Sinclair.
In addition to concerns about E15’s damage to engines and its components, opponents of E15 use believe that the fuel is not as powerful as E10 and may even invalidate warranties. When asked about the dangers of using E15, Sinclair reiterated that E15 needs further investigation. “It’s definitely a fuel source that requires more research and facts before entering the market. As a motorcycle owner, I’m concerned about what E15 might do to my engine, the potential of misfueling, and the safety concerns that will follow.”
Sinclair is a trusted Florida motorcycle injury lawyer who supports H.R. 1462, a bill that rescinds the requirements of blending up to 15% ethanol into fuel. “Motorcycle and ATV drivers should be protected from the use of E15,” says Sinclair.
