Letter writing campaign against E15 ethanol gasoline

Post by WingAdmin » Wed Oct 24, 2018 8:34 am



The AMA (American Motorcyclist Association) is an association that I generally ignore because of their boneheaded opinion (and continual lobbying for) on helmet use.

However, they are joining the effort in lobbying against the introduction of E15 15% ethanol-laced gasoline. Most motorcycles are not designed for (and will be damaged by) E15, and many new bikes will have their warranties voided by its use. Yet the corn growing industry is still trying to ram it through.

They've got a very simple page set up where you can fill out one form and send letters to a multitude of politicians all in one go, and I suggest everyone take the 30 seconds to do so:

Be that as it may,

President Trump has already signed a bill that "Allows the sale of E-15 all year long now".
( this does not require the removal of E-10 )

so, it will be on a lot of pumps everywhere now.... and that means there will be pressure to remove the E-0 that we enjoy at some fuel stops.....

and; I added 150 words to that letter stating that both of my bikes explicitly prohibit Ethanol fuels.... the Piaggio MP3 has a big Bold statement that it MUST USE 91 PURE GAS or the warranty is voided.
fortunately for me, 91 E-0 is available at two stations within 2 miles of my home.

Thank you!

Your message for "Oppose the proposed EPA action on E15" was sent on 10/24/2018 07:44 PM to the following recipients: President Donald Trump (R)

I went through the motions but the only way you are going to influence anything is if you send your congressman an envelope with a big fat check in it.

All the members of this forum don't have enough money combined to buy a Congressman. They are cheap, but not that cheap.
Now, if you have young, cute, blond, foreign niece for the President . . . .
Don't drive intoxicated.
Don't drive intexticated.
