As part of a wider effort to reform the Renewable Fuel Standard, a bill has been introduced to study the effects of E15 fuels, which the American Motorcyclist Association supports. As it stands, no motorcycles or ATVs are approved by the EPA to run on fuels containing more than 10% ethanol.
Begin Press Release:
U.S. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) introduced H.R. 777 on Jan. 31. This bill would require the National Academy of Sciences to provide a comprehensive assessment of research on the implications of the use of mid-level ethanol blends – fuel containing more than 10 percent ethanol by volume – compared to gasoline blends containing 10 percent or zero percent ethanol. The study will evaluate the performance, safety, and environmental impact of mid-level ethanol blended fuels.

“As a former member of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee, I have always believed science-based decision making must guide our assessment of the RFS and the effects this policy has had on consumers, our economy, and our environment,” Sensenbrenner said. “This is especially true in a state like Wisconsin, where the use of recreational vehicles and marine engines is a way of life for many of its residents.”
