Educating about Ethanol's Use in Marine Engines

RFA has partnered with the Crappie Masters Tournament Trail as a co-title sponsor for the second consecutive year.  RFA’s participation helps to educate boaters, conservation enthusiasts and the public about the successful use of ethanol in marine engines.  For nearly 30 years, 10 percent ethanol has been used in all types of marine engines and the fuel blend is approved for use by all major marine engine manufacturers.  E10 is safe to use in marine engines, provides an octane boost, and dilutes the harmful ingredients in gasoline to help conserve fishing habitats.

“Crappie Masters is again proud and honored to team with the Renewable Fuels Association in 2018 as a title sponsor of the Crappie Masters All American Tournament Trail,” said Crappie Masters President Mike Vallentine. “We look forward to the continued education of the tournament Anglers, along with the general public, with an aggressive approach utilizing national television, social media, print, and grassroots face-to-face conversations. E10 is safe to use in outboards, as highlighted that in the past three years, every Crappie Masters tournament winning team has safely used E10 fuel with no reported engine issues. We plan to dispel the mistruths, rhetoric, and scare tactics from some organizations that continue to plague this safe, environmentally friendly, renewable, and homegrown fuel that is preferred by many tournament participants. Crappie Masters will continue to support America’s farmers and help make ethanol and renewable fuels the top choice of boaters and the public nationwide.” Click here to view RFA’s Crappie Masters TV commercial.
