This proposal would cause even more confusion given the events surrounding the rollout of E15 into the marketplace. The AMA opposes E15 and any fuel containing more than 10 percent ethanol, because it can cause engine and fuel system failure on motorcycles or all-terrain vehicles, and can void manufacturers' warranties. The use of ethanol in motor vehicles has a greater impact on the environment than fossil fuel alone. It is a misguided program that should be abandoned! Regards, Fred Butler
