Stop E15 Fuel

This is especially important for Euro bikes:

House and Senate legislation would restrict availability of unsafe fuel for motorcycles

Urge your representative and senators to cosponsor these bills




U.S. Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.) and Sen. Tom Udall (D-N.M.) introduced the "Growing Renewable Energy through Existing and New Environmentally Responsible Fuels Act" (the GREENER Act) in the U.S. House (H.R. 5212) and Senate (S. 2519). The American Motorcyclist Association supports these bills.

The legislation would cap mandated ethanol content in the nation's fuel supply at 9.7 percent and require the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to prioritize the use of cellulosic biofuel ahead of other biofuels when determining volumes below blend wall levels.

In other words, the bill would stop the federal government from forcing E15 fuel (15 percent ethanol by volume) into the market. Capping the ethanol mandate helps ensure the availability of safe fuels, such as E10, and a continuing place in the market for ethanol-free gasoline (E0) for older motorcycles.

None of the estimated 22 million motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles in use in the United States is certified by the EPA to operate on fuel containing more than 10 percent ethanol. Inadvertent use of E15 in vehicles not designed for its use can damage fuel system and engine components and void manufacturer's warranties.

Tell your representative to support H.R. 5212 and your senators to support S. 2519. Send a prewritten message by clicking the "Take Action" link.

I'm a long time member of the AMA and this is an example of what the AMA does for us on a National level...   I believe that the money spent on an AMA membership does more to protect our right to enjoy our sport than money spent on marque oriented groups.
Their are many misconceptions about the AMA, Unlike ABATE that seems to encourage no helmets and loud exhaust (IMHO) the AMA supports quiet and efficient exhaust (Loud Pipes Lose Rights) and your right to wear a helmet or not (they strongly encourage wearing one).  They also organize, sanction and insure off road events and racing.   Most importantly, again IMHO, they give US a voice in Washington, where if you don't have a lobby working on your behalf someone will take your rights away.
I invite anyone that doesn't belong to join.
