Coast Guard Warns Boaters Not To Use E15 In Their Boats

By Lauren Wethington

The U.S. Coast Guard in Detroit issued a warning to boaters not to fill their fuel tanks with gasoline containing 15 percent ethanol, commonly known as E15.

In a Facebook post the Coast Guard cautioned boaters new fuel standards established by the Biden administration allowing the sale of E15 gasoline during the summer could pose safety threats when used in watercrafts.

“The fuel, containing 15 percent ethanol, was authorized for the summer for use in cars. However, it’s federally prohibited for vessel use because of its potential to cause marine engine damage, thus voiding any engine warranties, the U.S. Coast Guard says.

Even more worrying, the Coast Guard says E15 fuel has been proven to make engines run hotter, which increases the likelihood of a boat fire.”
