Hi All!

We are in need of contacting each of our US Senators in regards to having them vote to approve  this new legislation introduced in the US Senate to Prevent The Sale E-15 Gasoline.   The E-10 Gasoline is already causing problems with our Collector Vehicles Fuel Systems and  from all Reports E-15 will further damage/corrode those same fuel systems even further.  Please join this effort by  contacting your US Senators in an effort to stop this from accelerating additional damage to our vehicles!

Thanks

Legislation Introduced in U.S. Senate to Prevent Sale of E15 Gasoline

Legislation (S. 344) has been introduced in the U.S. Senate to prohibit the introduction of gasoline containing over 10% ethanol into the marketplace. Over a year ago, the EPA raised the amount of ethanol permitted in gasoline from 10% (E10) to 15% (E15) and the fuel may soon appear at a gas station near you.

We Urge You to Contact Your U.S. Senators to Request Their Support for S. 344

  • Ethanol increases water formation that can then create formic acid and corrode metals, plastics and rubber.  Older cars and certain high performance specialty parts are not constructed with corrosion-resistant materials or able to tolerate the higher temperatures at which E15 may burn.
  • The EPA made it “illegal” to put E15 in pre-2001 vehicles.  However, the EPA is willing to risk destruction of the vehicle/parts by relying solely on a gas pump label cautioning motorists not to misfuel their older vehicles.  The EPA estimates that there are over 70 million such vehicles in harm’s way, along with millions more boats, lawnmowers and other gas-powered engine products.
  • Auto enthusiasts have complained for years about damage caused by E10, which is now in over 90% of gas sold in the U.S.  Ethanol has time to damage the engine, fuel line, fuel tank and exhaust systems when classic cars are infrequently driven and increases the risk of corrosion by 50 percent.
  • S. 344 would prevent the sale of E15 and therefore protect automotive enthusiasts from the negative effects of increased ethanol content in gasoline.

DON’T DELAY!  Contact your Senators immediately by phone or e-mail to request their support of S. 344.  To identify your U.S. Senators, click here:http://semasan.com/lookup.asp?g=semaga

Please e-mail a copy of your e-mail to Dan Sadowski at dans@sema.org.  Also, please forward this Alert to your fellow car enthusiasts.  Urge them to join the SAN and help defend the hobby! Thank you for your assistance.
