E15 warning stickers available
The National Marine Manufacturers Association is distributing 100,000 E15 warning labels to NMMA member boat manufacturers across the country to place on their boats in hopes of alerting boaters to the potential dangers of fuel with a high volume of ethanol.
The labels will help educate boaters that E15 should not be used in their boat.
In Lake Wylie, Kangaroo Express at 4044 Charlotte Hwy. and BP at 5075 Charlotte Hwy. sell ethanol-free fuel.
