Ethanol (E15)

OPEI Launches Fuel Education Program


Look Before You Pump for Outdoor Power Equipment


Ethanol Education for Equipment Users


Before you purchase a new lawn mower, chain saw, snow thrower, UTV, generator or other small engine product, the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI) has an important message for you. It is harmful and illegal to use higher than 10 percent ethanol gas in any outdoor power equipment. You may see higher ethanol fuel blends, such as 15, 20, 30, 50 and 85 percent ethanol fuel, sold at gas stations or at gasoline blender pumps. Read your owner’s manual before fueling to understand the right fuel for your product … and look before you pump!
