Crappie Masters Pleased with Final RVO

The Crappie Masters tournament, which promotes the use of E10 fuel in boating, is pleased with the final volume obligations for biofuels under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).

“The decision to increase the total biofuels number to 19.29 billion gallons shows support and belief in agriculture, the American farmer, conservation, and the environment,” tournament officials said in a statement.

Crappie Masters support for ethanol has been on full display the last three years on the Tournament Trail, as every winning team has collected a cash bonus for using E10 fuel in their outboard with no negative issues or misfueling. The Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) was a title sponsor of the event this year, along with Bass Pro.

“Crappie Masters surveys have shown E10 fuel is the preferred choice by nearly all the participants across the country who have chosen to become educated on the benefits while enjoying increased performance, lower fuel costs, cleaner emissions, and cleaner and healthier waterways thanks to the RFS requirements, and belief by the EPA.”
