The Legend is back...Gulf MARINE Fuel Blended with Isobutanol from Gevo Inc. is Suitable and Safe for Racing Boats and Recreational Marine Engines.
Gulf MARINE Biofuel with Isobutanol is one of the first fuels on the market to comply with biofuel recommendations issued by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) and the American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC).
The new recommendations come after five years of extensive marine industry testing of fuel containing isobutanol, a renewable biofuel alternative provided by Gevo Inc. for recreational boating. Those testing the fuel included the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Argonne National Laboratory, Volvo-Penta, Bombardier Recreational Products, Evinrude, Yahama, Mercury Marine, Honda, Tohatsu, Indmar and the U.S. Coast Guard.
The testing was undertaken to confirm that recreationals boaters could power their engines with gasoline blends that contain isobutanol as a replacement for ethanol, and experience fewer problems and better preformance while still meeting government mandated Renewable Fuel Standards.
Gulf MARINE delivers on the primary benefits of isobutanol-blended gasoline, which include improved moisture and water resistance, higher energy content and preventing phase seperation in the fuel system and reducing engine corrosion.
