Kris Kiser, executive vice president of OPEI, testified at the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee hearing on domestic renewable fuels and voiced concerns about the Environmental Protection Agency's partial approval of E15. He noted that use of E15 in some small engines led to "increased heat, performance irregularities and unintentional clutch engagement" and said some were concerned that E10 could no longer be available. "We are not anti-ethanol," Kiser said. "Our members can design a product for E10, E20, E30, whatever. It doesn't matter. None of our products -- no marine product, no ATV, no snowmobile -- has been designed, built or warranted to run on any gasoline fuel containing more than 10% ethanol."
