AMA-logo-230PICKERINGTON, Ohio — More than 25,000 people have joined the American Motorcyclist Association to oppose federal mandates that would result in the spread of higher-ethanol blended fuels and increase the risk of inadvertent misfueling for motorcyclists and others.

To date, the AMA has collected 25,151 signatures on its online petition urging the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency not to increase the proposed renewable fuel volumes this year and, instead, to adopt lower mandates.
