    I read on the Mercury Marine site that they approve of usage of up to E10 in all of their marine power packages, although they do warn of problems with older boats having FRP construction tanks.

    Re: Will you put "BIO FUEL" in your boat

    From what I have heard you do "NOT" ever want to run it if you have a fiberglass tank. Steel or aluminum is okay, but it will eat away a fiberglass tank.

    Then I understand that is attracts a LOT of moisture, and also burns hotter.

    I do not see anything good with this fuel in a marine environment.

    Personally I'm going to stay as far away from it as possible.

    I am going to run regular gas for now until more info is available. With that being said, I would rather spend my $$$$ with the farmers than the arabs!
