Using Fuels Containing Ethanol in Marine Motors

Ethanol is used as an “oxygenate” and is added to fuel to help reduce hydrocarbon emissions that cause air pollution. For boat owners, this results in occasionally pumping E10 (10% ethanol, 90% gasoline) fuel into their tanks. Harbortown Marina customers always get 10 cents off per gallon, and if you sign up for the customer rewards program, you’ll receive a coupon for 5 cents off. 1
