Polaris Announces Donation to Support Arizona Trail Work
Donation is the latest in Polaris’ ongoing support of the trails system
MINNEAPOLIS – (November 28, 2012) — Polaris Industries Inc. (NYSE: PII) today announced it has donated a Polaris RANGER 800 EFI Mid-Size and $24,000 to the National Forest Foundation (NFF), a non-profit partner of the U.S. Forest Service. This contribution benefits the Kelly Motorized Trail Implementation initiative and will revitalize and maintain 13 miles of trails in the Coconino National Forest, just outside Flagstaff, Ariz. The donation will support trail construction, improvements and maintenance.
Ethanol-Blend Purchase Mandate
The EPA revealed the requirement to the AMA in a letter dated Aug. 1, responding to AMA concerns that E15 -- a gasoline formulation that contains up to 15 percent ethanol by volume -- could be put in motorcycle and ATV gas tanks inadvertently when consumers use blender pumps. A blender pump dispenses different fuel blends through the same hose, and the vast majority of motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles in use today aren't designed to operate on E15 fuel.
"With E15 gasoline, our members who make a concerted effort to fuel their motorcycles or ATVs with E10-or-less gasoline may be unknowingly refueling with residual fuel left in the hose," Wayne Allard, AMA vice president for government relations, wrote in a June 20 letter to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson.
