"[The National Marine Manufacturers Association] has long contended no amount of labeling will adequately prevent consumer confusion and misfueling of boats while at the pump, nor has EPA provided any data to prove that a label is a sufficient consumer safeguard," the association said. "NMMA is encouraging all marine industry employees and boaters to provide feedback to EPA on the label and encourage additional misfueling controls before the comment deadline of Jan. 3, 2011."

The EPA is hosting a public hearing on its proposed gasoline pump label rulemaking at 10 a.m. Nov. 16 at the Knickerbocker Hotel in Chicago

The NMMA said it plans to testify and it encourages other members of the boating industry to express their concerns.
