With increased global concern and new regulations and standards over carbon dioxide emission and evaporation into the atmosphere, sustainability has become a key objective for companies. Today products need to provide excellent performance and help prevent air pollution. Global initiatives for alternative energy have also driven the recreational marine industry to adapt to greener fuel such as ethanol or ethanol blend gasoline. As a result, OEMs of outboard boats and water ski jets are challenged to create new designs and technologies to overcome the impact these new fuels and additives have on their equipment.
