Pilot program for sustainable marine fuels in recreational boating begins in Florida Panhandle

| Staff Reporters

The pilot program, taking place at St. Andrews Marina in Panama City, makes new high-performance, 93-octane, ethanol-free premium gasoline available to boaters for the first time at a local marina.
