Haslett, MI, October 9, 2014: The International Snowmobile Manufacturers Association (ISMA) has partnered with the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI) and the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) in the ‘Look Before You Pump’ campaign, an ethanol education and consumer protection program. The campaign reminds consumers to always use fuels containing no greater than ten percent ethanol when powering their outdoor power equipment or other non-road product, such as boats, snowmobiles, motorcycles, ATVs not designed for higher ethanol fuel blends.

As a direct result of an early awareness by Montana OHV interests and the Montana Trail Vehicle Riders Association (MTVRA), Montana’s legislature initiated a new program for OHV recreation in 1987 by passing Montana’s first OHV registration law. The 1991 Legislative Session followed-up with support of OHV recreation by passing a law that returns a portion of the state gas tax paid by OHV owners for the benefit of off-road recreation statewide. Since those early years, subsequent
Legislative Session’s have approved the continuation of the Program and the expenditure of these funds for the benefit of OHV recreation statewide.

One of Central Montana’s most incredible assets is the recreational trail system available on our public lands, particularly in the Lewis and Clark National Forest. The Lewis and Clark has an incredible variety of trails including the Little Belt Mountains system, which offers arguably the best off-highway vehicle trail system in Montana.

Montana Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) owners pay the majority of costs for maintaining and enhancing Tails open to OHV recreation in Montana. Thanks to requests by OHV owners, the 1987 session of the Montana legislature passed Montana’s first OHV registration law that requires all OHVs used on public lands to display a registration decal. County treasurers deposit moneys collected in a dedicated fund to be used solely for Montana’s OHV program! Funds transferred to this fund in FY 2013 totaled $82,221.
