    Just found a place that sells 100% gasoline. Has anyone else used it lately?-Bet my MPG increases 10%.
    Keep everyone posted. Local Co-OP(farm supplier) sells it.
    Already getting 20 mpg--(I think is good for a 6cyl).
    NOTE--There was a sticker that said 100% Gasoline--no ethanol

    I'd use that for small engines for sure! The ethanol causes problems for small displacement engines like lawnmowers, weed eaters, ATVs, motorcycles, etc. Not sure what it would do for the truck engine but keep us posted!

    Also filled up some cans for yard and garden engines.
    Had to REBUILD both of my chainsaw carbs because of the ethanol.
    We need to stop putting FOOD in our gas tank-Plenty of oil in the USA--Just need to get rid of some PEEPS in the GOVERNMENT. DRILL you dumbasses.

    If there is NO sticker indicating 10 or ? % Ethynol on the pump (like at Costco/ ARCO), is that good indicator (ie. does a pump have to post if it contains ethynol)?

    Not many places have it now. Usually a marina will have it but it costs hella too much there. I heard they had a lot of problems with snowmobiles in Maine when Ethanol was added everywhere

    I run non ethanol in the outboard motors on the boat. The stations that carry it around here advise not to put it in newer cars and won't when asked. Anyone know why?

    I'm gonna guess that if its at a marina that they didnt pay the road tax crap on it and arnt supposed to sell it for automobiles. Like selling agi diesel to long haul truckers. Only a guess though

    Sevierville--just checked the site posted below.(couple Posts down)
    Has a list of every state.
    Looks as if many Co-Op's have ALL gasoline fuel.

    Anyone in the gas business... if there isn't a sticker on the pump indicating there is ethynol in the tank, then is it ethynol-free?

    Here in SoCal, Costco and ARCO have stickers on the pumps indication the gas contains ethynol... but at the Mobile station, no sticker.

    Everywhere has 10% here... down at the lake (SW missouri) most places have ethanol free premium. I had to laugh I was at a station down there the other day and at one pump there was 85,86,87,88,89,90,91,92,93 octane. I about had a nervous breakdown trying to decide what flavor to get.

    Here in Nebr the pump must be marked if the gasoline contains ethonal, there was a debate as to weather the marking will remain once they introduce 15% ethanol, everyone started to bitch about that so now its up in the air.

    I hope they don't go to 15% ethanol... my motorcycle already runs like crap and it's starting to cost a lot of money in fuel additives to make it run right. If I have to use more it won't even be cost effective to drive my motorcycle! :eek:

    Soooo many ppl will be mad if we go 15%. Cuz most ppl can't afford a newer car to run on that crap. Hell i bet our trucks wont like running on that stuff.
