This is the info I'm basing my argument off of. Less engergy density in ethanol than gasoline. Either way, I think it will be helpful to gather up a list of stations we KNOW FOR A FACT sell E10.

agreed. i have been told that getty currently distributes e10 to its stations by a getty station owner. things may have changed, but i doubt it.

Doesn't Shell do it too?
Where you are at Shell, 76, Mobil and Chevron all have 5.7% Ethanol content. The differences are the additives.
You should try filling up with Spirit. I heard they were good.

Ethanol is a mandated

Ethanol is a mandated oxygenate in Connecticut. I don't think it can be avoided anywhere in this state.

I should have said, that E85 should be more cost effective, as 5-9% greater power can be had from E85, though it does require about 27-30% more fuel.

Rumor has it that the pricing of E85 will be less then 70% of that of gasoline. This is in part because a large amount of the price of gas is taxes, and a decent part of those taxes doesn't apply to ethanol. The savings in tax alone should be about 50 cents a gallon.
