Re: List of stations providing ethanol free fuel
 
The station I use for non-ethanol is on the list and a few I didn't know about in towns outside of where I live.:thumbup:

Nice find!!!

Yeah, someone brought it up on a motorcycle forum I'm on, someone was having problems with E10 in their bike and wanted to know where they could get the good stuff.

Nice info but unfortunately none near me. Maybe there is hope for me though, as I would rather have a choice. Thanks, I bookmarked it anyway.

Which motorcycle forum? Might be something to look into for me.

There's ONE ethanol-free station near me. It's 20 miles away, though, and not on my way to anywhere. lol I'd end up wasting more to go there than I'd save by having pure gas in my tank. My lawn equipment and motorcycle would surely love the stuff, though. :-)

Has any of you found changes that really work?
 
I have saw offers of increases in mpg but I have not been confident of any of them that really work. I have an 1999 S10 that the EPA is 28MPG and I can get 37-39 at high altitudes 4500 feet or higher but at low I can get 25-27 MPG
It is standard 4cyl no changes. Would anybody be able to tell me if a injection cut off switch and anything else help MPG?
Is there anyway that a person make the pickup get the great MPG that is at 4500 feet do so at low altitudes??? I would like to know
Thanks

Almost seems to imply that a hot air intake is what you need. I wonder if anyone has done any similar testing. That's a pretty big improvement by going to high altitude.

yes, install an electric Efan(gets rid of the heavy clutch fan) and underdrive pullies.

frees up some hp and torque which means it can get applied to the wheels instead of wasted.

my 95 routenely gets 29 in the summer with those mods + CAI and header.

the 98+ 4 bangers got a head and intake change that gets better mpg so your golden there.

btw im at 400ft above sea level and use E10 fuel.

also DRAFT trucks. i got 42 mpg in mine drafting a charter bus for 3 hours. used about 3.5 gallons of gas haha. thought my fuel guage finnaly broke.

just an FYI these trucks have fuel pump issues due to overheating and cracking. DO NOT let it get below 1/4 tank! its a $300 part alone if you DIY.


anyways back on topic yea they have some of the few stations around here listed. lol some of the comments are just funny...especially the one about E10 shouldn't be stored more than 2 weeks....LOL

Re: List of stations providing ethanol free fuel
 
How are these gas stations able to get ethanol free gas? I thought it was federally mandated to put ethanol in the fuel?

Jay2TheRescue 12-11-2011 11:21 AM

Re: List of stations providing ethanol free fuel
 
There's now a station that's somewhat local to me that has ethanol free! I make my way through here about once a week. I guess this is where I'll be buying most of my fuel now...

https://a7.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphot...12266532_n.jpg

After getting home I checked my average MPG, and I was shocked. over 38 MPG, and I crossed two mountains on the way home after filling up!

Re: List of stations providing ethanol free fuel
 
Well it is like 40 miles away, and I have to cross 2 mountains to get there... I do end up in that area about once a week though, so I should be able to make this a regular fuel stop.

tboss7500 03-26-2012 05:17 PM

Re: List of stations providing ethanol free fuel
 
Great find! I discoverd a couple here in my area that I didn't know about. I use a station near my house that is right outside of a marina. They sell nothing but ethanol free gas in all 3 grades since boaters prefer their gas to be free of ethanol. I know of several boat owners who have had engine work done due to running gas with ethanol. Also I had to have work done to my lawn mower due to running ethanol gas.

tradosaurus 03-27-2012 03:45 AM

Re: List of stations providing ethanol free fuel
 
I found an ethanol free gas station about 20 miles away. The problem is that 87 octane is 50 cents per gallon higher than 10% ethanol.
I did buy some for my lawnmower though.

Jay2TheRescue 03-27-2012 09:38 AM

Re: List of stations providing ethanol free fuel
 
The stations in my area that have ethanol free charge $0.06 to $0.10 extra for ethanol free, which is well worth it for the mileage gains that I get with ethanol free.

trollbait 03-28-2012 07:57 AM

Re: List of stations providing ethanol free fuel
 
The closest station to me on that site only sells it by the 5 gallon jug for around $6+ a gallon. It's also high (93+) octane.

There is also an automotive performance shop in the town north of me that sells methanol and other racing fuels. Likely for similar prices.

VX_Arky 03-28-2013 11:35 AM

Jordan's at 400 Southwest Drive in Jonesboro, Arkansas has added ethanol free gas. Now my VX is really going to get some good MPGs!!!!!

:dance: :dance: :dance:

Janet H 03-29-2013 03:49 PM

Conoco stations in WA carry no-ethanol premium. I agree, fab fuel mileage.

occupant 04-29-2013 10:04 AM

This site only lists one of the five stations I'm aware of in Wichita Falls that deliver 100% gasoline (Carey's Corner, which is a few blocks from where I live and where I fill up most often). I'll check the others they have and will add the other four I know of ASAP. There's Tami's on SW Pkwy at Rhea Rd, Lucky's (same location, opposite corner), a Shell station next to Starbucks on Kemp (believe that, Shell, with no ethanol, and 93 octane premium no less!), and an unbranded station on Loop 325 about a block south from Sheppard's main gate.

Jay2TheRescue 05-02-2013 05:52 PM

If you see stations missing from their list, then by all means add them!

litesong 07-06-2014 08:40 PM

Update to pure-gas.org listings for 100% gasoliine were:

7700 in early February, 2014. About the end of May, they rose to 8000. Now 7 weeks later, listings jumped over 2% to 8175!!! Even fuel restrictive California has a few more stations selling 100% gasoline. Wisconsin, with 709 listings, comprise 8.7% of all U.S. & Canadian listings. Florida, with repeal of some 100% gasoline restrictions, has increased ~ 10% over the last few months.

After my friend had no access to 100% (ethanol-free) gasoline in her Arizona town, a station just opened up!!! So if no states have 100% gasoline near you, put in requests at gas stations to handle 100% gasoline, specially stations with numerous pumps, which more readily, could accommodate & reserve a pump for 100% gasoline.

litesong 07-20-2014 12:24 PM

Florida just added its 500th 100% gasoline station to pure-gas.org, now "only" 209 stations behind Wisconsin. If rates stay the same, Florida will catch Wisconsin in 6.8 years & both states will have 1027 100% gasoline stations. "ethanol in gasoline" industry has passed its maximum. 100% gasoline stations will eventually be in many hundreds(more?) in all states & even several thousands in some states.

Jay2TheRescue 07-20-2014 01:17 PM

I wish there were more near my home.

Ziv 07-22-2014 11:15 AM

Once a year I go on an efficiency run in my 350Z (I used to do it on my way to Florida in my Toyota as well) and for 3 years my best have been 30.5 mpg, 30.9 mpg and 30.4 mpg. Then this year I stumbled onto the pure-gas website and filled up with no ethanol gas. Did the same "protocol", i.e. drove immediately to the highway and drove for a couple hours at 62-63 mph.
34.6 mpg! Sweet! In a sports car that flies! More than 10% better than my previous best.
So I pull up the pure-gas map for my area, and I realize I am in a no ethanol desert. I have to go more than 80 miles to find a station that sells it.

Short order into late August, listings for 100% gasoline at pure-gas.org has leaped to 8436, 9.6% in less than 7 months. Possibly in a year or less, if the EPA keeps its hands off 100% gasoline, pure-gas.org listings should be 10,000 E0 stations or more. People are discovering the worthlessness of the ethanol in gasoline.

Remember, diesel fuel needs to burn in diesel engines, ethanol needs to burn in ethanol engines & 100% gasoline needs to burn in gasoline engines.

trollbait 08-31-2014 08:11 AM

If I don't mind paying for 100 octane racing fuel by the can, I could easily get it. Which is what some of those pure gas listings are.

With the distance and cost to get to an actual pump of it, it would have been cheaper per mile just sticking to local E10.

That's how much the "ethanol in gasoline" industry paid & worked to eliminate intelligent choice for 100% gasoline. With the reduction of E0 to minimal quantities, the "ethanol in gasoline" industry with their diluting policies, has caused pure E0 to rise in price due to its rarity.

However, pure-gas.org lists the comeback of E0, now rising 9.6% in ~ 7 months. People want E0 & are demanding that E0 be served. E0 stations may rise to 10,000 in somewhat over a year. Since new quality gasoline engine cars & gasoline refinings equal or bests ethanol emissions in gasoline engines, the EPA needs to butt out, so E0 can rise ever more. With availability to ~50,000 stations, E0 will reduce in price compared to worthless ethanol & become even more available.

But how much of that increase is actual stations selling road legal fuel, and not race shops selling non-road use fuel by the jug or barrel? Does it take into account the listed stations with recent comments of 'no longer has ethanol free'?

Gasoline has always been a witch's brew of compounds that has changed through the years. Ethanol free gasoline of the '30s would wreck a modern engine if it could start on it. Even now, the mix changes between seasons and regions. Ethanol is just another component of the mix that we actually know about as consumers. How many here knew that gasoline, all octanes, ethanol free or not, contains benzene?

My fillup today in Front Royal, VA... Love the price. Its a lot less than I've been paying lately.

Hey, I used to live there as a kid.

Gas prices spiked up just before the holiday weekend here. $3.319 was the lowest I filled at. It might at $3.369 now.

Jay2TheRescue 08-31-2014 07:57 PM

And I'll bet $3.319 was for E10 and not E0...

Draigflag 08-31-2014 11:00 PM

Ah well, I filled up yesterday too, and it's only 300% more at $10.40 a UK gallon...

Of course, but Virginia now has the second lowest gas taxes in the nation. While Pennsylvania recently increased theirs with a couple more step increases already on the books. Without the new tax increase, the cost per gallon may have dropped below what you just paid.

What I pay may also be higher for being in the RFG area of Philadelphia.

Jay2TheRescue 09-01-2014 04:13 PM

I'll be driving up to Hershey, PA next week probably, and not looking forward to what I'll have to pay for a tank of ethanol free up there. A bonus is that most of the way I'm on Rt 15 at 55 MPH, and I'll get really good mileage.

Since the price collapse for 10% ethanol blends, the price gap compared to E0 widened here in Everett, WA., from about 10% to 12% difference to 40+%! Other parts of the U.S. also such gaps. As of now the price gap is ~20%. Despite the deeply widened price gap, pure-gas.org just surged over 9000 E0 listings for February 15, 2015. If the price gap will narrow further, listings for E0 sources still might get to 10,000 by the beginning of 2016.

Jay2TheRescue 02-15-2015 07:25 PM

Stations in the Shenandoah Valley where I've been buying my E0 have been charging $0.20/gal extra for E0 lately. 2 years ago they were charging between $0.07 and $0.10/gal extra.
