Ethanol

The BP in Foley Alabama is advertising 100% gas no ethanol the 89 octane ,a nice gesture and hopefully a trend starter for other gas retailers

Quick note: that's www.pure-gas.org for me.

Nothing is listed near me, but it looks like the site is all about user submissions. So if you know of a gas station...

I'm lucky in that the station closest to me has pure gasoline...also offers E10, but I stick with the pure gas. MUCH less troublesome for my boat, bike, weed trimmer, leaf blower, lawn mowers, et al. Price difference was only 4 cents per gallon at last check. Since pure gas contains 10% more energy, a 4 cent premium for the good stuff makes sense and cents!

They did it

My second tank of BP 100% gas ,I think better milage and the bike runs better ,
I think . But remember when we went from pure gas to ethanol the price went up but cleaner ( nonscence burning ) well once again the price goes up for the pure somehow this in my opinion don,t add up ,lol,it,s 40 cent,s a gal more now or roughly 9 cents a liter .
