    Talking The list of ethanol-free gas stations in your area

    Thought it might helps you to find ethanol-free gas stations in your city.

    Not going to be any in my town, as 10% ethanol is an idiot regulation here in Spokane. We have to pay more for lower fuel economy and no net gain for the environment when the energy cost to produce ethanol is factored in. Big Agribusiness and sheep/dweeb voters together have ruined our fuel supply.

    It gets better, Jack! The EPA has now approved E15!

    [Quote]
    Thorough testing has now shown that E15 does not harm emissions control equipment in newer cars and light trucks." [End Quote]
    The agency will decide in November whether or not to permit 15% ethanol use in cars and light trucks from 2001 to 2006 model years. No waiver is expected for older vehicles because there is no testing data to support the waiver, according to the EPA.

    In the vicinity of Lake Erie, Ohio, Pa and New York, United Refining Company distributes through Kwik-Fill, Red Apple, Country Fair and Keystone Brands. 100% U.S. crude refined in Pennsylvania and ethanol free until the gubmint forces them otherwise. Hard to add their 400+ locations to the list.

    You just got to love how Archer-Daniels-Midland has pulled the strings that move America.

    Oh! Did you notice that corn-on-the-cob was a little more expensive recently?

    Well Brad, maybe you should try buying your corn from the Amish instead of the local market. As to the cost of corn going up as ethanol usage is increased; that's why there were riots earlier this year all over Mexico. Corn products have gone up considerably and that's a staple of the Mexican diet. The government expects food prices to rise sharply as Corn and other food crops are used to produce fuel.

    That list of stations doesn't even list California at all. Why am I not surprised?

    I do not trust this list as accurate.
    I checked a few of the listings personally, and they were ordinary chain gas stations with today's 'normal' gasoline cut with ethanol.
    One was just a run of the mill BP station.
    The list is a good starting point, though.

    None in NY within 90 miles of me. I live in a part of the state that requires 10% ethanol in all gasoline. I just bought some of that stuff this afternoon. Regular was $3.009 for self-serve, brand X at a supermarket fueling station.

    Just a quick question, is braided flex hose (the rubber inside of it) immune to ethanol? Also, isn't Shell's 93 octane ethanol free?

    Question 1) Not necessarily. Only if it is of recent manufacture with a modern rubber compound.
    Question 2) Around here it is not ethanol free (has at least 10%).
