  • Citgo gas-- pure?

    My local Citgo gas station does not have any ethanol stickers on the pumps. Does this mean it is pure gas? It is two blocks from my house. Have I scored one for my Stude? There is also a Citgo station on my way to work. I will check there to see if it is the same.

    In my area the pumps have a sticker that says 100% gas. It's usually about 50 cents higher too.

      This 7-11 type store does not say 'Pure Gas' anywhere. Prices are normal average. I thought that pumps had to say ethanol added, in some way or another, if it is present.

        Around this area, it is illegal to sell gasoline for cars with less than 10% ethanol. I do not know if it is on the pumps or not (probably is).

          It totally depends on the County and State you live in and availability of Real Gas, maybe in Indiana, it's like here where it totally IS allowed, and NO Vehicles require Emissions Checks, of ANY Year.

            In our area if the gasoline comes from a local refinery in Nanicoke the premium gas has no ethanol so I only use gasoline that I know comes from there . Have to pay for the premium but it’s worth it in the long run . By the way there are about 30 tankers a day go out of that refinery and take gasoline to the Niagara Falls NY area so if our US friends in western NY want to figure out where these trucks are taking the gasoline so they can have ethanol free gas , the trucks cross the Lewiston Bridge .

              State laws determine if a sticker for ethanol is required or not. Many states require such stickers.

                  According to pure-gas.org, Indiana does not require a sign indicating ethanol is added. Oh well. Off to Countrymark I go......

                    Around here the stations that have non ethanol fuel are proud of it. They have signs letting people know. Of course, it is at least 20 cents higher per gallon.

                      Around here; about 100 miles North of NY City in the Hudson Valley we have Stewart Stations that sell 91 No Alcohol gas. It is more $$ then 91 Octane at other stations that sell 91 with Alcohol. About equal to stations selling 93; the highest we have. I do not know what they are using to boost the Octane. The pump has a sign stating no Alcohol . My lawn mower likes it; not that the grass has needed much mowing this Summer. Fine by me I have been cutting grass since 11 years old or so.

                        Ron - You are enough north of me to be out of what is considered to be the metro area. Besides not getting alcohol free gasoline, we have additional taxes on the gas, vehicle registrations, etc.

                          Western Canada British Columbia : I am fortunate to have several Commercial Card Lock facilities within easy distance and I am able to get premium with highway taxes, no ethanol for $1.15 per litre for our daily drivers and Marked Premium (no highway taxes) no ethanol for 1.04 per litre. Remember this is our dollar not US.

                            There is a Citgo about 1/2 mile from my house that sells corn-free gas. Higher octane and higher price. Doesn't matter to me-I run it in my 51 Ford F1 and I will run it in my 64 Avanti whenever it gets done.

                              I live in the country. Course yall probably done figgered that out. Anyway there's a small fillin station and grocery store almost directly across the street (street being a 2 lane blacktop) from my house. When I started looking around for the good gas, I found some about 15 miles away But he later on discontinued 93 octane and I happened to see the list mentioned in post 8. (I will go ahead and say I had been driving there several years) Guess what The station across the street had 93 octane non water gas all the time
