fyi, just found this:
see ... Ethanol-free gas stations in the U.S. and Canada
Yes Paul, I use it all the time in the Dino. I get it at the Marathon station in Boca Raton on Federal Highway, north of Glades.
A lot of gas station that are close to the Intracoastal/Ocean will usually have it.
It's called Recreational Fuel.
I have used ethanol free gas in my 348 for the last few fill-ups. To find stations that sell ethanol free gas in your area, you can go to the web site Ethanol-free gas stations in the U.S. and Canada. They also have an app available.
someone told me this recently:
Ethanol has been in our fuels up to 10% in most regions for at least a couple decades.
Wonder if it is true?
I go to Gate Stations, a few here in the Jacksonville Orange Park area have it.
fyi from another fchatter:
question: for a 2001 vehicle is it worth being concerned about the ethanol?
answer: Anything under 2007 is what I read for concerns.
check stations around boat ramps.
many sell it labled for marine use.
i get 90 octane
also marine gas does not go bad I have been told as car gas does. Since I have so many cars I have to use sta-bil all of the time.
Bought some for my boat....
US27 and Griffin Road, there's a station with "recreational fuel".... I used it once, and decided it wasn't worth the price premium if you use gas often.
It seems the problem with Ethanol is that it eventually separates from the gas and absorbs water moisture. Since I use fuel stabalizer in the tanks, that keeps the separation and water issue in check between uses. If you have something you arent going to use, whatever fuel you fill in it and leave is bad. Drain the carbs before storage of anything, ethanol or not!
Heres another link
Find ethanol free gas near you!
Looks like it is mainly marinas in FL. I know that marinas rip you off since that is the only way boats can get get gas unless you can get them on a trailer and take them to a regular gas station.
There is a station in Stuart that sells recreational fuel and it is a regular gas station. Next time I am up their I will see what the difference in price is. Last ime I bought some in Marathon in the Keys at a normal station, it was about 40 cents more per gallon.
I found a Shell gas station that will be selling non ethanol gasoline, 90 octane, within the next few weeks. they are located in Jupiter, on Indiantown Road, west of the railroad tracks.
I will post it when it is available.
Hey all, my company developed a product to fix the phase separation issue in ethanol blended fuels. Products :: Cyclo :: C44/44D/44E From the test results i've seen, it rocks for correcting the issues that occur with e-10 and e-85 fuels.
I'm not aware of anyone in the area with it on the shelf ready for purchase though, but i could find out or help get it in someplace local if you guys would like.
let us know.
Great news! They may need to ration ....
let me know what areas you guys are in, i know one of our accts can bring it in by the 6 pack and they are all up and down the state.
