    Most Marinas have non ethanol, I do, Outboards cannot run it. Most all Marinas inland have it. There are gas stations all over that have it and sell more here in this area than the other. My truck gets 20% more milage with it.

    That's a good point Pirate, fuel mileage ratings for passenger vehicles are established using pure gas, not the E-10 junk. This accounts for the frustrating fact that one never realizes the published ratings on a car's window sticker.

    Gas stations are selling both and going back to non ethonal as the best seller. Most marinas now in the South are going back to Non ethanol. It eats 2 cycle outboards alive, not to mention any 2 cycle chain saws etc. I will NOT SELL Ethonal Gasoline and do not put it in my cars. The Manual on my 04 t-bird says aviod the use of it. My old cars from the 50s and 60s sure do not need it. Some States such as Alalaka do not have it at all. Seems several articles are now showing studies that it is far worse on the enviroment that non ethnol. We need things like they used to be dial your octane at Sonoco and you could get 115- 145 if you went to the airport. Here is a link for non ethanol stations all over the country. My F 150 gets 25% better milage with the good stuff. http://pure-gas.org/index.jsp
