I found this topic in another forum and I thought it was an excellent idea. I think many people would benefit from a listing of stations in their area that sell ethanol-free gas. Since the average age of vehicles on the road today has topped eleven years old, many would benefit from this information as well as those who earn their living using gas powered lawn equipment.

No 1994 vehicle is E85 compatible.

In okc, you will generally see gas stations post near the gas price and on the pump that will say something like they have 100% gas or no ethanol

I just saw my first gas station advertising E85 and the price was considerably less than their "ordinary" gas. I drive a 1994 Linclon Towncar. Should I try a tank full?

Check Pure Gas for nationwide reporting.

I know in my area they don't need to lable it as "ethanol added" until it reaches 10%.

You really should learn how to post links.

A lot of times a clerk will tell you their gas is ethanol free when actually it isn't. I had one to tell me this and a tanker driver was unloading at the same time, and he told me they all had ethanol in this area.

This site lists ethanol free stations in the US & Canada. It relies on consumers to put the stations on the list. Call before you go. I checked on one station listed in my area and it did NOT sell ethanol free gasoline.

I guess that would be great for Atlanta-based Gas Buddy members ...
