I'd like to get regular gas, but everything is E10 in my area. I would have to drive quite a distance to find a station with regular (non ethanol blend) gas.

Obviously FUNTOOZH has been drinking some of the ethanol before it's prepared for use with gasoline. Switching to regular gasoline would probably only increase gas mileage by 2-4%.

Is it worth getting E10? In most areas of the country, E10 is ALL you can get. There's not much, if any choice about it! The question should be is it worth getting regular/E0? The answer is probably no because there are very few sources of E0.

I've been experimenting with a product called Ethanol Defense that promises to address the problems that ethanol fuel creates. To date, I have not driven enough miles to say if it works or not though very initial results are promising. Obviously since they are selling a product based on the premise that ethanol is bad, they will maximize the claims against the fuel just as other companies do. That said, I still think it would be interesting for people to at least read what they say.

My preference is to have no ethanol but the fact is that only E10 is available so my choice is E10 or nothing.

Good Morning funtoozh,

Your Topic is confusing and, quite frankly, in error. In South Carolina, Regular 87 Octane gasoline is available widely as "up to 10% ethanol" and is sold at the lowest price of all the fuels sold. Regular 87 Octane non-ethanol (E-0) is also sold in South Carolina, but the prices vary from slightly above Regular 87 Octane ethanol (E-10) to above ethanol 91 Octane Premium (E-10).

To answer your question, I use ONLY non-ethanol 87 Octane Regular in my vehicles and small engines.

Take Care :-). MGY

We don't have any choice in this area since all gasoline here has at least a 10 percent quantity of ethanol in it.

??????

do you have it backwards ?

E10 is less that E0 , E0 is the expensive one

so if you have it backwards , no it's not better to buy E0 , around here, it's around .75 per gal more than regular

Well said @Gas_Buddy! I agree. E-10 is in MOST Gasoline available to the public. Everywhere I go (except for a select few- which I prefer) sells Gasoline with up to 10% Ethanol a.k.a "E-10". However, you live in Wichita Kansas area, you are fortunate in one area of living in KANSAS. Kansas doesn't have a very strict mandate (if any mandate at all) on Ethanol added to Gasoline. Just like South Carolina, Tennessee & Surrounding States in that SE area, you can find many Gas Stations that don't carry Ethanol tainted Gasoline (Ethanol FREE Gas). I know from my travels (I show dogs across USA) that Kansas is one State that I was able to find Ethanol Free Gasoline in, with little to NO trouble at all. It was locally available at typical/public Gas Stations & at little to no cost increase. Kansas also had "E-10" available for a lower rate at some stations, because the Ethanol Free is a bit more expensive so some people would just get the Regular Gas with E-10 to save a dollar. But I would certainly go for the Ethanol Free if it were easily & locally accessible! IMHO Ethanol is bad! I don't like it!

Isn't "E-10" regular in most parts of the United States? Which do you "prefer" to use? If gasoline, with up to 10 percent ethanol, is what's sold at the gas stations, does it really matter what you prefer to use? Or are you really asking: "If you can get non-ethanol gas, would you be willing to pay the difference in price rather than buy gas with up to 10 percent ethanol (the fuel most generally available")?

As for "is a worth getting E 10 ?", if that's what's sold locally, and you can't get non-ethanol gas, then isn't it obvious that getting "E 10" is worth it? It seems it would either be worth it or you're driving.

Sorry, but the original post doesn't make much sense to me. Not as written.
