It would be nice to be able to search for Ethanol Free gas stations, as this is the ONLY fuel I will use in my boat (at least until I can get a diesel)

I've only ever seen this once. Being that the costs are higher I'd think you could either search by high prices, or look for someplace that advertises this (since they probably wouldn't go through the trouble of offering ethanol free gas and not advertise it).

With current laws in the U.S. regarding ethanol being dependent on location, it is very difficult to have a way to determine ethanol content. Some areas require labeling gasoline with ethanol, some do not. Sometimes the only way of knowing is asking the station owner or the operator, and they may be reluctant to tell you.

We are considering adding other fuel types to the website and apps, however, currently only display the three main grades of gasoline, and diesel. Primarily this is done to keep the price entering process as streamlined as possible.

We are hoping to improve upon this as time goes on though.

I would like to see a price option added for non ethanol fuel. Just like you have for mid-grade and premium fuel.

Assuming this is a local issue, simply start a topic in your local Tampa (and perhaps concurrently in the Florida) discussion category, titled "Locations of ethanol-free stations in the Tampa Area".

In your original post state that the purpose of the thread is to identify locations of stations selling ehtanol-free fuel, and ask that they provide the names and addresses of such stations, and you may want to ask that they include the hours of the station and, perhaps, the current price for ethanol-free fuel.

If you want to post such information yourself (identifying specific stations), do that in a follow-up post in order the original post doesn't become obsolete or burdened with unnecessary information. Keep the original post clean and to the point.

However, you can find the locations of stations selling ethanol-free fuel at the following website:

Ethanol-free stations in Florida (including the Tampa area)

It's just a suggestion, however, as you started two topics, asking to help locate stations selling ethanol-free fuel and bio-diesel fuels, you may want to occasionally post fuel prices to help your fellow Tampa Gas Buddy members be more knowledgeable about fuel prices in your local area; the more information you can provide them, the better they can make their fuel shopping decisions. But that's just a suggestion; that's all. Just a suggestion.
