I think Fed or NY has passed a law that all gasoline has 10% ethanol. I drove around looking for a station that did not have it, no luck.

I use the GasBuddy phone app to submit prices. After I submit the prices I am prompted with a question, "Does this station have regular unleaded gas?" Are they asking if the regular gas is without ethanol?

Skyjunky, I've run high ethanol blends in two non-FFVs for years and haven't seen any significant change in mileage at any blend. This has saved me a ton of money.

there is usually 2 to 4 stations that would be in your city I have 4 stations in my city and I live in a VERY small town... a lot of the Municipal Airports have 92% LL NO Ethanol Gas. If you know some one that fly's they may be able to help. It is the Best gas that WILL not hurt your engine and you will get More MPG's

Found a site that lists stations that sell fuel without ethanol.

http://pure-gas.org/

There is a petition on that site to keep fuel w/o ethanol available. If anyone is interested.

Does anyone know of fuel brands that are do have Ethanol?

I would prefer to buy fuel without it. However, most of the stations by me have it. I live in NJ/work in PA (Philly-Bucks County area)

I haven't found such a station within this area and ethanol is mandated by the gestopo EPA as part of gasoline nationwide now.

There is more of a need for the site to list E85 prices.

Because there is no such thing as pure gas.

"Typical gasoline contains about 150 different chemicals, including benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylene, which also are known as the BTEX compounds." - Gasoline Fact Sheet
