Listed below is a link to a website that lists service stations selling ethanol free gas. It is a wewbsite that does not advertise or collect revenue, just a guy who wants to help boaters find ethanol free gas. I know that three of the locations listed, one of which is in my home town of Cartersville ;), do sell ethanol free gas. Anyone can add a location if they know of a station that isn't listed. If your outboard doesn't like gas with ethanol take a look at it. Ethanol is also bad for ATVs and lawn equipment.  The link is set for the state of Georgia but you can click on your state in a menu bar at the top of the page.

Nice site! They aren't listed but if anyone gets in the Central Pa area all of the Snedeker gas stations (some of them are Velaro's now) are all ethanol free also.

You can add them to the site yourself if you want.  It might help someone else avoid motor damage.

Can you even get ethanol free gas anymore? All the Kwik Fills in my area used to be ethanol free until the middle of last year, and now they're all 10% just like everywhere else. When we asked about it they said that it was a new law that the ethanol had to be in there, but I'm not sure if this is a federal or state law.

Just a heads up. Our local neighborhood Marathon gas station is ethanol free in Erie PA. I understand most marathon gas stations are ethanol free.

This is great to find ethanol free gas.just know this.I bought from a local store once that had ethanol free gas but it was cheap gas.I actually thought when I had mechanical troubles that there is no way my gas is bad and I knew the trouble was a fuel type issue.It ran like it was lean.Mechanic checked carbs lines filter fuel pump etc.He replaced some lines and primer.This fixed the problem only for a bit.When problem resurfaced he said u may just have bad gas.I put gas from a big name station.no more issues.Yes get ethanol free gas, but cheap gas is not a bargain.I'll use an additive in gas with ethanol before I will buy from that place again.I know of others who use it without issue though.

Outstanding information.

If nothing else it removes a lot of locations from the list of places selling ethonol free gasoline so we will not waste time and energy trying to find a location.

Thanks for posting. :)

Get yourself an ethanol test kit. I got this one from POR-15: http://www.por15.com...roductinfo/ETK/

(This is NOT an ad or endorsement!!!)

I take it with me when on the road; you can do an "on the spot" test in about five minutes.

I tested gas in some of my local stations (the kit also measures water content, the component of "bad gas"). In GTexas the pumps are supposed to be labeled if they're using Ethanol in the gas. I found Exxon Premium in my area to be ethanol free (again, NOT an endorsement of Exxon!!!).

I also use a lot of Sta-Bil. So far no problems - I keep my fingers crossed!

As I understand it, once the fuel separates and water settles out there is no additive that can return it to its opriginal state. If things go that far your only choice is draining the gas and throwing it out. Or donating to your brother-in-law with the hotrod Mustang. :laugh5:

So, you are trying to keep it from separating in the first place.
