Ethanol free gas additive please

Recommended Posts

Howdy, I just found a station that sells non-corn gas.  I also believe they don't add any other additives/detergents.  What are you guys adding to your corn free gas? Thanks in advance

Where in NH did you find corn free? The only places I've seen it are Pease Tradeport and  Haffner's. At Pease it's airplane fuel and ~$10 a gallon, Haffner's its 110 octane race fuel and close to $8 a gallon.

Gasoline additive packages are added at the fuel depot or refinery depending on the brands. Ethanol is blended at the refinery.  I doubt seriously that a independant small retailer is buying untreated transport loads of gasoline. Small retailer I would be more worried about contaminated fuel tanks and water.

E10 (10% ethanol) gasoline has been mandatory in the US since 2011, E15 (15%) is being implemented this year. What is important to remember is the pump has a disclaimer stating the gasoline may contain ethanol.

Lucas and Stabil are both good products.

@WRBTom,  there is no disclaimer and the proximity of the station makes me think there is decent turnover.  Octane is also 91.  Suspect I will be staying with stabil

That makes more sense, 91 octane could be found around here up until about 2 years ago, now everything has ethanol

This is the same thing I use in my Pro XS, and my almost 40 year old 15hp Johnson tiller on my johnboat. I use Ethanol free gas 100% of the time but never hurts to be over cautious.

Many people love Stabil and we've never had issues with it, but several mechanics recommended "seafoam". so we made the switch and havent looked back, i have a 94 merc 60hp and she runs amazing even with 300+ hours on it. 

just my experiences though.
