California only has 18 stations.  All extreme north or extreme south.  I'm in the middle.  Rats.

Most of California doesn't sell Ethanol gas. Yes they have it but our everyday gas we buy is Ethanol free as California does not import gas from other states and must refine the gas used in CA in CA.  That's why we get to pay such higher prices for our special summer and winter blends.

So you're saying the Chevron 91 octane I put in my motor is ethanol free? 

I believe so.  The only ethanol at most stations around here have that stupid green leaf pump stating that it's ethanol.....and unless it's printed on the pump that it contains ethanol, then it is ethanol free.  And being that you have to refine corn to get ethanol, I don't see our state passing any new laws letting them build a new refinery for that when they won't even let us import gas from other states.  Yep gotta love those high gas prices we pay.

You could be right.  I see nothing on Ethanol and Chevron 91 in California. 

 

Sorry to jump in, but found California is not required to label their ethanol gasoline. So be careful with that 91 octane:

Well that's disappointing.  Not surprising though...

As an FYI, all Stewarts Shops in northern NY have ethanol-free premium (91 octane).

Can anyone update this list?

I live in southern WV and ran across a Gas station/bait & tackle shop, and they do sale ethonal free gas and I would like to pass it on. 

I'm not very computer savvy, but here's the info if someone could get it on the site.

 

J&J Kountry Korner

Rt-16 Crab Orchard WV

304-253-4583

It's a Citgo station

 

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Pure Gas also has an App for Iphone or Android.

 

I want to add--This goes for basically everyone but especially for those of you that use or must use 93 octane as I do . BUY only from name brand gas stations that sell a lot of gas. Remember Phase Separation occurs at around 30 days. Doesn't matter if the gas is in your boat or in a stations tank--it still happens. Why name brand? Many of them treat their gas already to prevent phase separation AND they do not cut corners when it comes to filtration at the tank. Do you really think a Mom and Pop independent station would spend thousands on a filtration system and the annual costs to maintain them!!!

I was talking to a friend that works in a hardware that repairs small engines. He said that he gets a lot of engines to work on and most of them use the Mom and Pop gas station down the road. I noticed that when I used them, my boat didn't run as good. I went back to ethanol gas and it does great. I do use the additives.

Because of the issues with ethanol most small engine shops will tell you don't use it. Because a small engine sets for long periods of time, phase separation is likely occur damaging the motor. So unless you run a small engine often, it's best to drain the gas out when you're done. You can find non-ethanol pre-mix in a can in many stores for small 2-strokes but it is expensive.

We were vacationing in Ocean Springs MS and there was a gas station that only sold ethanol free gas. It was about 25 cents a gallon more than RUG in the area.

That is the first I ever saw with just ethanol free.  I believe all the new WaWA have ethanol free pumps. Just look before pumping.  We have several in the Davie area.

All the Wawa's here (jax, fl) have EF, but it's spendy.  The Gate stations also have it and the price is within a few cents of Mid-Grade.  I've actually started running it full time in my Ram 1500 5.7L and see about 3mph increase.

I know this is an old thread, but I was surprised to see it.  Here in upstate NY, the premium fuel at a lot of stations is ethanol-free.  I don't have to go anyplace special.  I can get it at my local Stewarts.

Casey's General Stores are almost everywhere.

Central and Upper Midwest...sure. But the closest one to me is half an hour away.

 

Luckily - the local Speedway (5 minutes) carries ethanol free.

Keep in mind that in this ethanol mix world not everything is as it seems. Just some points I would like to bring up being in the trucking industry.

1) Gas station volume is more important than ethanol free gas. Just because it’s “ethanol free” doesn’t mean it’s great for your motor. If the station only sells it for recreational use, the volume is way down and the gas is old gas. Old gas collects moisture too and some summer additives are just as harmful as ethanol when unused.

2) “Ethanol free” gas is delivered in a tanker that may or may not have delivered ethanol gas. In other words it may still have some ethanol in it. They don’t wash out gasoline tankers between loads. Treat all gas with an additive as if it has ethanol.

3) A lot of “ethanol free” gas is much higher in octane. This causes your motor to run hotter than normal and ignite in the cylinder faster. This could cause a timing issue or other problems. Make sure your motor can run on premium or higher if that is what’s available in “ethanol free”.
