Post suggestions and comments about pure-gas.org below. I reserve the right to remove them at my discretion, especially if they have a clear political angle. Pure gas is a nonpartisan issue. I'm a left-wing Democrat, many users of this site are right-wing Republicans, even Tea Party, and yet we can all agree that ethanol policy is a mistake. It's not a liberal or conservative policy, it's the result of heavy lobbying by the ethanol industry, like ADM, combined with a massive blunder by the EPA in their attempt to spur the adoption of E85 vehicles back in 2007. We can all get along on this.

Comments about specific stations are deleted – those should go in the station comments. This page is for general comments about the site and pure gas, of interest to all visitors. For example, if a station no longer serves pure gas, just remove it. If you know of one that's not listed, don't comment here - add it!

Beth - no such decision was made. If fuel has ethanol in it, it should not be listed here, regardless of additives. If ValvTect truly contains ethanol it should be removed. – SamMadison, WI (April 16, 2014)
Beth, I talked with a customer service exec at ValvTect. He said that the ValvTect brand is placed on marine fuels when it meets their specifications and contains their additives but that it was up to the supplier as to whether or not the gas would have ethanol in it or not. Obviously the need for ValvTect additives is reduced if the fuel does not contain ethanol. So if a marina or service facility is listed on Pure-Gas.org as selling ValvTect then chances are the fuel does not contain ethanol. However if you encounter a listed station selling ethanol fuel then please remove the listing. If in doubt then do a test of the fuel to be sure. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (April 16, 2014)
one thing I do notice is that is if you overlay the map from pure-gas.org with the 'gas heat map' from gas buddy, some of the most expensive gas comes from states with the 10% ethanol. I Think of California and Connecticut/New York Area. They pay so much for gas and its not even the real stuff. – kevinct (April 19, 2014)
found this map of the reformulated area

http://www.eia.gov/petroleum/gasdiesel/reformulated_map.cfm – kevinct (April 19, 2014)
A more detailed map of reformulated and required ethanol areas can be found at www.api.org/~/media/files/policy/aternatives/us-gasoline-requirements-map.pdf

Either way both maps show large regions of the country that just don't require any form of ethanol or reformulated gas. It just goes to show the unintended consequences of the RFS and the forced blending of ethanol into the nation's fuel supply. Election season is just around the corner. If this issue means anything to you then you should find the candidate most willing to repeal the RFS and restore our right to choose. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (April 19, 2014)
Esso now has ethanol in their regular and mid-grade in Canada – John ArrayetMontreal (April 21, 2014)
WSB Radio in Atlanta reported this morning that "A $500,000 study paid for by the federal government and released Sunday in the peer-reviewed Journal Nature Climate Change concludes that biofuels made with corn residue release 7% more greenhouse gases in the early years compared with conventional gasoline."

The article further states that the ethanol industry and the Obama administration is in denial over this report and are trying to make arguments that the report is in-correct even though it has been substantiated by other scientific sources.

Just one more reason to avoid using ethanol blended fuels. The article can be found at www.wsbradio.com/ap/ap/political/study-fuels-from-corn-waste-not-better-than-gas/nfdtD/ and is a real eye opener. – Megan LockeConyers, Georgia (April 21, 2014)
article posted on autoevolution.com/news

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has finally admitted officially that the ethanol in the E15 fuels have serious negative impacts on the engines running it, apparently with these effects being even more severe in smaller engines. That is, motorcycle and ATV engines. – dukestermemphis (April 24, 2014)
Here's an interesting article: http://www.forbes.com/sites/jamesconca/2014/04/20/its-final-corn-ethanol-is-of-no-use/ – JohnFort Collins, CO (April 24, 2014)
John in Fort Collins, Co, That truly is a good article. Thanks for posting it here and I hope everyone gets a chance to read it. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (April 24, 2014)
