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! Also, comments requesting that gas prices be added will be deleted. Read the About page  or just think for a minute about how this site is updated.

as of autumn of 2014, all Esso fuels have ethanol – timbarrie ontario (March 22, 2015)
OK, I just deleted the little back and forth between Jonathan and litesong; Jonathon took the "risk of bringing politics into the discussion", which is fine, and I've got the comment delete button. *POOF* – SamMadison, WI (March 24, 2015)
Just bought E-Zero 89 for the first time yesterday. I am driving a 99 integra and I swear the response and power at low throttle were improved, and my gas mileage seems to have gone up a little bit. It was 3.59 a gallon at the Planet Mini Mart on route 8. The strangest thing of all is my engine seems like it is running very smooth and quiet compared to the usual. I really hope that this gains momentum and 87 octane e zero becomes readily available. – RonButler,PA (March 24, 2015)
While I use E0 whenever possible and specifically for my motorcycles and other equipment like lawn mower and such, I dont always have E0 access for my car, so I live with that. When I do, I see a significanf MPG improvemnt. The being said.... Last week we drove from Orl to Mia which I have done many times, and I filled up with usual 87oct with standard E10 label at a neighborhood 7-11 station with no brand name. To my surprise, I got some of the best MPG I've had in LONG time. So my question is: while fueling stations are required ( at least in Fl) to lable E content, are they no required to do so for E0? I ask because this filllup and the MPG experienced indicate little or no E in that fuel. I have no other explanation to base this on. I know it because I have used that station many times, and for the same trip as its located right by my entrance to the highway, and my driving pattern for that 244mi trip has been consistent for many years. Any thoughts on this? – JaimeWinter Park, Fl (March 25, 2015)
And I meant to add... For the return trip Mia to Orl the very next day, I filled up at a Marathon in Hialeah, same 87 oct. My MPG dropped slightly by ~3mpg. This was a mixed fillup, I had ~ 5gal left from the prev fillup In a 13G tank. So I suspect my theory prob still stands correct about the poss non-labled E0. – JaimeWinter Park, Fl (March 25, 2015)
Jaime, I think a lot of times those labels say "May contain up to 10% ethanol." So, that means that it is possible the gas didn't contain any ethanol at all for that batch. E0 doesn't have to be labeled because it doesn't have oxygenates added to it, though some retailers choose to add a label to it so people know it is E0. The station I go to does not label their 87 octane as ethanol free, but I've called and confirmed that's all they sell in that octane. The pump, though still has a sticker that indicates there may be up to 10% ethanol in the fuel because the 85 octane does contain ethanol. – JohnFort Collins, CO (March 25, 2015)
Jamie in Winter Park, Fl, To piggy back on what John commented on, there is no guarantee that E10 labeled gasoline actually contains 10% ethanol. The suppliers and terminals are not required to wait on a fresh supply of ethanol to blend into their fuel in order for them to deliver gasoline out to the retailers. Consequently the same is true for E85. I have seen article after article stating that E85 was 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline. The fact is E85 ranges from 51% to 83% ethanol. So fuel economy can potentially be all over the place when using E85 in "flex fuel" vehicles. It all has to do with ethanol supply availability at the time gasoline is loaded and ready to ship. Anecdotally I have heard stories of unscrupulous suppliers that blended more than 10% ethanol into their E10 gasoline deliveries.

When in doubt its best to test your fuel content with one of Gail's Fuel Tester kits.

As for E0 supply in Florida, its been my experience that the Racetrac/Raceway stations do the best job holding the line on price for E0 gas. WAWA and Gate stations tend to be a bit higher but consistent on pricing. Most of the other stations are independents and consequently their E0 prices can be considerably higher than E10 pricing.

I filled up with usual 87oct with standard E10..... To my surprise, I got some of the best MPG I've had in LONG time.... – Jaime, Winter Park, Fl (March 25, 2015)......I've also noted that occasionally, tho overall mpg in my 4 cars, show an 8%, 8%, 7%, & 5% gain, E0 over E10. Fuel-testers often mentioned E10 is sometimes E20, due to double blending mistakes & ethanol blenders have been taken to court for ethanol blends exceeding 60%! Its very likely, some E10, as well as being over-blended, is under-blended(E5) or even not ethanol blended at all! In other words, do not make bets that E10 is E10. But bet that long term E0/E10 mpg ratio will be greater than 1.03 in favor of E0..... hence, 1.08, 1.08, 1.07 & 1.05. – litesongEverett, WA (March 25, 2015)
Just bought E-Zero 89 for the first time.....the response and power at low throttle were improved.... my gas mileage.... gone up a little bit....my engine seems like it is running very smooth and quiet – Ron, Butler,PA (March 24, 2015).....Drivers have got to stop being surprised that 100% ethanol-free gasoline(E0) is better than E10, as used in gasoline engines. Gasoline engine engineers designed & built low octane low compression ratio gasoline engines to burn E0 efficiently. Ethanol engine engineers designed & built high 114 octane high compression ratio(16:1) ethanol engines to burn 100% ethanol engines efficiently. Ethanol, as used(not burned efficiently) in gasoline engines.... fails. Only "ethanol in gasoline industry" & EPA propaganda says ethanol gives as much btu energy in a gasoline engine as in ethanol engines. You would NOT use 114 octane E0(does such a fluid exist?) in your 87 octane low compression ratio gasoline engine. You should not use ethanol in your 87 octane low compression ratio gasoline engine(diluted to 10% or not). – litesongEverett, WA (March 25, 2015)
