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 Democratic Socialist, 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 just fine.

Comments about specific stations are deleted – those should go in the station comments. If you find a station listing in error, update it or remove it. This page is for general comments about the site and pure gas, of interest to all visitors. Also, comments requesting that gas prices be added will be deleted. Read about this site or just think for a minute about how this site is updated. Prices would never be accurate on this site.

Well, I must disagree with Gary Bard in NB. I'm looking at Petro Canada's website and the only mention I can find regarding ethanol reads as follows "We use ethanol in our gasoline where legislation requires its use and where conditions warrant." So while some provinces and municipalities may require ethanol blending, others do not like New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and I believe Yukon & Northwest territories. Petro Canada's website did say that E10 pumps were clearly marked with yellow labels. In my opinion we should not do a wholesale de-listing of Petro Canada just yet. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (July 14, 2016)
It would be extremely helpful if you could add prices at the stations. Users could post prices like on GasBuddy. Love the app otherwise. – John Mark McNairFlowood MS (July 17, 2016)
Sam, July 11 has come and gone, time to remove the banner on the EPA comment period? – dukestermemphis (July 17, 2016)
Damn, July is going fast!!! – SamSanta Fe, NM (July 18, 2016)
Must be the heat (started to say humidity, but ya'll don't have it in NM). – dukestermemphis (July 19, 2016)
Hi, just found your site. Very helpful, but I'm running a 1973 yamaha two stroke with a 3.4 gal tank. Can you tell me which stations have dedicated hoses for E0. Yes esso and she'll premium is E0, but you flush the E10 in the hose into tank. No big issue if you are taking 10 gallons, but most of my fills are 2.5 gal (10 litres). See my problem!! – RonCanmore (July 20, 2016)
Ron in Canmore, This is an issue that comes up from time to time. Like you said for folks like me who drive cars and trucks a little left over E10 in the hose doesn't mean much. But for folks like you and Sam then It can make a difference. Some people will carry a small gas can so they can fill it first and then pour it into their car later.

The hose issue is generally determined on a station by station basis. A few chains like Race Trac, QT, WAWA, etc. will always have separate hoses. But the name brands like EXXON, Esso, Shell, Chevron, Texaco, Marathon, etc. are normally franchised independently owned stations and the pump design will vary from station to station.

Take a look at the individual listings of the stations in your area. You may find folks have posted comments about whether the hose is dedicated or shared. If not then make a note of it and you can participate by updating the station listing yourself. As Sam has said this is a user driven site and is dependent on all of us to keep the listings updated. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (July 21, 2016)
To add to Jonathan's comment, if you're not on a road trip on the bike, I would keep a 5/10 gal portable tank, carry to station in car, run 2-3 gallons into your car to flush the hose, then fill the portable, fill the bike at home. – dukestermemphis (July 21, 2016)
While traveling through North Carolina last week, I was told by two gas station operators that only 90 octane non-ethanol gas was available now despite the 93 noted on Pure-Gas.org. In SC, the situation was similar. An oil distributor told me only 91 ethanol-free was available in SC. I told him I bought 93 last week and he said that the label on the pump was old. So what is the real story? – Dennis OldlandSouth Carolina (July 30, 2016)
Dennis in SC, It is true that the availability of 93 octane E0 fuel is becoming far and few between. Like wise 93 octane E0 is also becoming more and more expensive at the retail level. Much of it depends on the refinery and terminal serving a particular area. For instance along coastal NC 93 octane has virtually disappeared and many stations had to scramble to install new dedicated tanks for 90/91 octane. However there are a few suppliers that make 93 octane E0 available in the upstate region of the Carolinas. Its not completely gone yet but I believe it is being phased out as a general sale product. I have tried to work my way through the listings in the Carolinas to see if any of the 93 postings needed to be updated and some of them were. If you encounter any stations that need updating then please do so.

As you look through the various state listings then you'll get a sense of what is predominantly available. 91 octane E0 is widely available in NY, Mn, Wi, Mo, etc. REC 90 octane E0 is widely available throughout Fl, Ga, and Mi and parts of the Carolinas.

93 octane E0 will not fully go away. Specialty boutique fuel suppliers like Sunoco and VP Racing will keep it in their line of high octane fuels. Those fuels tend to be sold in five gallon containers and are quite expensive.

Keep in mind that to produce 93 octane E10, one part ethanol is blended with nine parts pure 90 octane gas. So if your vehicle or bike is designed to tolerate 93 octane E10 then most likely it will run better on 90 or 91 octane E0. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (July 30, 2016)
