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.

Regarding "last update now showing on station listings", I would like to add a word of caution, check the detail section first to be sure the last update is a positive result. What I mean by this is that there are multiple listings for stations, airports, and marinas that may be out of fuel currently but still listed because they plan to restock or they are a seasonal business. Sometimes the last post about a station is a remark about them being out of fuel.

Don't drive out of your way before you have verified availability. If the phone number is missing then help by looking it up and adding it to the site. Also help keep the listings current by posting every time you visit a station.

Likewise don't forget to give the stations you visit a Pure-Gas card which Sam has provided the template for. They're easy to print off your computer.

Check with your state's governing agency that oversees gasoline sales. The state of Georgia actually advertises Pure-Gas.org to help folks looking for E0 gas. Your state may not be aware of it and may like to know about it. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (January 27, 2015)
Really like the changes - one more suggestion (to give more room for station name and street address) would be to truncate the update column down to just date (leaving time in the detail section only). My opinion is most users, most of the time only are primarily interested in the date the station was updated. – dukestermemphis (January 28, 2015)
Good point, dukester, done. – SamMadison, WI (January 28, 2015)
Man - that was VERY fast !! – dukestermemphis (January 28, 2015)
Is there any way we can request ethenol free gas from gas stations or anything? I'd like more ethenol free sources nearby instead of driving 20 miles to get ethenol free gas! I drive a scooter I souped up for racing, I want ethenol free sources because my engine works 30% better with it! Email me! – MikeRoslindale, MA (January 30, 2015)
OK, racing scooters is just plain COOL. – SamMadison, WI (January 30, 2015)
yup, the price difference between 10% ethanol and ethanol free has widened in my neck of the woods. The good stuff's price didn't drop as fast or as far as the 10% ethanol. – JimmyEastern Shore of Maryland (February 1, 2015)
@Mike in Roslindale, MA - I think the only way to get a station to provide it is to get enough people to request it and/or boycott stations that don't sell ethanol free gas. The old vote with your wallet approach.

I don't know if this has been mentioned elsewhere, but be aware that pumps with a common hose that delivers ethanol blends as well as ethanol free will have a hose full of whatever the last person bought. That means you may be dumping an ethanol blend of low grade when you think you're buying high test ethanol free. Not so bad in a 20 gallon truck tank, but for a scooter you're getting a higher percentage of what you're trying to avoid. So it pays to be prepared - carry a gas can and put 1/2 gallon of fuel in that at the beginning, then dump that in your car. – JimmyEastern Shore of Maryland (February 1, 2015)
Since October, 2013, Pennsylvania has increased E0 sources from 48 to 83, an increase of 73%! They have moved past three other states in total E0 sources. Congratulations to Pennsylvania. – litesongEverett, WA (February 1, 2015)
......we may see the decline of availabilty of lower E0 octanes..... – Jonathan Lathbury, Atlanta, Georgia (October 14, 2013)------From a long time ago, Jonathan posted the truth. Even states that seemingly have lots of E0 sources, 87 octane E0 is very often in short supply. Considering that ethanol has an octane rating of 114, blending ethanol with octane 84 E0 to make 87 octane 10% ethanol blend is strongly ineffective from a scientific perspective......84 opposed to 114. Of course, ethanol can't function in a gasoline engine designed for 87 octane. Of course again, 84 octane gasoline isn't optimally burning in a gasoline engine designed for 87 octane. Yeah, "octane 87 10% ethanol blend"........THE FAT FAKE FUEL! – litesongEverett, WA (February 1, 2015)
