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.

Another successful long distance trip on only E0 gas. I drove the '92 Honda Civic 1930 miles from Georgia up through the back country of Virginia and West Virginia into Pennsylvania and back. The car averaged 42.8 MPG and one tank actually hit 61.8 MPG! Prices usually were just below $3 per gallon for 87 octane. However I did pay $3.55.9 for 93 octane in Northern, Va and $3.89.9 per gallon for 91 octane in Mechanicsburg, Pa. But at 42+ MPG I didn't sweat it too much. This little car really seems to love E0 gas. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (June 27, 2015)

This little car really seems to love E0 gas. – Jonathan Lathbury, Atlanta, Georgia (June 27, 2015)........Since the 10% ethanol blend(E10) price crash last year(now rising prices), E0/E10 price percentage has dramatically increased. ANY move in E10 prices, seems to be an excuse to widen the E0/E10 price percentage. Our E0 prices have been $3.70 (yesterday, $3.50), at my favorite, low-priced E0 source, while E10 has been below $3. Yeah, my Ford Festiva averaged 42mpg with E10. Burning E0, Festiva averaged 46mpg, with a high of 57mpg. – litesongEverett, WA (June 28, 2015)
I suspect the price gap between E0 & E10 blend that Litesong referenced is a reflection of Summer need and use for E0 product. Stations located in areas near lakes tend to raise their E0 rates to capitalize on the boat market. Other stations will adjust their rates for the lawn garden and farm equipment needs. Of course this isn't restricted to retail dealers. I suspect suppliers also do this type of Summer wholesale price adjusting. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (June 28, 2015)
.....the price gap between E0 & E10 blend that Litesong referenced is a reflection of Summer need and use for E0 product. – Jonathan Lathbury, Atlanta, Georgia (June 28, 2015)........No. Our late 2014 Washington state 10% ethanol blend price collapse didn't occur till the summer was (almost?) over. The price gap between E0 & E10 widened in lockstep as E10 ethanol blends crashed(price gap, exceeding $1(?), at times). The price gap was strongest in December 2014, & into very early January 2015. Our neighboring state of Idaho had one of the lowest E10 price collapses nationally. I wanted to take a scenic trip to Idaho & flll with E10 (well below $1.50 per gallon). But I wouldn't cross the snow covered Cascade mountains & the generally snow covered eastern Washington higher plains in winter(tho west coast snow this past winter was the lowest amount for over 2/3rds of a century). Tho E10 has risen a lot since the December 2014, E0/E10 price gap still remained above 80 cents for like 87 octanes. Only this weekend, did E0/E10 price gap drop to 60 cents at my favorite low-priced E0 station, still much higher than in the past. EPA accesses penalties to oil companies, when they sell E0 & I think those penalties have increased. – litesongEverett, WA (June 29, 2015)
As to EPA penalties for selling E0 gas, its not quite that simple. Its all based around a convoluted cap & trade system that's built into the RFS. The fuel refiners and suppliers have to pay a certain amount per gallon as to not have to blend beyond the 10% ethanol blend. Any E0 sales takes away from the ethanol blend which in turn costs the refiners and suppliers more money which in turn they pass along to the consumer. Sam has referenced Dean Billings who has written the most concise explanation of the present day "blend wall" that the refiners are now up against. All gasoline sold today in the US is subject to this cap & trade system and is artificially priced higher than what the actual retail costs would be whether its an E10 blend or pure E0. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (June 29, 2015)
I like to comment about increasing E0 sources nationally & compare differing state level increases. My own Washington state seemed to have a mild increase from below 150 many years ago, to its present 225. However, my region north of Seattle, had some turmoil some years ago & actually LOST at least 5 to 10 E0 sources. Over the last few years, no E0 sources have been added in my direct region, & only one E0 source was added, somewhat outside my direct region. Hey, when do I get to see added E0 sources.....specially E0 in 87 octane?! – litesongEverett, WA (July 3, 2015)
In October 2013, NY had 246 E0 sources & in 14th place among the states. Presently, NY sources have more than doubled to 511 & I think in 5th place. – litesongEverett, WA (July 4, 2015)
Oh, oh.....NY is in 6th place......I think. – litesongEverett, WA (July 4, 2015)
on the news, warning on E15 gas. Car companies said it will void your warranty and AAA is warning https://www.youtube.com/embed/ceW9Nc1hVHU?feature=player_detailpage – kevct (July 6, 2015)
Anyone near the Costco in Henderson that can confirm 89/91 E0 fuel availability? This would be the only source of 91 octane E0 fuel in Nevada. – VicCarson City (July 6, 2015)
