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!

YES, They DO have premium 92 NON-ETHANAL Gas available. My previous statement was incorrect, and was intended for another gas. Also, they have just recently upgraded their pumps from the antique mechanical style to the digital readout pump displays. I use this station to fill up EVERY SINGLE TIME and have been very happy with the quality, when low I will risk running out before I fill up anywhere with Ethanol. – HunterHigh Point (August 27, 2014)
Here in berks county we have some ethanol free gas stations. My question is is ethanol free gas a top tier gas. If not, I probably would go to Exxon Or Shell. My service writer at the chevy dealer said to use top tier gas. I get 3 to 4 more mpg with ethanol free gas but I want the cleaning agents for my engine. – DennisBerks County, Pa. (August 28, 2014)
Dennis go to TopTierGas.com to find member stations, other approaches would be to go every other tank E0 or add Techron (eg) yourself. Mark in DC - I am not aware of any E0 close – TBillNorth Va. (August 28, 2014)
Dennis in Berks County, Pa, This issue of "Top Tier" gasoline has come up before. From the research I have done it became clear to me that "Top Tier" is nothing more than a marketing gimmick. All gasoline intended for automotive use must have, by federal mandate since the 90s, a certain amount of detergent added to its mix. These additives go by different names but essentially are and do the same thing, Techron being one of them. What makes a gasoline not "Top Tier" is when it becomes contaminated with foreign elements, often times water. This has happened numerous times both in large scale and small scale. Ethanol is the substance in gasoline today which attracts water and bonds to it creating a sludgy mess in the gas tank. either at the supplier, the delivery truck, the gas station tank, or your auto tank.

It may be possible to buy a non automotive additive gasoline from a marina or airport but I suspect most marinas are using automotive suppliers for their use. So if your gas is not coming from an auto gas station and you're in doubt then buy a bottle of Techron from an auto parts store and add it yourself. Otherwise disregard the phrase "Top Tier" and pay closer to the actual ethanol content whether it be E0 or E10 blend. Unless you have a "Flex Fuel" vehicle then avoid any ration above an E10 blend and if you can continue to buy E0 then your vehicle will be much better off. . – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (August 28, 2014)
THE NUMBERS DON"T LIE! I have just completed a cross country trip from Georgia to northern California and back.

First vehicle was a 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan designed for flex fuel, even E85. At the suggestion of Kevin, Dukester, and Litesong I decided to run only E0 gas as long as I could buy it and then convert to the California E10 blend when I had too. I just could not bring myself to purchasing an E85 product so did not even try. While running on E0 gas my average was 23 MPG. I ran the tank to nearly empty before converting over to Cali E10. Afterwards my average mileage dropped to 21 MPG. That's approximately a 9% drop in fuel economy when switching from E10 to E0.

The vehicle I drove back was a 2001 Volvo S60. While using Cali blend E10 the average fuel economy was 24 MPG. However after I switched to E0 my average gas mileage increased to 27.36 MPG. That's a 14% increase in fuel economy and is higher than the EPA rating for this vehicle.

As I said the numbers don't lie. Regardless of whether a car was built after 2008 or not doesn't seem to matter. E0 gas will in many if not most cases give you better gas mileage and possible performance. For the life of me I can not understand why this present administration continues to try and bounce this ball that has obviously lost all its air!

A post script suggestion, I carry a stack of Pure-Gas.org cards that Sam has provided the template for us to print from. Every station I go to I give them a card to show them how I found their station and where their customers come from. Also I inquire at the manned welcome centers and am always told that they have people asking about E0 gas availability so I give them a card. Believe me they are grateful. Thanks Sam for helping us turn back the ethanol tide. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (August 28, 2014)
they aren't really stations. Only one has it at the pump, its high octane leaded fuel for 10 bucks a gallon. its illegal to sell 87 octane ethanol free in the state. – kevct (August 28, 2014)
CORRECTION, I mis-spoke in my previous comment. I meant to say that I had a 9% drop in fuel economy when switching from E0 to Cali E10 blend. Sorry for the confusion. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (August 30, 2014)
Big increase in gas stations selling E0 fuel in the area. I with more would sell 93 for my car and bike. – Keith RidleyTampa (August 31, 2014)
Big increase in gas stations selling E0 fuel in the area....Keith Ridley, Tampa (August 31, 2014)..............Since the repeal of some E0 restricting laws in Florida, Florida E0 stations have leaped ~ 17+% since February, 2014!!!! – litesongEverett, WA (August 31, 2014)
overall number of e0 gas increase ( I remember October 2013 it was like 7500 or so)....Jonathan Lathbury, Atlanta, Georgia.........In 11(?) months, E0 stations in Canada & the U.S. have increased 12.5%. – litesongEverett, WA (August 31, 2014)
