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 and they will never be added to the database. Ever.

I was always under the impression that LEAD was added as a lubricant and that it also affected the fuel burn by retarding it. My question is will E0 need a supplementary lubricant added? I'm sure you can straighten out any misconceptions that I have. Thank you for your site. – WayneSt. Louis, MO (January 7, 2017)
I understand that Canadian Tire 91 and Ultramar 91 are both ethanol free in Ontario. Does the same apply to Esso 91? – Douglas OgleBrighton, Ontario (January 7, 2017)
Why is there only 2 stations in the entire state of New Jersey? Must be a law against it or something? – Ren (January 10, 2017)
I think that's two more than there should be, Ren. New Jersey is completely covered by the Clean Air Act zone spanning NYC to Philly. Clean Air Act zones must sell only E10. So all large metro areas are meant to be strictly E10. You can see that on the large map. – SamSanta Fe, NM (January 10, 2017)
Any chance on getting the app updated, so it doesn't blow up each time you run map mode on your android. – toddTX (January 10, 2017)
Ren in New Jersey, To expand a little on Sam's comment, he is absolutely right that the EPA has mandated this region as one of their clean air zones. However the restrictions may change because all refiners now are required to sell lower sulfur gasoline across the country as per new EPA regulations taking effect in 2017. This is the reason gas prices have gone up .10 to .20 per gallon at the beginning of the year.

Ethanol was seen as an oxygenate to lower emissions. But it has since been found that by lowering the sulfur content in gasoline emissions would lower even further and that there is no need for ethanol. REC 90 octane E0 was already in production as a low sulfur fuel and on cars that had trouble passing emissions with E10 gas it was found that they would pass emissions with REC 90 E0 gas.

The two stations in New Jersey, one of which I have vetted, have gone to great lengths to stock E0 gas for specialty uses like lawn garden equipment, classic cars, motorcycles, generators, etc. The price per gallon is higher and would be cost prohibitive for most people to use on a regular basis in their daily driver vehicle. Kudos to these two stations for making the effort to serve folks in New Jersey with their specialty equipment needs! – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (January 10, 2017)
Wayne in St Louis, While it is true that lead was used as a lubricant for most vehicles built in the early 70s and back, since then auto manufacturers have eliminated the need for lead by installing hardened valve seats in the heads. So unless you have a vehicle that is 40+ years old with original engine equipment then the need for a lubricant substitute isn't necessary. It wont hurt anything though if you use one.

Ethanol is not a lubricant but rather a corrosive which is hard on the fuel systems so the use of E0 gas is almost always preferable. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (January 10, 2017)
Is there a reason why there are no locations in Delaware? Lots of boat owners in Delaware are looking for ethanol free gas but not a single station in the entire state! - Sure would be a good opportunity for some business owner to provide the service in Sussex county. – JohnRehoboth Beach, De (January 14, 2017)
I am not able to update a station while using Firefox browser. I have to use Chrome browser to update stations. Firefox does not allow/recognize the Captcha. It keeps telling me that the info is not supplied. Just passing on the information in case it's not known. – Del HosnerAmarillo, Texas (January 14, 2017)

There are probably several reasons, the lack of E0 availability in surrounding states not the least of them. In other words, there are no available sources. Imagine the largest oil producing state in the country (Texas) having the same problem as Delaware! Our saving grace is the ready availability of E0 in surrounding states. They are the sources for Texas' supply of E0. And, we pay in the neighborhood of a dollar more for E0, compared to ethanol blends, because of the added delivery charges.

Convince your indepedent gasoline station owners that the citizens of Delaware are a willing market for E0 that will pay the additional costs of delivery. If there is a profit to be made, there is an entrepreneur that will meet the demand. – Ron StubblefieldCypress, Tx. (January 19, 2017)
