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!

it causes a greater loss than 3%.– John, Fort Collins, CO (October 14, 2014)-------Tho your explanation is more complicated, many (myself included) have told how ethanol needs hi-compression ratio(16:1) ethanol engines to extract its energy & efficiency. Used in low compression ratio(9:1 to12:1) gasoline engines, ethanol can't burn properly, losing far more than 3%. I have years of mpg records for my 3 cars for both 10% ethanol blends & E0(ethanol-free). E0 provides 8%, 7% & 5% better mpg than 10% ethanol blends. My present 2013 car is gaining 8% to 9% better mpg than 10% ethanol blends. Propagandists for the "ethanol in gasoline" industry, bluntly say these explanations are untrue. Propagandists love telling lies. – litesongeEverett, WA (October 14, 2014)
Can E0 and E10 be mixed in the same tank? I have done it once or twice when on a trip and had no damage, but have heard urban myths that when mixed they will damage your engine or turn to white gel in 3-5 days. Thanks. – DaveHarrisburg, PA (October 16, 2014)
Dave in Harrisburg, What you heard about mixing E10 and E0 is complete BS and definitely an urban myth. Of course the more you're able to run E0 gas in your vehicle the better off it is for performance, maintenance, and fuel economy. However when traveling it may not be possible or practical to always purchase E0 which is when you may have to run E10. Depending on how much E0 is in the tank you'll be effectively diluting the E10. So lets say you have a 20 gallon tank and you had to add 10 gallons of E10 then the gas in the tank would become E5. From my experience E5 or less is an acceptable blend for many vehicles. There is nothing wrong with doing your own blending of E10 and E0.

What you must be very careful of is not to run E15 or E85 in a vehicle that was not designed for those higher ethanol blends. However if by some chance that has happened then make sure your next tank by around the half tank mark should be E0 in order to dilute the higher blend.

The issue of the "white gel" is what happens when E10 or higher blends adsorb water in your gas tank. This can happen in high humidity environments and boats are especially susceptible to this problem. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (October 16, 2014)
heads up for the missouri crowd. i visited several stations listed here, took samples, and verified E0 status. deleted 4 so far. hard ones to stomach are the hyvee's which had decals on their premium/ highest octane for E0. no longer. in fact i'm triple checking my tests but it would appear of the 2 stores i visited (columbia and st. joe) they are now with ethanol- and explains the decals removed. i did visit the QT at oak grove. pretty slick setup, separate hose 91E0. it was pricey, ~$.80 more than the cheap stuff. but good stuff. please folks, help keep the stations listed here accurate, invest in the quik-check testing solution and share your results here. if a station needs removal, do it! – pbSTL (October 16, 2014)
PB in St Louis, Excellent advice. I am saddened to hear about the loss of some of the HyVee stations. They were a beacon to me whenever I traveled through the mid-west. I hope this is only a spot situation and not system wide.

I am a little confused. The stations you came across, were both 87 and 91 octane converted to E10 or did these HyVee stations still maintain one grade of E0? Thanks for your updating efforts. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (October 17, 2014)
Tennessee just went past 500 sources for E0! Glad to see the leaping numbers (now 8612) of E0 sources in the U.S. & Canada. However, it appears the greatest leaps in sources are in states already with good numbers of sources. Was hoping the increased E0 sources in CA & AZ a couple months ago, would mean more stations would start up in the future, in those weak states..... but no more E0 sources have appeared. As I've pointed out several times, some states with numerous E0 sources are STILL very weak in 87 octane E0 sources. As mentioned before, when I travel to other states, I want to try E0 in 85 octane from cities at high altitude(Idaho, AZ, Montana, Colorado, S.Dakota, others). – litesongEverett, WA (October 17, 2014)
Oh, as I've mentioned previously, it'll be cool when pure-gas.org lists 10,000+ sources of E0, probably before 2016. If the EPA continues to butt out, location increases for E0 sources should begin decreasing the excess pricing for E0. The ethanol industry & EPA drove E0 to rarity, which automatically drove up the price of E0. I would hope decreasing E0 prices(compared to ethanol blends) should occur by 20,000 E0 sources. It is incredible that Oklahoma (as well as individual stations in other states) already has low prices for E0. – litesongEverett, WA (October 17, 2014)
It would be nice if the search feature could have a check box "pump", "bottled" or "both". The list is cluttered with places selling puregas in 1L to 5gallons cans at $20 a gallon or so, making it hard to find the places that sell if from a conventional pump at prices less than double E10 prices. – Simon DogBoston, MA (October 19, 2014)
the gas station at 1500 sigman road in conyers ga - has not been built yet - it is an empty lot – steve macke (October 22, 2014)
Steve Macke in Conyers, Ga, This is a case where google maps is wrong which happens from time to time throughout the listings. The GPS coordinates though are correct. I made a slight address adjustment to the listing which should work. This particular station has been there for many years because I've been buying gas there for over nine years. They started selling REC 90 octane E0 at the pump several months ago. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (October 22, 2014)
