Only problem is, most aircraft STC's require a 91 octane minimum. 88 simply won't work and would be illegal to use in an aircraft that has FAA approval to use auto fuel. If you could get 91, even at a much higher price. Avgas is $5.65 in Elko right now. Which is actually a average price. I've seen it as low as $5.10 and as high as $6.00 elsewhere.

Jagdeep Atwal, June 15, 2013 0:20 CDT ... we sell ethanol-free gas......we had to lower our octane to 88, but we assure you 88 ethanol-free is better than 91 with ethanol:.......I believe you, at least that ethanol-free is better than 10% ethanol blends of the same octane. Here is an example: ethanol has an octane rating of 114. When added into gasoline to make 87 octane, 10% ethanol blend, the remaining gasoline molecules must average 84 octane. But 100% gasoline that is 87 octane, by definition, all the gasoline molecules must average 87 octane.

85, 87, and 88 are all ethanol free. We don't sell ethanol gas period.

I called and confirmed they still sell E0 gas. The previous post must have found the wrong station.

On November 20, 2013, I passed through Elko and stopped by this station for some ethanol-free gas. I found the station on Lamoille Hwy, BUT DID NOT FIND ANY ETHANOL-FREE gas at any of the pumps! Is it still available here???

This the Owner's son, we sell ethanol-free gas. To keep doing this we had to lower our octane to 88, but we assure you 88 ethanol-free is better than 91 with ethanol. We are the only has station in Elko, NV to sell ethanol-free gas and we are proud to do so. Thank you for your business.

I called and verified that they stock E0. They assured me that 100% pure gas is all they carry and all they will carry. They are easily accessed off 1-80 exit 301. Go into downtown Elko and turn on 5th street (NV Hwy 227) and follow that until you see the station. They are aproximately four miles from I-90. Their phonenumber is 775-753-7676. If I understood him correctly he purchased his own tanker truck so he can pick up his own fuel from the terminal. This station owner knows exactly what he is doing and why.
