I spoke with the station manager today and they told me none of their gas is Top Tier, even their premium. Just thought everyone would want to know.

Very nice place and pumps clearly marked that 87,89 have ethenal and 91 doe not. Price for 91 premium gas was 369.9 on sept 22, 2013 witch is good for ethenal free premium gas.

About late April 2013, I happened to see the MO Weights & Measures truck and tech parked next to the fill holes in the gas station parking lot. He was testing various things about the fuel. I walked up and asked him specifically about the alcohol content of the 91 octane fuel that is labeled as alcohol free. He was just about to do that test and said I could watch him. He was very nice and explained just how exactly it was done and showed me how I could do the test very easily at home it I wanted to do so. The premium fuel was, as labeled, alcohol free!.... I mentioned that fact that since the fuel in the hose was most likely to be regular and laced with alcohol, and that goes in our tank even when we are paying for premium, he laughed and said "yes" that's right, and theres not much we can do to help ya there." So, for those of us filling our cars and trucks - that amount of alcoholic fuel in the hose may not be of much concern when we are purchasing 10-20 gallons of high-test, but for motorcyclists, you may want to think about it when "topping" off. Probably better to run that little tank down to near empty before filling up - 'cause it's likely your gonna get a quart or more of alca-gas before the premium starts gets to the filler spout..... Just a thought.

I checked with management of the station last week 1/11/13 to determine that the premium was indeed a non-alcohol blend. They assured me that is was. I have had literally thousands of dollars damage to a European car manufactured in 2003. Fuel system damage verified by several independent sources to be from alcohol in the fuel. I pleaded with them to continue providing non-alcohol blends. This is the only place I buy premium grade fuel now.

I just started Goggling this subject and we are lucky to have this ethanol free gas here. I will not buy anything else but this for any gas powered car, truck, motorcycle, mower, edger, well you get the idea. I was in Houston and it appears to be next to impossible to get there. Glad I'm no longer there! Many car and truck engines are having fuel injection and carburator issues because this stuff (ethanol) is bad on rubber components. Just do a goggle search and you don't need to read much to see what is happening, really not needed in our gas.

This is a new gas station. Phone number (816) 220-1971. The store just moved to the west end of this strip mall this summer and have just built the new station in front of the store just east of the Arby's on the Northeast corner of the route 7 hwy 40 intersection. I just paid $3.45 for 91 octane and will always fill up here now and am so glad they have this hi-grade ethanol free gas here now! THANK YOU HYVEE!!! You will get more mpg from this gas than the ethnol gas. Not sure how much of a difference but it is all I am going to buy now that they are at this location!
