While I was around the Dover, Pa. area for the Gt show, I found this being used as a gas station Ad. at the station. This guy pays a fine for every tanker of gas he buys without Ethanol in it's blend.

That's funny! I've started buying high octane for my power equipment. No ethanol in that up here but the 2 lower grades can be up to 10% which is a lot IMO. The new pumps that are coming into service are clearly labelled. Old ones don't say anything about ethanol.

Interesting that the station owner has to pay a "fine"--Do you know how much it was? I know President "O" passed a mandantory
ethanol -content law, but I don't know if / when it goes into effect.

When I was on Motorcycle, I stumbled into a non-ethanol gas pump in south central WV. But now I can't recall where. I just needed gas real bad and saw the pumps at this home heating fuel place. He said that motorcycle guys would come from far n wide with their gas caddy's.
Though it's too far from home for me to do the same. If I could recall the place, guys in the area may be able to take advantage of it.

Dean, This station was just south of the show grounds on your way back to Dover.

Dean, thank you for that link. I was able to look at several places in Upstate NY that I was unaware of. Thank you.
