Hate to bring up this subject again, but this is what's in my area for ethanol in the gas. None in the high test.

Most stations around here have none in the high test. Most do have it in the low and mid grade.

I only worry about ethanol in my small engines. Don't worry in my truck.

In Indiana, all gasoline MAY contain up to 10% ethanol without stating it on the pump.

If there is MORE than 10%, it must be stated on the pump.

No ethanol here yet,,,only run into that when we cross the border. I run premium gas in my trucks...they get better fuel mileage and run better so the added cost is offset.

I run all the small engines and tractors on non ethanol high test.  I still add seafoam as well.
