In my area Casey's has been offering E10 gasoline 87 and 89 octane for years. Well, in DeKalb, a new Casey's has gone up on the East Side which also offers E15 and straight gas. My mowers are going to be doing their happy dance.

I've been lucky enough to have always get 100% gas within 1/2 mile of where I live. Bad thing it is a country store and it ain't cheap. About 50 to 60 cents a gallon more but I use it in mowers. tractors and chainsaw. I bought a 80 volt weedeater and leaf blower last spring and so far both have done well.

I've been getting 'ethanol-free' gas for a couple years now. Small engines love the stuff.

In my neck of the woods, we have been able to get ethanol free premium gas for at least the last 10 years.  I used to have to drive to the next town to get it, but more stations are carrying it locally now. 

 

However, if the pump uses one hose for the different grades of gas, you do end up with the residual of the ethanol gas in the hose (and probably the pump) in your container before the ethanol free premium starts coming out.  Fwiw.

Here in Northern Michigan they call it Rec Gas. It is all I use in all of my small engines and in the three Allis Chalmers Farm Tractors we have. Costs more but doesn't affect the carbs as bad as the blended ethanol gas does. Had to change the fuel line three times in year on my chain saw before switching gas.

my old hit n misses run better in my opinion on diesel than that ethanol crap they have now. I had to start putting that special classic oil in all my antique cars now because that ethanol is so bad on em.

It depends on local tax rate or subsidies.  In Iowa and Nebraska the straight gas is $.10/gal more than the blended of the same octane rating.

I am fortunate to had straight gas for a while at a local gas station, but about a year or two ago a local chain of convenience stores started only offering 91 Premium gas as ethanol free at all its locations in addition to the 87, 89 e10 gas. They got rid of the 93 ethanol gas premium.

I really get a kick out of you guys and your ethanol gas antics.  All I have ever used since it came out is ethanol blend in everything.  I use a stabilizer 90% of the time and have bad no problem in any of the tractors, mowers, chain saws, line trimmers or starting brush fires ( In small amounts with diesel and old oil).    Keep laying it on as I am always ready for a good laugh.  :rolling:

If you fill a tank and let it sit for 6 months before you burn it out you are going to have problems - doesn't make much difference with or without corn added.

I use regular gas in every gas engine I own and have not any problems. Hi test is the only fuel that has no ethanol in it in my area, as far as I know. I put stabilizer in my gas cans, most times, when I fill them up. Should not have to use stabilizer either, if the gas was any good.
