Finding NON-Ethanol gas
« on: August 12, 2011, 04:16:50 AM »

Don't like running alky gas in my old cars, and it is a definite no-no
in boats, especially in 2 stroke outboards... I've found that in areas
with boats non-ethanol gas tends to be available, my station in VT
sells it, Premium only, and I use exclusively in my boats... I'm going
to bring home some 6 gallon tanks of it for the cars, because I can't
find it around here at home.   So if looking for good gas for your
Mopars, it might pay to look around in areas with boats and Marinas,
near the shore etc. Just a tip.

I run Premium in the sled/boat and anything with a 2-stroke as the ethanol tends to wash away the oils from the cyl. walls and bearings where a 2-stroke needs them the most. I use synthetics also for oils. It is easy to find up here (premium) in Canada,but we sure pay for it!

Up here in Canada,Shell sells V-Power 91 octane that contains NO ethanol.
All others contain 5 to 10% ehtanol--even the highy regarded Sunoco Ultra 94 (93 in the US)
 
My old Waygun likes the V power the best--- no ping and no flat spots.
Ethanol is harsh on accelerator pumps.
Our old cars were not designed to run on today's Corn Whiskey swill.

It seems like most premiums around here contain 10% ethanol, so gas
with no ethanol at all is very hard to find... there's a list on the
Internet someplace of stations in the US that sell it, but nothing
within several hours of here, though I don't think that list includes
racing gas, which I assume has no ethanol?

Move to California.  I have seen just one station that is offering E-85 and that was in Sac Town.  It is no problem here... yet.

I beleive VP sells racing fuel that contains no Ethanol.
Then again,very expensive alternative.

BTW,their VP100 street legal fuel DOES contain Ethanol.
