Post suggestions and comments about below. I reserve the right to remove them at my discretion, especially if they have a clear political angle. Pure gas is a nonpartisan issue. I'm a Democratic Socialist, many users of this site are right-wing Republicans, even Tea Party, and yet we can all agree that ethanol policy is a mistake. It's not a liberal or conservative policy, it's the result of heavy lobbying by the ethanol industry, like ADM, combined with a massive blunder by the EPA in their attempt to spur the adoption of E85 vehicles back in 2007. We can all get along on this just fine.

Comments about specific stations are deleted – those should go in the station comments. If you find a station listing in error, update it or remove it. This page is for general comments about the site and pure gas, of interest to all visitors. Also, comments requesting that gas prices be added will be deleted. Read about this site or just think for a minute about how this site is updated. Prices would never be accurate on this site.

On this topic, I looked at the Google KML file requests in the site log, to see how often Google refreshes the big map data. It's kind of sporadic, but many times per day. Here's all the times Google refreshed the map data yesterday, Central Daylight Time (GMT-5). I'm concerned that some stations aren't showing up, including the Hot Spot on Sweeten Creek Rd in Asheville. Google has certainly downloaded those stations many times. I wonder if we're dealing with Google rejecting the KML updates but still showing the locations it already had. If anyone sees a _recently_ newly-posted (not updated) station on the big map, let me know.

I was recently told that the Citco stations no longer have ethanol free gas in NC, as of a few weeks ago. I use the pure gas APP on android and its the most stations listed. – rogernorth carolina (April 20, 2016)
Roger - if that's true, I'm sure they'll be removed as folks check in on them. It's a shame, if true. – SamSanta Fe, NM (April 20, 2016)
Roger - I can definitely vouch for that not being true of all Citgo stations in NC because I just added one in Hickory that I saw Friday afternoon. They took out their diesel for it. As far as I can tell, it's still up to the station owner to sell what they please. Rick Mozeleski a/k/a – MadFuelerWinston-Salem, NC (April 23, 2016)
Wisconsin & Florida E0 stations comprise 14.3% (~ one seventh) of total E0 sources in the U.S. & Canada. – litesongEverett, WA (April 27, 2016)
YAY, MadFueler! The new Citgo you added on 1940 12th Ave is on the big map! So we're OK, new listings are showing up on the big map. If a GPS-correct listing doesn't show up, there must be something wrong with the record (perhaps quotes or something, I dunno). YAY! – SamSanta Fe, NM (April 28, 2016)
The preceding post begs the question : What is tissue-gaplong? I am familiar with random number generators, did the poster use a random word generator to create the post? – dukestermemphis (April 29, 2016)
Heh, dukester. Link farming is a strange ... science? You have to invent words to get around site's/email's spam filters. All they're doing is putting up links that Google will follow when it indexes the page; not for human consumption. And the domains they use are typically pretty weird as well. In my experience, the site they're trying to promote sells counterfeit Ray-Ban sunglasses. That seems to be the "currency" in developing countries. – SamSanta Fe, NM (April 29, 2016)
I just finished working my way through the NC listings by adding phone numbers and checking on the availability of 93 octane E0. While its true 93 octane E0 has virtually disappeared along coastal NC & SC its still available at some stations in western NC. There are stations along the coastal region that have made an effort to continue selling premium E0 gas by selling 91 octane.

I suspect nationwide the oil & gas industry is simplifying the availability of E0 product and at some point in the future, if the RFS stays in place, the only consistent conventional products available will be 87 & 90/91 octane E0 gas. Anything else will become a strictly high priced boutique fuel.

For those of you who would like to do a little google sleuthing the states of Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin still need phone numbers filled in. A few minutes of your time would go a long way towards making this site as complete and accurate as possible. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (April 30, 2016)
