Post suggestions and comments about pure-gas.org 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 left-wing Democrat, 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.

Comments about specific stations are deleted – those should go in the station comments. This page is for general comments about the site and pure gas, of interest to all visitors. For example, if a station no longer serves pure gas, just remove it. If you know of one that's not listed, don't comment here - add it! Also, comments requesting that gas prices be added will be deleted. Read the About page  or just think for a minute about how this site is updated.

Jamie in Winter Park, Fl, To piggy back on what John commented on, there is no guarantee that E10 labeled gasoline actually contains 10% ethanol. The suppliers and terminals are not required to wait on a fresh supply of ethanol to blend into their fuel in order for them to deliver gasoline out to the retailers. Consequently the same is true for E85. I have seen article after article stating that E85 was 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline. The fact is E85 ranges from 51% to 83% ethanol. So fuel economy can potentially be all over the place when using E85 in "flex fuel" vehicles. It all has to do with ethanol supply availability at the time gasoline is loaded and ready to ship. Anecdotally I have heard stories of unscrupulous suppliers that blended more than 10% ethanol into their E10 gasoline deliveries.

When in doubt its best to test your fuel content with one of Gail's Fuel Tester kits.

As for E0 supply in Florida, its been my experience that the Racetrac/Raceway stations do the best job holding the line on price for E0 gas. WAWA and Gate stations tend to be a bit higher but consistent on pricing. Most of the other stations are independents and consequently their E0 prices can be considerably higher than E10 pricing.

I filled up with usual 87oct with standard E10..... To my surprise, I got some of the best MPG I've had in LONG time.... – Jaime, Winter Park, Fl (March 25, 2015)......I've also noted that occasionally, tho overall mpg in my 4 cars, show an 8%, 8%, 7%, & 5% gain, E0 over E10. Fuel-testers often mentioned E10 is sometimes E20, due to double blending mistakes & ethanol blenders have been taken to court for ethanol blends exceeding 60%! Its very likely, some E10, as well as being over-blended, is under-blended(E5) or even not ethanol blended at all! In other words, do not make bets that E10 is E10. But bet that long term E0/E10 mpg ratio will be greater than 1.03 in favor of E0..... hence, 1.08, 1.08, 1.07 & 1.05. – litesongEverett, WA (March 25, 2015)
Just bought E-Zero 89 for the first time.....the response and power at low throttle were improved.... my gas mileage.... gone up a little bit....my engine seems like it is running very smooth and quiet – Ron, Butler,PA (March 24, 2015).....Drivers have got to stop being surprised that 100% ethanol-free gasoline(E0) is better than E10, as used in gasoline engines. Gasoline engine engineers designed & built low octane low compression ratio gasoline engines to burn E0 efficiently. Ethanol engine engineers designed & built high 114 octane high compression ratio(16:1) ethanol engines to burn 100% ethanol engines efficiently. Ethanol, as used(not burned efficiently) in gasoline engines.... fails. Only "ethanol in gasoline industry" & EPA propaganda says ethanol gives as much btu energy in a gasoline engine as in ethanol engines. You would NOT use 114 octane E0(does such a fluid exist?) in your 87 octane low compression ratio gasoline engine. You should not use ethanol in your 87 octane low compression ratio gasoline engine(diluted to 10% or not). – litesongEverett, WA (March 25, 2015)
Jaime - one possible explanation is the tank you bought in Orlando was fresh summer blend, and the tank in Miami was winter blend. Might account for some of the difference in mpg. – dukestermemphis (March 27, 2015)

My explanation & that of John from .....the tank you bought in Orlando was fresh summer blend, and the tank in Miami was winter blend. Might account for some of the difference in mpg. – dukester, memphis (March 27, 2015)....... But only a part. My explanation & that of John from Fort Collins is probably a more correct explanation. Dabbling about small ethanol differences in summer & winter ethanol blends, does not explain the wide mpg differences between true 10% ethanol blends & 100% totally ethanol-free gasoline(E0). – litesongEverett, WA (March 27, 2015)
FYI, I just got my stickers from Cafe Press today -- they're excellent! Really nice printing and very nice vinyl material. I've uploaded a photo to the stickers page. – SamMadison, WI (March 27, 2015)
Select Stewart’s Shops locations are now offering Ethanol-Free Premium Gasoline.

Our customers have been asking for it, and we listened! Ethanol-Free Premium Gasoline can improve mileage, provide better performance and safer operation for classic cars and recreational vehicles, such as snowmobiles, boats, and motorcycles, as well as lawn and snow equipment. Ethanol-free gasoline is also more stable for long term storage, and less destructive to engines and fuel systems. – Ronald HofakerNew York (March 29, 2015)

New York state is dramatically increasing its sources of higher octane E0 gasolines. New York state must also offer low 87 octane E0(in very short supply), so that the majority of common gasoline vehicles needing 87 octane E0, can also have low octane E0..... & at a lower price. – litesongEverett, WA (March 29, 2015)
I'm having trouble updating a station in Greenville Tx.
