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.

Bad news. I called and checked, the few stations surrounding Las Vegas, the brand of 100 octane they sell definitely contains 10% ethanol. It is with great sadness that I will de-list these stations. Vic's original post was spot on. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (April 22, 2015)
An old comment, followed by an explanation//////////// Bobby, Panama City, Florida [September 12, 2010]...... I switched from 91 octane (with ethanol) to 89 octane without. After the 4th tank my mileage had gone fron 14 mpg average to 18 mpg average, with better acceleration./////////When high 114 octane ethanol is blended into 100% gasoline, the base gasoline molecules are NOT 91 octane, but sub-89 octane, so the whole fuel mess AVERAGES 91 octane. Even worse is "87 octane 10% ethanol blend". After blending in the 114 octane ethanol, the base gasoline molecules MUST average 84 octane. Yes, 87 octane gasoline engines HAVE to struggle to function on 114 octane ethanol AND 84 octane gasoline molecules. At best, tuned-for-E0 gasoline engines, when forced onto e87 octane ethanol blends, MUST collapse mpg by 8%, 7% & 5%. At worst many posters here, tell of engine running problems & even engine damages. – litesongEverett, WA (April 24, 2015)
From my post above, I calculated (yes, there is an equation to calculate gasoline molecule sub-octane in ethanol blends) that 87 octane 10% ethanol blends(E10) have their gasoline molecules average 84 octane to balance the 114 octane ethanol. So..... a while ago, EPA tried to force E15 into our national gasoline stocks. Again calculating, 87 octane 15% ethanol blends MUST have their gasoline molecules average....drum roll please.....MUST average, 82.24 octane. We all know ethanol doesn't function properly in gasoline engines. But the accompanying sub-octane gasoline molecules can't function properly either. – litesongEverett, WA (April 24, 2015)
New York broke the 400 mark! More to come too. And for all you wondering, 93 non ethanol is too difficult to get and too expensive to produce/store/ship etc at this point. If it becomes feasible, it will be considered. – MikeSaratoga Springs (April 24, 2015)
Interesting bit of news here in Texas. A House Bill (HB1693) has been introduced, and is "In Committee", to replace ethanol with methanol. I have requested information from the Representative that introduced this Bill because it may be substituting one problem for another.

Methanol was the oxygenate that used to be in gasoline. It was the M in MTBE and it, too, is an alcohol. The TBE was chemical additives that aided in staving off water absorption by the methanol. But, the MTBE package is banned by the EPA, here in the States, because of groundwater pollution. However, the psuedo-sanctimonius SOBs at the EPA don't seem to care if other countries pollute their water. MTBE is still produced here and recently there was a small spill in the Houston Ship Channel from a ship transporting it overseas. – Ron StubblefieldCypress, Tx. (April 24, 2015)
I called this QT listed on your list (Vivion Rd.) and they said all of there gas contains up to 10 percent ethanol.He even got onto There personal qt Ethernet and looked it up. I would not trust any qt locations in Missouri if your car or toy requires non ethanol gasoline. Usually the places that sell non ethanol gasoline in Missouri know about it and are proud of it. – GregKansas City MO (April 25, 2015)
Greg in Kansas City, I crossed referenced the QT corporate website with the Pure-Gas.org site and made the needed corrections. The station in question had the wrong address number and has been fixed. In fact QT has ten stations in the greater Kansas City area that sell E0 gas. The stations on the Missouri side sell 91 octane E0 and the stations on the Kansas side sell 87 octane E0.

QT has made a corporate commitment to add E0 gas availability in select markets like Kansas City, Tulsa, the Carolinas, and others when they build new stations. When I travel I purchase QT E0 whenever possible because they keep their prices fairly low. For those who wonder about "Top Tier" and E0, QT advertises their gas as "Top Tier" and they wouldn't sell E0 if it didn't meet their specs. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (April 25, 2015)
Interesting news; I recently read on the SEMA website that as of this year, four states are looking to do away with the requirement for ethanol blending. Pennsylvania, Hawaii, and Oregon are looking to eliminate the ethanol blending requirement for gasoline.

Maine is actually looking to outlaw ethanol blending if three other states enact such laws. Already Maine has this law on the books but only if ten other states actually outlaw ethanol blending. Personally I think they are taking the wrong approach. If they just eliminated the ethanol blending requirement the way other states have already done then they would quickly be able to open their state up to selling E0 gas.

Go to the SEMA website and it will give you contact info for the various state legislators if you live in one of these affected states. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (April 25, 2015)
Filled up in Greenville on Tuesday. The price of 91AKI "premium" unleaded at the Phillips 66/U-Haul: $2.799 (self) - which was the price quoted for 93AKI E-10 in my town, on Monday. (The price fell 10-12c overnight to $2.699 in Dallas)

Which means the price differential on gas blends, based on the presence of alcohol, has mostly equalised. :-)

BTW, TX HB1699 looks like the first attempt to BAN the blending of *any* alcohol with gasoline in the state. Specifically, it bans the blending of both Methanol AND Ethanol in motor fuels... – RickDallas, TX (April 25, 2015)
Correction to the above post by Rick in Dallas, Texas. It is Tx Hb 1693 that addresses the use of methanol in motor fuels and the labeling requirement. The bill is confusing because as you read through it there are many references to ethanol, all of which have been struck out leaving only the reference to methanol. There is a public hearing on April 29 for those of you in Texas who would like to put their two cents in. Otherwise this looks like a very watered down almost useless bill addressing our collective issues with ethanol. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (April 26, 2015)
