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!

Love the Site. Could you get one of your tech wizards to develop an app that tells you where the nearest Pure Gas station is based on the phone GPS? Or the nearest 3 or 4 stations. That would be a real help for those of us that travel a lot. John – JohnMissoula MT (October 29, 2014)
The mobile apps do just that, John. They're linked on the home page and in the footer. iPhone and Android. Glad you like the site! – SamMadison, WI (October 30, 2014)
Over the last year, E0 sources on pure-gas.org have increased at a yearly rate of ~16%(now at 8676). Since 2 weeks ago, with E0 sources at 8612, E0 sources have increased by three quarters of a percent for a yearly rate of 18+%! A two week measuring period can't be considered accurate, but it would be good if the recent indicated rate of added E0 stations is rising in reality. My calculations are piecemeal (constructed from sporadic pieces of data). If someone had comprehensive historical data, it would be cool to see a long term line-graph of E0 sources plotted against a time line. – litesongEverett, WA (October 31, 2014)
South Dakota has just registered 100 sources of E0 fuel, a jump of almost 39% in ~13 months. Way to go South Dakota! This is special good news, since the "ethanol in gasoline" industry floated a rumor ~ a year ago, that places in the midwest(including S.Dakota) were going E0 dry. – litesongeEverett, WA (October 31, 2014)
I purchased E0 in Jacksonville today. E0 was 97 cents a gallon higher than ethanol laced gasoline. This is not my only experience with being gouged. – S.S. McDonald, McAlpin, FL (October 5, 2013).........Many posters here have noted the large price difference between 10% ethanol blends & E0 sources. Such posters often blame the gas stations. What IS going on is that the EPA & the "ethanol in gasoline" industry have forced so much ethanol into gasoline, that 100% gasoline(E0) is rare. Just the rarity of E0 causes the price to rise on E0. The best way to get the price down due to this rarity, is to encourage stations to supply lower priced 87 octane E0. 87 octane E0 availability will be the quickest way to encourage average drivers to use E0, so they will see the great advantage E0 has for drivers. With increasing 87 octane E0 availability, I would hope the artificial E0 cost due to rarity, would end if E0 station availability can get to 20,000+ stations. Yes, indeed! The double whammy of more lower priced 87 octane E0 AND the end of E0 rarity, would tremendously increase E0 use...... if the EPA can keep its regulatory fingers out of the E0 pie. – litesongEverett, WA (October 31, 2014)
Ummm, litesong - you mean to tell me you've never clicked the monthly updates chart link in the footer??!! – SamMadison (October 31, 2014)
Litesong, While in a normal capitalist market place where demand creates availability which ultimately helps determine price unfortunately the gasoline game is rigged by the meddling hands of the federal government though the arm of the EPA. We are presently in what is referred to as a "cap & trade" system where E0 gas is involved. Because of Renewable Identification Numbers or RINs gasoline refiners must pay into the system for every gallon of gasoline that does not contain ethanol. Five years ago these RINs were cheap The California CARB saw the writing on the wall and bought heavily into the RINs when they were cheap and then decided to drive the entire state to E10. Then as the blending wall hit last year the RINs became quite expensive just as demand for E0 gas was gaining steam. California has made big money by selling their RINs for grossly inflated costs to refiners in states that need to be able to sell E0 gas like Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, etc. So consequently when E0 gas should by all measures be on par or cheaper than E10 it is priced much higher because of the forced cap & trade system. It is a back door tax the federal government is becoming addicted to. Unfortunately it will continue to be like this until the RFS is completely overturned and scrapped. I fear that the only way to undo the hidden cap & trade RIN system will be for the federal government to raise gasoline taxes across the board. They want to do that now so our leverage point is to point out the uselessness of ethanol and get our elected officials to dump the RFS. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (October 31, 2014)
Another success story for E0 gas. I'm in the middle of a 2300 mile trip with a 2001 Dodge Caravan. The first tank was a blend of E0/E10 and the gas mileage came in at 17.5 MPG. The next tank of just E0 rose to 23.5. Then the next tank of E0 rose again to 26.2 and the last tank came in at 26.7 MPG. If I do the math correctly that's a 50.275% increase or a full 9+ MPG increase! Suffice to say I'm very pleased but also a little hard pressed to explain the severe increase in fuel economy from an E0/E10 blend to strictly E0 gas. Can someone help explain this? – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (October 31, 2014)
litesong - ........ you've never clicked the monthly updates chart link in the footer??!! – Sam, Madison (October 31, 2014).......... Oh, what a great set of bar graphs! Exceptional! Man, your little letters at the bottom should be bigger & at the top of the Home Page! Neat, neat, neat!!! – litesongEverett, WA (October 31, 2014)
Jonathan - several factors - change in elevation/temperature/driving slower/summer-winter blend/2lane-4lane/finally diluted virtually all of the E10 out. Think you can eliminate a buyer-friendly pump. I also seemed to get better mpg out west. Also west-2-east can be better than east-2-west, that's how the old Mobile economy runs were rigged, slightly downhill as you leave the mountains and enter the plains. – dukestermemphis (November 1, 2014)
