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!

Washington state just got 200 sources for 100% gasoline. Not too big a deal, but it is my state. So, I'm happy about that. – litesongEverett, WA (July 30, 2014)
A number of scare articles over the last year, tried to foist the idea that some states, like Louisiana & South Dakota would lose 100% gasoline stations. However, S.D. is nearing 100 stations offering pure gas. I also see that S.D. offers 85 octane. My car works well using 87 octane here in low land Washington state. I want to use 85 octane 100% gasoline sometime when I'm at higher altitudes than 3000 or 4000 feet. Is it the majority opinion here that 85 octane used at high altitudes should give excellent performance? Thanks for your answers. – litesongEverett, WA (July 30, 2014)
Have made many trips to Colorado from Memphis over the past 39+ years. Trucks have had no problem with 87 octane at home (300 feet above sea level), and experience no problem in Co, 3000-10,000 feet on 85. I do, as a precaution, fill up with 87 when returning to the lower altitudes as soon as possible, even buying higher octane while at higher elevations if I'm close to returning to lower elevations. – dukestermemphis (July 30, 2014)
Why are there so few ethanol-free stations in Texas?The nearest to me is 100 miles away,and I was told today that they will no longer handle ethanol free gas! – ClarenceColumbus,Tx. (July 31, 2014)
Clarence in Texas, Your question has baffled me ever since I've come across the Pure-Gas.org web site. But as a resident of Texas this is the question you should bring up with your governor, state rep, state senator, and state EPD. You need to remind these people of the harm that ethanol is doing to the farm equipment and marine equipment as well as other gasoline driven devices. Rick Perry seems to be a no-nonsense type of governor. Start with him. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (July 31, 2014)
Hey guys, like the iOS app but wonder can the map "travel" with me in real time while I'm going down the road? When in map mode, I clearly see myself blinking blue but when I reach the edge of the map, the blue cursor goes off the map and I have to swipe the screen to see where I am again until I again reach the edge of the map only to swipe again. Possible to fix this or do I not have something turned on within the settings of the app? – Trent BrownMadison, WI (August 1, 2014)
litesong, yes, 85 octane will work just as well at high elevations as 87 will at the lower elevations. 87 is the midgrade here until you get out to the eastern plains. It's tough to find E0 85 anymore, though. The higher elevation makes for less need for the higher octane. I run 87 just because that's what I can get, but I've run 85 when its available (even filled up on 85 for a trip to Lincoln and it performed just fine) and see the same performance. – JohnFort Collins, CO (August 1, 2014)
I'll be driving a 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan from Georgia to California that is rated as a "Flex Fuel-E85" vehicle. This is the first "flex fuel" vehicle I've driven let alone taken on any kind of long distance trip. My thinking is to continue as usual by running E0 gas as far as I can until converting to California blend E10. At that point perhaps run a tank or two of E85 for a fuel economy test.

Has anybody here had experience running E0 or E85 blend gas in a flex fuel vehicle? Knowing Chrysler products as I do its been my experience that they in general run better on E0 pure gas. But as I said this is the first time I've had a flex fuel vehicle to experiment with. Any input will be greatly appreciated. – Jonathan LathburyAtlanta, Georgia (August 1, 2014)
Jonathan, good luck on the trip. Definitely fill up with E0 for as long as you can, even if there is a spot close to the border of california. Do you have an extra gas tank or anything you can fill up to keep it going? – kevinct (August 1, 2014)
Its good to see the overall number of e0 gas increase ( I remember October 2013 it was like 7500 or so). But it seems the places we are adding stations already have access. its good were adding stations but I wish we found some in some of the E0 deserts – kevinct (August 1, 2014)
