Still selling E0 at premium price. 90 cents higher than E10 and 35 cents higher per gallon more than in March, despite the price of oil tanking since then. Save over 40 cents per gallon by filling up at Hasslers not too far away in Wolmsdorf.

Update the info

Hi Jonathan, I can verify that Pure Gas is available at the Pacific Pride. Matter of fact there are pumps dedicated to nothing but Pure Gas, meaning only Pure Gas flows thru these hoses.

This station sells E0 to the general public but also has a Pacific Pride facility in the rear. Not sure if E0 gas is available at the Pacific Pride card reader or not. Hopefully someone will verify this info.

Was there 1/5/14. E-0 still available at all pumps. about 45 cents higher per gallon than going price for the junk.

Keith, The E10 causes the fuel filter to clog more quickly in turn burning up the fuel pump. If you change the filter more often, you will prevent that problem.
Updated by Al, September 21, 2013 6:46 CDT
Got gas here last week and they still have E0. It is around 50 cents more per gallon than the corn juice.

Any chance of adding 93 octane non ethanol to your menu?!?

Hi Folks, My Citgo contract has expired and now I'm branded AmeriGreen. Will still have both 87 & 89 octane Pure Gas! Also the AmeriGreen Program now has a 3 cent discount at the pump. Every gallon, every day, no limit, no card needed and it's 100% American Fuel. Gotta love America. Thanks for your continued support. Charlie

I got no e gas the 18th oct. 89 was 419.9 and my truck runs so much better.You have to go to the pumps at the east end to get no e and the grades are marked ethanol of no ethanol.

Just phoned this station, they confirmed 87 & 89 octane ethanol free gasoline

While on vacation I visited this station, Thank you Charlie for continuing E0, it was a nice increase in MPG. he still has 87 and 89 and the pumps and signs are clearly marked. Nice Clean station.

Al, I have been to about half of the stations listed in Pa. I make it into your fine state often. Whenever I go anywhere, I check out this site for any stations I can use. I try to use as many as I can to make it worth their effort to keep stocking the E0. When this all started, I asked several station owners about stocking E0. Apparently, they get alot of pressure to sell the E10. So I try to help make it worth their efforts. Thanks for helping out on your end. I certainly understand when it becomes cost prohibitive. Take care.
Updated by Al, April 01, 2012 8:34 CDT
Thanks for the update Keith. Sounds like you really want to get E0 gas and have had a lot of problems in the past. Do you visit any of the other E0 stations in Lancaster County?
Updated by Keith, March 31, 2012 18:16 CDT
To Al: just wanted to let you know that my consistent experience is 10% better fuel mileage using E0. So the roughly 10% higher price you cited makes it a wash. I live in Maryland and monthly travel either seventy miles into Pa. or West Virginia to haul back one hundred or so gallons of E0. Before I went to this trouble, I had to replace five(5) in tank fuel pumps due to corrosion. Funny, in the same type work vehicles, I had never had a failure before everyone in our area went to E10. I also had to replace the entire carb. on my snow blower. The corrosion caused irrepairable damage to the aluminum. I fortunately figured out what was happening before destroying the carbs. on my motorcycle. You do what's best for you, but I'd love to have a local station selling E0 at all, let alone only 10% more than the E10 garbage. Good Luck.

I wanted to fill up with E0 this evening for my car and lawn equipment, but E0 was $4.17 and E10 was $3.75. 42 cent difference per gallon is a lot and just is not worth it in my opinion. It started out at 20 cents higher, jumped up to 30 higher, now at 40+ cents more per gallon I feel like I am being gouged. No longer a customer. I realize it costs more to make that E10, but there are local places that do not charge so much more, which is odd. I was under the impression that the CBOB gas came from one supplier, so I am not sure why it costs so much more here. Maybe someone can clue me in on what is going on?
Updated by Ken, December 07, 2011 10:28 CST
Charlie, I live near State College, PA. I just left a message for you at your station to contact me about your source for the CBOB Pure Gas. I'm interested in possibly trying to sell it here. Thank You. Ken

Fueled up this past SUNDAY with pure 89 octane gas. They also had pure 87.
Updated by Charlie, October 03, 2011 21:19 CDT
Only Biodiesel available at Charlies.
Updated by Ken, September 30, 2011 19:32 CDT
Question: Do you sell pure petro-diesel by any chance?? i.e. No Biodiesel??
Updated by Mike, September 25, 2011 19:39 CDT
Great to see Charlie have the cheapest gas in the state.
Updated by Charlie, August 05, 2011 9:48 CDT
Since Charlies Fuel & Deli always had Pure Gas, I should add that my 2 mpg increase was comparing the old Pure Gas to the new CBOB Pure Gas. Another side note is the highest octane available will be 91 octane. So be careful of signs saying 93 octane, cause it ain't true. Thanks for your business!
Updated by Charlie, August 05, 2011 9:30 CDT
The reason for the Pure Gas becoming more available is the rules have changed. All gasoline is shipped up the pipeline without any ethanol, then ethanol is added at the time the tanker truck is loaded. The rules were this new blend of gasoline, called CBOB, which started coming up the pipeline in April, had to be mixed with ethanol to be legal to sell. The Buckeye Petroleum Company lobbied to get the rules changed to be able to sell this CBOB without adding Ethanol. They were successful and CBOB can be sold without ethanol. This means we have an uninterrupted supply coming up the pipeline for a long time. My opinion is this new blend is also a much better quality product. My own gas mileage immediately increased by 2 mpg. So it's a win, win for all who use Pure Gas!!
Updated by Charlie, July 02, 2011 7:30 CDT
Thanks Rick, but you mean $3.77 a gallon! Also updated the selections at Charlies. Now have both 87 & 89 octane available in Pure Gas. The 89 octane Pure Gas is 10 cents more than the 87 octane.

Just paid $4.29 / Gallon, which is about 60 cents more per gallon than the cheapest available in the area. I still need to burn Pure Gas in my 2000 Honda Insight, which bucks if Pure Gas is not used.
Updated by Mike, May 07, 2011 9:54 CDT
Great, thanks Charlie. Only a few left in the state for E0.
Updated by Charlie, April 25, 2011 20:04 CDT
Pure Gas should continue uninterupted for a least another year or two, but it comes at a steep price. The long distance to travel makes frieght a killer. Right now it's about 36 cents more than E-10. Yes, customers do know the difference and travel far to buy it. Right now sales are about 50% Pure Gas vs 50% E-10. Also been filling alot of 5 gallon cans for lawn mowers!
Updated by Mike, April 24, 2011 16:33 CDT
Thanks Charlie. Great to know. The PA list was just cut in half due to a supplier stopping the production of E0, great to know that you can still get it. Any idea on how much longer you can keep E0? What is the price difference between E0 and E10? Do you find your customers want or understand E0 or they dont care?
Updated by Charlie, April 24, 2011 11:53 CDT
At Charlies you have a choice, Pure Gas (E0) or E-10, both are 87 octane. So, Pure Gas 87 octane will continue to be available at Charlies.
Updated by Mike, April 22, 2011 21:22 CDT
I imagine this station had the same supplier as other E0 stations in the area and they can no longer get it. Is it still E0?
Updated by Charlie, April 05, 2011 21:19 CDT
Thanks to everyone who shops at Charlies! You can be 100% sure that the Pure Gas at Charlies has no ethanol. It's perfectly legal to sell Pure Gas, just very hard to find a terminal that still handles it. You can rest assured that I'm doing everthing possible to continue the flow of Pure Gas. I've been successful finding a new, but far away source for product. Pure Gas will continue at Charlies for a long time! Thanks Again Charlie Owner

Has anyone tested this "ethanol-free" 87 to be certain? Many stations are putting E-5 in and marking it as "ethanol-free". Even though we all know that is illegal
Updated by acm_acm, December 07, 2010 10:27 CST
PA changed the law so that "retailers" must sell only E-10 and above, BUT I've heard that since Charlie's has the "club" pumps, they're exempt. In any case, they sell ethanol-free 87 octane which is better than nothing.
Updated by Bob, November 14, 2010 19:17 CST
The pumps have options, the ethanol-free 87 is a clearly marked button on all pumps. I just bought ethanol-free gas there yesterday
Updated by Taz Radio, October 02, 2010 4:59 CDT
I got gas there on 9/18/2010, the 89 was still Ethanol Free, but when I went there on 10/01/2010 the 89 now has Ethanol in.
Updated by bubba, July 24, 2010 16:54 CDT
89 also
Updated by acm_acm, June 01, 2010 10:57 CDT
They sell BOTH E10 and Ethanol Free with the prices clearly posted on the main sign, so you have the choice and know the price difference.
