10 years?

Color me skeptical...whatever color that is...

Maybe if it is gas without one atom of demonic corn whiz in it...

Is there a way do de-cornify gas?   ::whatgives::

I don't see that even as an option, everything even premium will have a trace.   ::outrage::

I can buy it here without ethanol no mention of trace on pumps and I believe it has to be disclosed.

Yup!

I'll confirm my next fill up...

IIRC few stations in my area tout "ethanol free" pumps...I had a list once...might need to chase that source down and find out what few remain...

The only place I've seen it is around Marinas.

They sell it several places around here. The farmers like it in their equipment. The place I get it is actually near the lake, but it's also right in the middle of pasture land.

Here; try this one.  It's set for NC, but you can change that.

I've used it to find E-Free gas for our small engine tools and machines.

I run it in my boat all the time. But for my car, I did some mpg test and saw no difference. No doubt it is better for the lines and such, but I wonder sometimes about the price difference in just changing out my fuel lines in all my small motors every few years.
So far, that's the only issue I see.

We find the problem with the chain saws, mostly.  We don't use them often, but when we need 'em, they need to work NOW and there's no time to be changing out fuel lines.

Oh, and we've got this giant leaf blower on wheels -- that thing hates ethanol.

I've been using the Stihl pre mix no sh*t. Pricey but for the times I use the saws it's worth it. Hey Kermit the Whitehouse Gen Store has it.

That's a lil' out of my jurisdiction. Don't make it down that way much. There are 2 places about 10 min. from my place. One on 122 at Burnt Chimney, the other over near BayRock.
I've thought about that pre mix. But I use Sta-Bil for everything in my building. Only trouble I have had was a lawnmower and a weed eater. My saws always work as well as my blower.
The mower starts every time on the 2nd pull, even after 2 years sitting. The line might have been bad from the factory.
I swear on Sta-Bil. They also now make one for marine applications. Supposed to handle water better.  ::whatgives:: Prolly' the same stuff.

I have go-to places for non-ethanol for my boat - a couple right here in town, and a couple more on the way to lakes I like to frequent. My old 1988 Yamaha 200HP doesn't like corn-juice.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

The red Sta-Bil tends to separate over time.  The blue has lasted as long as my gas, so far.  I have 90 + Sta-Bil blue in my Stihl MS250 for two years now and it "stihl" fires right up.  Blue is what I have used in boats for years.

 Nothing starts like Stihl nothing. I just bought a MS-311 a couple of months ago.

Excellent, thanks!  Yes, the unbranded Bill's Superette's in my area rings a bell!  And the Log Cabin in Danbury, Holiday in Siren and Conner's in Webster near the lake I like, especially the latter as it is higher octane premium, it is all I run in the boats, the Deere, push-mowers, blower, chainsaw etc!

 ::thumbsup::

Ethanol is evil!  And I am surprised the eco-turds don't go apesh*t over all the precious aquifer water it wastes...something like 100g to 1g of ethanol produced!  Not that I particularly care...just like rubbing their noses in it!  They are slaves of Archer-Daniels-Midland! Bwuhahaaa!

An uncle, who was a sawyer, used nothing but Homelite until Stihl came to the U.S., then it was nothing but Stihl from then on.
