That's interesting.
Our local WalMart sells non ethanol gas at the pump. Handy indeed

I can get it if I drive 35 miles in the wrong direction and pay about 20 cents more a gallon................ :?

Lots of boating areas down here so lots of places to buy non-ethanol gas. The Exxon station near our neighborhood sells it. I use it in my boat and all my gas power lawn equipment.

I watched the original video on it a weeks or so ago. Seemed like a LOT of work for very little result.

Using rough numbers. 10% ethanol fuel. In ten gallons that means one gallon ethanol. So for five gallons that's 2 quarts of ethanol. The guy added two quarts of water to his five gallons and shook it up to mix it well. Then he let it settle in a bottom drain jug. (gas floats on water) Then he drained about 3 quarts out. That means for all that work and risk with open gasoline being passed around he made his 10% ethanol 5%, maybe......

Just doesn't seem worth it to me.

It's 20¢ higher here at the station where it's the cheapest. I use it in everything. We're also fortunate to be able to get ethanol free 93 oct.

Tensaw, if that Exxon station is like the ones here, they say on the pumps that the ethanol free gas is not an Exxon product.

Gas mileage improves with non ethanol gas.

Nearly a dollar a gallon more in my area, but I still run it in all my small engines including my motorcycle(which I don't ride much :( ) Several station in my area sell it.

About 90 cents more a gallon here, and only one station in town that sells it. I use it in my '71 CB750 and, when my wallet can bear it, in my '79 F-150. Better mileage and better performance, for sure.

A few of the stations around me sell non oxy premium at + fifty or sixty cents over regular. I use this in all my small engines and outboards. Over near lake Michigan I've seen non oxy regular at the pumps.

You can buy it by the quart at Home Depot for about $6. If my math is right that’s $24 a gallon plus tax. For all the fuss about ethanol in gas, I don’t believe it’s caused any problems in any outboard or small engine I’ve had. I would buy it if it was available but it isn’t around me. Mixing water with gas to eliminate some ethanol seems like something I’ll leave to others.

BINGO! Ethanol free gas is about $.50 more per gallon, and readily available.

I wouldn't bother trying to remove ethanol either. I have two working Mercury outboards...a 1973 9.8hp and a 1982 40hp but haven't used either for some time.

Most of the guys on that site like the 1960s-and-earlier models.

I use E-10 in small engines and know how to fix carbs that have suffered from it. Sometimes I buy/use the canned 50:1 stuff in my trimmers. The engines seem to love it and the exhaust smells like race-gas emissions at a drag strip.

Not readily available here. E10 is mandated.
