Where to find ethanol free gas

Going the Extra Mile for Ethanol-Free Gas

Posted September 9, 2013 by 8 Comments

How far will you go to find Ethanol-Free gas? 5, 10, 20 miles, or all the way to Alaska?

The hunt is on! Maybe a gas station supplying ethanol-free fuel is right around the corner.

Find the closest one near you!

Pure-Gas.org has over 7,000 locations listed identifying gas stations that sell pure, ethanol-free fuel (U.S. and Canada). If you’re willing to pay more for pure gas that will save your power equipment and boats from the effects of ethanol, the next step is to find out if a station close to you actually sells it.

Below you’ll see an image of the map Pure-Gas.org has created showing all the stations that have been identified by viewers like you. Click the map to find an Ethanol-Free Gas Pump in your area.

According to Pure-gas.org, most fuel sold in Alaska does not contain ethanol. But not many people will head north to trade in their riding mower for a snowmobile, just to avoid using ethanol gas.

Here’s some more advice on finding ethanol-free gas:

  • Access to ethanol-free gas relies on the availability from the refineries and distributors throughout the country. They should be able to tell you where to find a station.
  • Some states do not require a “10% Ethanol” label to be placed on their pumps.
  • Hardware and power equipment stores often carry pre-mixed ethanol-free gas in quarts for 2-cycle handheld equipment.
  • If you want to get scientific, there are fuel test kits that can determine if your gas contains ethanol (alcohol).

    Good day. I live in southern Connecticut (Greenwich, CT 06830) and it appears that there is not one ethanol free gas station with in 100 miles radius of me…do you know why?

    If I am incorrect please let me know a station that is closest to me.

    Go to your nearest airport for the purest gas-no ethanol, no winter or summer additives, just 100 octane with forever shelf life. Cost of aviation gas was $6.21 last time I filled my gas cans; not really a lot of money when you remember you are not filling your car, but a couple of lawn mowers.

    We travel to a small airport 35 miles away and buy aviation fuel at $6 dollars a gallon. We use this to power our chainsaw, weedwackers, ditch pump etc. I have to use enthanol fuel in in my high consumption motors. ( my 90 hp Yamaha jet outboard will burn 9 gallons an hour).

    What a find! Ethanol-free gas just around the corner, and I discovered this through you. Thanks for thinking of providing it as well as all the other useful information and DIYs I have found on this blog. You could say I’m a LOL who likes to tinker and mow my own lawn. That’s “Little Old Lady”, not “Lots of Laughs”!
