Finding Ethanol-free Gas

Postby 88wingrev » Tue Jun 23, 2015 5:44 pm



Ride an 88 GL1500 and love it. Riding the Colorado Rockies soon - is there an online listing to help find gasoline without ethanol? And if there's no place to get ethanol-free, is there an additive/treatment that can be used to help the old engine (113K miles) handle the ethanol gas better? We still have local stations that serve up the regular unleaded here along Hiway 2 in Nebraska as the bikers head to Sturgis, but I'm not so sure about Colorado. Any help would be appreciated! :)

A lot of marinas and small airports carry non E gas, also.

not trying to highjack this thread, but wow, i didn't realize that so many gas stations have non-ethanol gas. i was looking at this site you have the link to, and all i can say is WOW. i even found one station in Florida that has ethanol free gas and its rated at 110 octane. wonder how good that would be using it in a 32 year old bike.

thanks for the link to this site NVSB, i have it saved onto my desktop, and its gonna come in very handy for my road trip.

Glad I was able to help. :D
At the top of the website (about the 3rd line) there is a link to a map of locations that might help planning even more.

I was also amazed at how many there were, although it looks like it's primarily East of the Mississippi.
Absolutely none within a 100 miles of where I live in DFW.

Just wanted to note that you do need to be careful with the pure-gas list. On our recent trip we pulled in to Baker, OR to get gas at the Sinclair station. Couldn't find ethanol free at any of the pumps. I was about to go ahead and just fill up when my wife noticed that there was another Sinclair station a block furthur from the freeway. Went down there and still didn't see non-ethanol, then then the attendant came over and pointed me to another set of pumps where they had one pump out of 6 that was non-ethanol. We also ran into a couple stations in Montana that were not on the list but had non-ethanol, but at non-obvious locations.
Every day is a good day for a bike ride. Some days are just better than others.

while looking thru that pure gas website with the state to state reference chart, i noticed that you can add or remove stations that has and doesn't have ethanol free fuel.

Pure-Gas website is user driven.

It is up to you and me to keep it updated.

I added two stations locally, and removed all of the QT stations as they have dropped puregas from their pumps altogether...

I really like the Android app on my phone, if a puregas station is close by, I will use it.
If not, I use what is available.

I didn't mean to diminish pure-gas. I probably should have added the stations that weren't on their list, but I wasn't really in a position to do so at the time. My intention was to point out that there may be non-ethanol stations available while you are traveling that aren't on the list, so be willing to look around a bit if you really want noon-ethanol.

I well know that feeling, and if I don't make a note of some kind, it will never get done when I return home to a PC.

What I have been doing of late now, is to use an Address reporting app on my cellphone which will record the lat/long and also the nearest actual street address. Then you share it to whatever mode of forwarding you have available. SMS, email, local note app on phone, etc. I send it to myself via email and it makes a link that when clicked on a PC, will bring up Google Maps, with Street View you can actually see the store front and verify you are submitting a valid point to pure-gas.org's website.

Here is one:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... finderfree

This app is a bit unique in that it can hold the screen alive, and as you move along, it will indicate the current address as you are moving. It is a battery power hog, but useful in some situations.


Here is my favorite one after many efforts to find an app that presents the info quickly, and can share it with any app on your phone. I just now verified that it can store my home location to "ColorNote" on my phone. I selected that because it will create a New Note and allow me to add more info to the note.... makes it easy to access the info when you get home, and submit a new entry to pure-gas.org OR, to edit an existing entry with new info.

I use the Android app too, but it could use more features, such as reporting. A strictly Apple buddy of mine uses it on his iPhone and the apple app does a lot more, such as mileage, trip distance, price, etc. Once again, Android users get shafted =(

I do similar. Lately I've switched from Google Maps to Microsoft Here (the lesser of two evils? :lol: ) and Here will share the street address and lat/long with any app, SMS, email, etc. I usually either share it with Evernote so it's available on all my devices and PC or to Pushbullet (greatest app ever for sharing between devices, try it out) which will open a new browser tab in Chrome so it's there, open, waiting for me when I get home (keeps me from forgetting about it).

I live and ride up here in Ontario. I have no problem finding ethanol free gasoline, at the big oil company pumps, as long as I'm willing to buy premium fuel. I've got a '78 GL1000 so I just do what I have to do. ESSO, Canadian Tire, Shell, Ultramar all have ethanol free premium. PetroCan seems to have an odd policy, in that they have ethanol free 91 octane, but only at stations carrying 3 octane levels of fuel (87,89, and 91). At PetroCan stations with 4 octane levels available (87,89,91, and 94), all pumps contain ethanol. I know that sounds strange, but PetroCan's customer service has assured me twice, that is the case. All 87 and 89 octane fuels for the most part, at stations up here, contain up to 10% ethanol.
I realize that the question seems to be about availability of ethanol free fuel in the US. Does anyone know if there's generally no ethanol free premium fuel available in the US?
Hopefully, I'll be touring in the states this August and September, so it would be nice to know if ethanol free premium fuel is readily available down there.

the only thing i can suggest is that you look thru the states you'll be riding in on their alphabetical state list on their website. it will show in what states and where you can get it along with the octane rating.

Can you not add a little water to bind all the ethanol and freeze it. then pour out the gas. I did this for my diesel and it worked to separate the water out. Just asking

Look at the photo of the gas pump. Does the sign indicate that the gasoline from this pump is Ethanol-free gasoline? I'd never seen this labeling before. Is non-oxygenated fuel the same as ethanol-free fuel? Is this fuel suitable for use in my GL1000?

Oil companies oxygenate gas using one of two things: ethanol or MTBE. Non-oxygenated gas means it has neither of these. Your bike will run very well on this gas, and it's actually preferable, as that's what it was designed to run on.

So yes, this means this pump is ethanol-free.

I wish we had pumps like that around here!

Thanks for that! That's what I had suspected, but I wasn't sure. I just returned from a couple of weeks stateside, and occasionally I would see this label. Minnesota seemed to have quite a few.
Interpreting ethanol information is a royal pain in the you know what!! I agree, it would be nice to see pumps everywhere, that pump ethanol-free fuel, labeled as plain as that, to remove the confusion once and for all.
Maybe a national labeling policy to standardize everywhere,coast to coast? It seems simple to me!

Ethanol-free fuel around Indianapolis.
I was out this past weekend and came across a newly opened BP station, in Sheridan, IN that had a pump with Lucas Oil brand Ethanol-free fuel.
Hoping this is the start of a trend in the area.

What is Oxygenated Fuel?

Postby Solidbob » Thu Dec 31, 2015 11:24 am

I found this article that explains this well....

Oxygenated fuel is nothing more than fuel that has a chemical compound containing oxygen. It is used to help fuel burn more efficiently and cut down on some types of atmospheric pollution. In many cases, it is credited with reducing the smog problem in major urban centers. It can also reduce deadly carbon monoxide emissions.

This type of fuel works by allowing the gasoline in vehicles to burn more completely. Because more of the fuel is burning, there are fewer harmful chemicals released into the atmosphere. In addition to being cleaner burning, it also helps cut down on the amount of non-renewable fossil fuels consumed.

Oxygenated fuel has a number of different additives that can be inserted in order to produce the desired effect. For many years, MTBE was a common additive for this type of. However, MTBE was later found to be harmful to groundwater and has since been outlawed as a gasoline additive in some countries.

In more recent years, ethanol has become the additive of choice for oxygenated fuel in many places around the world. In the United States, it is produced mainly from corn. In Brazil, sugar is the crop of choice for producing ethanol. Research continues to look at ways to use other products for the manufacturing of ethanol. For example, switchgrass is targeted as the next generation ethanol oxygenated fuel.

In addition to MTBE and ethanol, a number of other chemical compounds could be added to fuel to produce the desired effects. However, MTBE and ethanol are the most common, with ethanol surging in recent years.

In the United States, most vehicles are designed so they can run on a 10-percent mixture of ethanol to regular gasoline with no problems. However, some automobiles are capable of running on a mixture that is 85-percent ethanol.

Some have criticized oxygenated fuel additives, and ethanol in particular, claiming the net benefit is overstated. Using corn, for example, has pushed the prices of the crop up to record levels in the commodities markets. That has led to an increase in some food prices, critics charge, as the most common basic feed for livestock is grain produced from corn. Others complain that oxygenated fuel reduces gas mileage and believe the benefit gained from supplementing fossil fuels is nearly all lost in the reduced gas mileage.

I hate Ethanol fuel and drive the miles it takes (75 mi ) to find stations that sell Ethanol Free fuel so I use it in my boat and I load my boat up with fuel cans on a piece of carpet for the ride to get filled up. Some will call this stupid, well I never have boat trouble for carbs on my 200HP Johnson, my weed eaters still run perfect after years, mowers never a problem... I do use StarTron Enzyne Fuel Stabilizer to help keep all my fuel / ethanol or non-ethanol fresh for two years.... doesn't turn color, and really burns clean.... I thru all my old Stabil away as it just turns into syrup if the fuel sits, then its even worse.

This is the best website but I have also found that a phone call to check availability is sometimes a good thing.... as some stations have reported availability is limited at times.... http://www.pure-gas.org

Just another note that this wonderful government throws money at ethanol production to keep it going... so they say now its going so well they are ready to increase the ethanol % to 15% from 10% so if you liked it before, you'll really love the new stuff..... any thing to help destroy engines and provide less mile per gallon..... So that's another reason the government is trying to stop production of non - ethanol fuels.... vintage cars use it, some aircraft, boats, etc....... and the government could care less.... kinda like Global Warming..... which actually adds to this if ya want to get techanial.

Hope this was informative..... FYI
