Am I the only one who wonders how "Truthful" these stations are about their fuel being ethanol free? I have a very hard time taking their word for it. Is there a way to be sure that what you get is really what you're paying for? I feel that some places will sell off the cut gas for the 100% just to make a quick buck.

You can buy a testing kit and check it yourself.

http://www.fuel-testers.com

Gas stations are regulated and tested periodically. They are subject to stiff fines if they are fraudulent. Now as to whether that actually happens it is probably like everything else.

I found this on google - "ethanol testing made easy" .....I have not tried it, yet!

A quick check with pint jars of ethanol-free fuel and adulterated fuel indicated that a drop of any color food coloring will dissolve and turn the adulterated fuel the same color as the food coloring. Putting a drop of food coloring in pure gasoline, the drop just goes to the bottom of the sample and rolls around there as little globules. Now I just carry a bottle of inexpensive and readily obtainable food coloring and a quart glass jar – it’s easier to get a fuel sample into – and have an instant indication of ethanol free fuel or adulterated fuel.”

Remember, always test every batch of gasoline purchased at any location other than an airport — “Let the buyer beware” !

Fishin4Fun, I've always wondered the same thing since the only stations you see with 100% gasoline is mom and pop stores, or non major name brands. There is one Texaco on the way to lake Weiss, but its on a different pump out front. Wonder why the major brands don't carry it if they can sell it for more. Maybe because it's not ethanol free, and don't want the backlash from it. Just a thought.

I just tried the food coloring test on some ethanol-free gas and it worked - the red dye just rolled up in a little ball.

have you tried it on some ethanol gas to see if it indeed does turn the gas to the same color as the dye?

Does anyone know of any station on Hwy. 58 or close that has ethanol free gas? Seems like it would be a good business move for a station to have a real gas pump with all the boaters in that area. If you know of a station anywhere in that area please let us know about it .

If you have a smart phone you can get a free app that will give you all the 100% gas stations in your area and its called "Pure Gas". It doesn't give prices but will give you addresses. Pretty cool!
