Stations that sell alcohol free gasoline

How about a thread listing gas stations that sell 100% gasoline?I know our older cars do not like ethanol,it ruins the rubber lines and the carb gaskets.
I passed one today in Decatur on Danville road a block west from the Beltline sorry, I forgot the name of it but there is a big sign out front advertising the fact.

I don't think there is any ethanol free gas made any more. and if it is it won't be for long. they gonna dilute it with something to stretch it out I would rather it be corn squeezings than water.

In Huntsville there are two Fuel City stations that I know of...one on Whitesburg and one on South Parkway and they both have ethanol free gas. That's where I get my fuel from

I think any fuel stations that have any type of blend are required to list that fact on the pump. I've found Shell and Chevron stations sometimes don't have the stickers, so I assume that the fuel is not a blend.

There is a gas station on Old Madison Pike close to Harolds Dr. that sells E free gas. I think its a Mystick Gas station. I saw the Gas station on South Pkwy yesterday. It is at the Intersection of Mt. Gap/ Pkwy

Beat me to it. I've had good luck using the stations listed. It is normally a little more expensive.

Great link! I researched it a bit and according to this link to www.fuel-testers.com, Alabama is required to have a sticker at the pump when there is even 1% ethanol. So, that being said, any pumps without a sticker should be pure fuel.

I also ran into this discussion on this same topic. While some of the posts are dated, I think they may still be valid:
http://www.alabamagasprices.com/Foru...age_no=1&FAV=N

And finally, this was a project someone started for a maps of Ethanol free stations in the Huntsville area, but it hasn't been updated in a while. Maybe we should help update it?

Where in town can you find ethanol-free 93?

You can also get it at a gas station that's tied in with a car wash on highway 20 near publix. There about 10 cents cheaper the the other one. I also think there's a few in south huntsville as well.

The gas station/liquor store/crackhead hangout/car wash/dog wash/dry cleaner? That one? Hahahahaha! The older Asian couple that own it are pretty cool though haha.

I wish more stations would start carrying e85 again, then it would be viable for me to do an e85 map =\

I refuse to buy from Citgo due to being owned by Hugo Chavez. Just my personal preference. Others are free to do as they please of course.

That it's. If i'm not mistaken you live down the road from me and were behind me the other day in a red supra.

I didn't realize that Citgo was 100% gas.

I don't think they all are. Look for the sticker. If you see it, it's ethanol. If you don't see it, it's pure fuel.
