Anyone know of any? I search online and it lists only DOT sites, but word of mouth people tell me they're out there....?

and please no one needs to tell me how its a scam or crap and don't buy it...Its such crap that converting my car I will pick up probably 30-40whp in my car over gas. E85 DOES out perform regular gas in turbo charged applications. Anyone who says other wise has no idea wtf they're talking about.

I haven't seen any in the Hartford area, and I spend a lot of time on the road servicing clients.

Speaking purely from a performance standpoint, sure E85 will let you turn up the wick...just be sure your fuel system can supply the needed demand, you'll use a LOT more fuel running E85, and that's the rub.

E85 stations are very very rare outside of the Midwest (and in some cases California), sorry........but unless you're putting your car in races, do you really need the extra HP anyway? I mean I like the idea of not using oil from "terrorist lands", etc., and the fact that E85 (if we can ever grow enough corn) is techinically "renewable", but still....

Maybe you should move to Brazil where it's more common than gasoline

There is 1 new station in waterford I guess. Was hoping this was a trend.

Yes it will need fuel system upgrades...but thats not a problem, larger fuel injectors, a larger fuel pump with a rescale will run me about 400 bucks total...Its fun when an M3 can't pass you, it would be even more fun when a 911 has troubles. = P

Large injectors, a real high capacity, non walmart/bro fuel pump (And required conversion for non ethanol compatible items) and a ECU reflash, plus dyno tuning for $400? LOL Good luck!

Meh...I guess, but there comes a time after owning 1000hp vehicles (And a truck making 1300ft lbs. ) when you don't bother on the streets.
