So the Vulcan station on Wall Triana stopped selling real gas and has switched over to 10% ethanol. That was the last station I knew about on the west side of Madison County selling real gas.

Does anyone know of any other stations not selling 10% ethanol?
Is there a webpage to track such things?

Thanks

The only ethanol free station I know of in Madison City is the Phillips 66 on Hughes just before 20.

Madison isn't even listed on that site...

What? Well they still charge more than Chevron, sheesh.

I ran the numbers on the price difference and it would be cheaper if I had to replace my fuel pumps every 5yrs vs using cheaper gas elsewhere.

Ironically my fuel pumps died in the Porsche the week before xmas, so we'll see how many years I get!

A couple of months ago they took down the ethanol free signs and have the 10% ethanol sign on the pump.

I would almost exclusively get gas there and would average at least 2 mpg more than ethanol gas.

isn't it strange that ethanol is so expensive to produce, plus then blending it to gas, yet blended gas sells cheaper than plain old unblended gas.

We are in an energy crisis, yet the gov pushes ethanol blended gas over real gas that performs better, and is better for our cars.

The Phillips 66 in Madison at the corner of Madison Blvd and Hughes now sells Sugar Free (Ethanol Free) Gas at Pump 10 only. It is on the left side of the building and is premium grade only. The rest of the pumps now contain ethanol in all grades.

Ok, so that is what that sign means.

That's the power of the ADM and corn farmers' lobby at work. They got worried about the direct subsidy ($6B/year) being cut last year, so they converted it to a hidden mandate that pays the bill through highly inflated corn prices.
