All three of my vehicles need non-oxygenated gas, but the last station I knew to sell pure gas no longer has it available. If you know of a station within, say, 20 miles of Baton Rouge I'll gladly drive there to get it.

I believe the former governor, Baboon Blanco, got it passed into law that some time in 2009 all gas sold in the state must contain ethanol, but until then I'd like to keep using the real stuff.

Hi there,
I have been under the false assumption that gas stations supplying an ethanol blend would be required to label content at the pump. Forget EISA 2007, I want to know what kind of petro I am putting in MY sports vehicle. Do you know where I can get E free gas around Baton Rouge? I travel frequently to Lafayette and New Orleans. Would I do better to fuel up around there? If I stick with supreme, is that enough to protect my engine?
This is koolaid I don't want to drink nor buy into...

I think it is all ethanol. Our company carries fuel for much of Louisiana and on the Baton rouge side of things, Im pretty sure all the refineries and loading racks are ethanol. This is occurring in the shreveport/bossier area as well, though the monroe area still has some non ethanol stores. Im sure osme more out of the way nonbranded areas still have conventional fuel but more and more I am entering codes for ethanol when setting up deliveries in the system. Frankly, I hate ethanol and the huge hassle it is to transport and deal with. If any water gets into holding tanks, the stuff is ruined and has to be pumped out.

Baton Rouge is a designated ozone non-attainment area. Good luck finding non-ethanol here. Best bet is outside the non-attainment area (which is EBR, WBR, Iberville, Livingston, Ascension).
I personally have yet to have a problem and don't know of anyone that has. So I can't speak of it.

I was told that there are two locations to purchase non-ethanol gas in Baton Rouge. The bad part, I can't remember where. However, if you're that interested, the service manager at Richards Honda can tell you where to go. I know one of the locations is a Circle K... It's not much help, but hopefully something you can work with to gain more info.

Thanks so much. I get very poor gas mileage and performance with ethanol.

Thanks, Innotech, although my understanding from one of the Circle-K district managers is that most of the gas comes from Mississippi. I had heard that since the government over there doesn't want to meddle in such personal choices as this, it was a strong possibility that it would be possible to find such stations. On a trip back from Memphis just a few weeks ago, I checked around for pure gas, and there wasn't any.

Anyone with any sense already knows that the ethanol thing is a political event designed to show how our great President can look good to the environmentalists. And, redbean, while it is true that ethanol lowers potential gas mileage, the real reason you don't want to use this stuff is that it will wear out your engine faster, and wreak havoc on rubberized parts in the fuel system. If that isn't enough, it will cause your fuel tank to rust much faster.

I think the LA Express stations in Pointe Coupee have ethanol-free.
