My generator instructions recommend this type, but I don't know anything about where to buy it.

Ethanol 10 I believe would be 10% ethanol gas which is everywhere. I think every gas station in NJ sells that as standard gas to everyone.

Ethanol free is very hard to find. I looked once and there was a place in the middle of South Jersey somewhere that sold it, I think mostly for some hobby use or something like go carts of off road ATV's, and that was the only place in the state.

If you have a Sunoco near you and they have Ultra94 (94 octane as opposed to Premium which is 92), that is usually ethanol free. I have a Sunoco station down the road from me and I only buy gas for my saws there for that reason. Very small 2 strokes also benefit from the higher octane. I don't think the E10 is that big of a deal for four strokes other than the fact that it is hydrophilic (absorbs water), so if you use a fuel conditioner like Seafoam you'll be fine. I run Seafoam in all of my equipment and don't bother to drain the gas at end of the season anymore. A six month old tank of Seafoam treated gas will start up on the first pull just like new.

Any boating marina, or airport sells ethanol-free gas. Gas with ethanol melts boat gas tanks (at least older ones for sure) so they have to carry ethanol-free gas at the marina's.

Don't leave gas that has ethanol mixed in it sitting in the tank longer than a couple days at most, or it'll cause issues. Run the tank dry.

Ethanol Free Gas Stations

I don't think NJ has any ethanol free stations so you would have to resort to gasoline at marine fuel stations. NJ may be among a number of states that require an ethanol mixture by law.

If the generator label states 10% ethanol is fine then you can visit any gas pump.

TruFuel sold in cans in Lowes and Home Depot is 100% gasoline. Its expensive though. Around $6 a quart or $20 a gallon. I bought a few quarts last week for my snow blower.

Not all gas sold at NJ marinas is ethanol free.
You have to ask to be sure.
A brand to look for is Valv-Tech.

Every regular gas station sells E-10, which is 10% Ethanol.
Although there is a federal move afoot to allow selling E-15, (15% Ethanol)

WaWa has been popping up all over Florida and that's where I get it. I have a collection of vintage car and vehicles with carburetors will not tolerate the ethanol. It's good in boats too. I have found a lot of the gas stations that say 10% max ethanol to actually contain up to about 17%! Get the test kit on Amazon or from summit and check, they put a LOT more in than you think

Write to your congressman to remove this garbage out of our gas. It cost 70% more to manufacture ethanol and isn't even great for the engines. Its another scam to take money out of our pockets and line them of some powerful people that paid off some politicians.

Not to mention you get worse mileage with ethanol infused fuel. I know they say it is supposed to be better for the environment, but that is very minimal honestly. But for any small engines, I usually use the TruFuel from walmart or lowes. It is expensive, but I used to work at Lowes and we had people non-stop come in for repairs on their lawn mowers or weed eaters because they let the ethanol gas sit in there to long. $100 each time to fix it.
