Just wondering....looking for a little better performance and MPG's out of my 'Stang. Most gas stations sell blends with 10% ethanol these days...which isn't necessarily a good thing for performance cars.

Good luck it seems most of the gasoline comes off the colonial pipeline and is basically the same from station to station. 10% ethanol is the rule.

Saw signs around saying BP was supposed to be ethanol free?

I thought it was a federal mandate unless it's "off road" fuels such as VP Racing fuels etc.

Ethanol actually has a much higher "octane" rating then gasoline and allows for a more agressive timing map and higher compression with no side effects. Find a good tuner and get that ECU remapped. Definetly lower MPG though due to the lower BTU content per gallon.

FWIW - NC law does *not* require an Ethanol label on gas pumps that have a 10% or less Ethanol/gas mix.

Look for a place that caters to fishermen. 2 cycle boat motors like it better too.

I know of three places within a 10 miles of my house, which is near the Lee/Chatham/Wake/Harnett county lines.

One is on Hwy 42 at Buckhorn Road, East of Sanford, one is in Moncure on Old US#1 (they have a cool butcher shop there too!), and the 3rd is Yow's which is in Harnet County, I think on 421 just South of Sanford. The one in Moncure is closest to Southern Wake.

I don't boat, I just tend to remember odd and useless info...
