The parade on racetrack, gatlin lumber, and the legendary marina on the island side of brooks bridge all have ethanol free gas. The price will always be best at gatlin though

Speaking of this next month the EPA will look to approve 15% E fuel, Whatever happened to Gatz proposal to not force station to carry E fuel in FL?? Also is it cheaper to use and additive to kill the E fuel, it costs too much to drive to FWB from Destin to buy gas 2 x's a week!

You must be talking about driving to FWB from Destin with a trailer, not on the water. You think that short drive costs you too much in fuel? I drive 10 miles out of my way to Gulf Breeze because they have the cheapest Ethanol free gas, and I'm using far less gas driving my truck and trailer to go get gas then I would be to just pull up to any on water location for fuel.
On average the Pure in Gulf Breeze is $.50 cents cheaper for ethanol premium than Gatlin offers for regular ethanol free...and the Pure is about $.80 center cheaper than anything on the water. I think you can count the savings.

I've been using a fuel stabilizer and try to fill up whenever my boat is on the trailer at sams club. No problems so far but it's still a new engine. There's a line on mercs that lets you drain water from the engine too, but definately put a good fliter on and clean it often.

Sorry FrankwT my misunderstanding, that changes the thought process. Does going ethanol free increase your MPG, if so by how much? That might also help decide if it is cost effective. Look into SeaFoam unless you use it already, once every 3 months for your truck, everybody including myself will attest to what it has done for any engine it has been poured into.
On the flip side, I drove into Destin in the last few weeks and thought I remembered seeing prices dropping there quicker than FWB...on the ethanol fuel. Are there land based ethanol free stations in the Destin/San Destin area?

Nope Gatlin Lumber is the closest in FWB. I have used seafoam but he additive that stabilizes ethanol works better I think, neither add to the gas mileage like reg gas...3-4 MPG in my truck.

If you have a military ID card, the Ft. Benning Recreation area sells eth. free fuel at a great price...

For those of you that think you are saving money by purchasing ethanol fuel at a cheaper price by the gallon, you are very mistaken. It will I guarantee you cost way more in the long run I promise. Ethanol kills fuel lines, diaphram pumps and rubber gaskets and O rings fuel tanks in boats and will eventually catch up to you in your motor. There is no additive that prevents phase separation of ethanol fuel and alchohol completely. So like the old fram oil filter commercial used to say. You can pay me now or you can pay me later, it is up to you.
