What is the name of the station. $4.20 really isnt that bad when you need to let it sit a few weeks between fishing trips. Or worse. if the Little Kicker wont start.

BP on 87 right at the interstate has ethanol free gas. I hate buying from BP but beats paddling.

Pretty sure it was the Parade station. Station is on the south east corner. Look for the MARINE GRADE FUEL BANNER hanging from the sign

I took my gas can and drove over to hwy 87 at the B P this morning. All their pumps said 10% or less ethenol. The station attendant couldn't speak clear english, and He could not tell me if it did or didn't have any ethanol. all he could do was tell me their gas is tested. Showed me the papers. The papers said there was no water in the gas.?????
I decided to pass this time.

Gas station at the corner of Hwy-90 and Ward Basin rd over in Milton, claims to have non ethynol gas. i think its the Local Yokel gas station, not the Tom Thumb.

Default test for ethanol?

Is there a test we can use to detect ethanol?
I heard of a story of a guy filling up with what he thought was non ethanol from a non ethnaol pump and ended up with ethanol type damgage yamaha fuel pump $2000 bill.

Go to baileys.com. They have small ethanol testers you can use to see how much ethanol (alcohol) is in the gas. They are cheap also

All you need is a test tube or turkey baster, etc.
Put a teaspoon, etc. of water in it and mark the tube at the waterline.
Then add the gasoline and shake well.
Wait for the waterline to reappear.

If it is now higher than the previous mark, there is ethanol in the gasoline.

There is a station in Milton called The Other Place that has 93 octane with no ethanol. It is located at the corner of Willard Norris and Hwy 89 (bypass).
