If they can get tetra ethyl.. They may have some. Interesting thought... I was gonna buy some onetime... Long story. A smart dude told me it wouldn't do anything but slow combustion. They have good supplements these days for that.

Thats absolutely untrue.

I go by 8 stations on the way to work, big city and small town and they ALL have an option of either ethanol or ethanal free gas.

I also dont know that ive seen an ALL ethanol gas station.

Agreed. But also consider the fat pedal beside of it. I see too many people tailgating, and having to use the brakes too often because of that. Drivers will brake at the last minute for a red light. As soon as I see a light turn yellow or red, I back off the accelerator right then. Many times I don't even have to use the brakes, as the light will turn green while I am still coasting. That guy that passed me while I was coasting now has to regain is momentum all over again buy overusing the skinny pedal.

Both of those pedals on the floor are gas hogs.

you dudes are pulling trailers ... so give this idea up about trying to save any gas ..
Mtnguy has the answer .. slow down .. ease up .. and enjoy your life.
I reprogrammed my ECU and the only thing it got be is ... way better performance ...and way more fun to drive. no increase is gas mileage ... because that basically voids the logics of physics
Downsides of reprogramming ... the manufactures are all over this scenario, they can see when and how you reprogrammed ... and void out your warranty .. especially if you have a turbo D.

You need to get out of Iowa, I have yet to see any station that offers both in the last 5-10 yrs. Every station I've been to only offer ethanol mixed.

Your getting old and cant see real well.

Every pump ive seen in eastern Iowa has an option of ethanol or non ethanol.

Like I said, you need to get out of Iowa and see for yourself. Don't need pictures of eastern Iowa, some of us travel in more states than Iowa. Want me to take some pictures of the pumps here in FL?

You can get ethanol free here in East Tenn. Costs about .25 more per gallon. Only thing I use in mowers, generators, etc.
