As long as the there is subsidized ethanol production, the ethanol will continue. Stop the subsidizing of ethanol and it goes away. That's why farmers in Arkansas are now raising corn instead of rice. They are now getting close to300 bu/a on irrigated ground previously used for rice/soybeans.

If no one buys it then it'll no longer be subsidized.

Not worth the hassle trying to find gas stations on interstates. Besides, it's all political and regardless of demand the subsidies will remain.

Looks like I would only have to go 80 miles (160 round trip) from my house to get some.

Something I noticed while at the states around Goshen this fall. The states that grow all the corn are the ones easiest to find pure gas.

Contrary to FT Turbs, I 95 and most interstates are not littered with non-ethanol stations and I've not had a problem with the fuel since 1978, so why bother?

I use what ever the pump has in it. All gas tanks here are fibreglass underground now. Turns is right, the ethonal does cause rust and the few steel tanks had extra filters for rust on the pumps still they could replace with fibreglass.
Interesting looking at the pure gas site, same brand stations are filled with the same gas as non brand but only one station is listed. I often wait till late Tuesday and get premium at regular price when the local station runs out of regular.

Today Diesel is the same price as reg gas. Has been for a year, i don't understand why diesel is so pricy south of the 49th..

Good links Turbs... I need E Free for my scoots and I've seen what E10 can do to outboards so I'm not a fan. I think today's systems are engineered to work fine in vehicle engines/tanks with E10 but the older stuff can get pretty trashed. Just thankful they didn't make E15!!
Will use those links on the road...gracias!

It would be nice to find ethanol free 87 octane somewhere local but all there is 91-92 octane ethanol free at 80 cents plus around here.
My riding mower gas cap has 10% ethanol max on it. Why is that?

Must be pretty new. Here 87 octane no alcohol is about $.25 per gallon higher. It's what I run in everything gas/small.
