We have a local station 12 miles away that offers 91 non-E , otherwise it's 32 miles to a Hy-Vee that carries both 87 & 91 non-E fuels . What irritates me is the price difference - .30-.90 cents per gallon higher for non ethanol . We pay taxes in several ways to subsidize the Ethanol market , yet get charged more when we don't use it ??
I will say this , both the Taco and the Cruiser run a lot better and get better mileage on the non-e ...

Rick is that for 87 or 91?
Keep us posted on what improvements it makes.
That is for 90 at the station I used. The plan is to post up my review after a few fill-ups.

For those reading this thread and wondering about where you can find "Ethanol-Free" gas in your respective area, click the "pure-gas.org" website. From there, click your state, and it has a locator system by towns and with maps.

The station is in Princeton 61356 on Route 6 (west Peru street) - Beck's Phillips 66 . Some of the Hy-Vee fuel stores (like Peru, Illinois) also have non-ethanol once you get away from the cities . I use either pure-gas.org or an app on my Nokia Win8 (grrr) phone called Gas Buddy - which uses member input on prices and fuel grades . I also have several old Wheel Horse garden tractors that absolutely hate ethanol - so I buy around 8 gallons at a time and use Sta-bil to store it for use in those old Kohler engines . Same with oil - it's nearly impossible to buy high zinc content oil for the Cruiser and the Horse's Kohlers - so I get a lot of bottles of Rislone concentrate - the Cruiser gets a whole bottle per oil change with Delo 400 diesel oil . The Horses use Mobile 1 standard dyno oil with Rislone - 8oz per oil change since they hold 2qts each . So far , so good , for now....
