I believe that you can get ethanol free gas at marinas and airport using airport transfers sevenoakss. I think that airports have 100 octane. Friends of mine do this, but I've yet to try.
|We boat as well as LBC, and as far as I can find around here no marinas have ethanol free. Many are advertising "Valvetech" fuel which tries to make you think it's ethanol free, but I think many don't get any special fuel, just add Valvetech additive, which is available in bottles at many marine supply places, and touts it's use on ethanol fuel. It takes 1 oz of it per 10 gal. gas, I just used it today, took the TF for a 75 miles cruise. |

|it is illegal to purchase aviation fuel for use in a roadable vehicle. aviation fuel is exempt from the road use taxes. the high lead content in (even "low" lead) av gas can be harmful to our engines..lead fouling and i just read an article about lead scoring of cylinder walls. regards, tom|
|We have stations in Wisconsin that sell racing fuel. Normally find it in towns where they have racetracks. Not supposed to buy it for street cars, but they sure do sell a lot of it in my town.|
We are also lucky in that we have a lot of non-leaded stations. Some go out of their way to point out that their fuel does not have alcohol in it.
For the boaters, You really should use a stabilizer if you run ethanol fuel. Same for the smowmobiles and two stroke motorcycles.
I will be driving my TD down to Reno, and am concerned about the use of gas with ethanol. Your comment about the use of a stabilizer is of interest to me. Would there be any advantage in using it in my MG as I have never run anything but a 91 or 92 octane? I would appreciate your thoughts, or any other members, on the subject.
