Seems to get thougher to find Ethanol Free Gas these days on the Eastcoast , even Marinas are not carrying ethanol free , in my non injected bikes and machines I have allways used 100LL and never has a problem .
I'm just outside Philadelphia Pa and to find Ethanol Free at the pump is about an hour other wise got to buy the VP stuff which is not cheap .
I usually drive the hour in my truck and fill up a 55 gallon drum .
I usually try and switch over all the bikes to ethanol free stuff once I get closer to winter , you can't even trust regular stations these days on what fuel they buy to put in there tanks , really sucks .

Yep I drive 30 min away at the end of the season to fill up my race gas cans with non ethanol gas to fill up my bike for the winter.

Have you ever actually tested your local gas for ethanol content. The pumps say ''may contain up to 10% ethanol'' here , but the 93 super unleaded here has none.

Don't really have any trouble finding non-ethanol gas here. Living on the coast here in Wilmington NC it seems to be everywhere. I can think of 3 stations within 2 miles of where I live that have it, both in the regular and premium grade.

Ethanol free gas is labeled and its against the law here to mislabel it. So I am pretty sure it is. lol

You're aren't understanding me , the pumps say ''MAY contain up to 10% ethanol'' , as in it MAY have less or none. I've tested the 93 in my area and it has NONE even though the pumps say it MAY. If you have tested the gas in your area you may be wasting your money for nothing.

Its tough to trust any station , if your in Florida or Hawaii they actually have repealed the Ethanol mandate , they still sell blended gas but they have pumps for boats and ATV's with non ethanol . My buddy just caught a Shell station putting E85 in the E10 pump tank , he actually called the weights and measures and they verified that . Sucks you can't trust any station .

You are not understanding me. The pump does not say "may require 10% ethanol" It specifiaclly says NO ETHANOL. that's why people flock to these stations that don't have it. No sure how many times I need to say it before you get it through ur thick fuckin skull.

Listen MORON , I was be extremely patient with your ignorant ass , but obviously you don't have a grasp of the English language. Anybody else should test your local gas for actual ethanol content otherwise you're just pissing into the wind like the non riding little piss ant above.

Different states mandate use of Ethanol , I'm in PA and they are one of the states that receive federal highway money so in turn they mandate use of 10% Ethanol aka Agricultural Welfare gas is the worst thing ever . I family in IOWA and they have more of a choice at there pumps to not use Ethanol in there equipment ... They manufacture it but won't use it ... Cost to much to repair there equipment .
I just switched over my bikes I use on regular road basis ... The KTM's usually only get non ethanol all the time . I had a 2009 KTM have the tank replaced under waranty for a swollen tank , I was lucky the dealer got that threw back then 10 yrs ago , not sure if that would fly these days with all the blend of gas the damage they could do to plastic tanks .
