Do any of the gas stations have ethanol free anymore? or did they all jump on that wagon?

I'm going to try it this summer. I drain my carb after every ride to avoid any drama

Zack, it's a nys mandate. Actually, I think it's gone federal now. Everyone has it. When I went to S.C., I looked for reg gas and didn't find any.

ive never used any gas treatment, but i ride my bike a lot, so the gas is always getting rotated.

quick fill was the last hold out for ethanol free gas, at least around here but they have 10% now too.

I used to run sea foam through my trucks gas but reading about the  ethanol being a detergent, I wonder if its worth running cleaners anymore?

i think its a federal mandate now though, so that site is likely useless.

yeah everyone has it now. My bike runs fine on it. I just make sure the carb is drained after riding. I'm just pissed that it is more inefficient than regular gas.
