Ethanol Free Gas in Rochester

Actually the last time I was at the Henrietta Fastrac (Chalkins Rd and West Henrietta Rd) they switched the pumps with E80 out with 87 ethanol free. It was about twenty cents more expensive than 87 with 10% ethanol, I think that day it was $4.04 a gallon. Not sure about other Fastracs.

For all the well documented reasons I run non-ethanol in the boats as much as possible, but compare mileage in your trucks. The increased mpg more than makes up for the price difference. I think one of the big reasons the ethanol fraud is promoted is to slow down the loss of tax revenue on gasoline sales. As mpg gets better and better in todays vehicles, "dumbing down" the gas and retarding mileage helps stem this loss. Support the real gas movement.

I think you're 100% on the money Vince. My mileage with 2 tanks of 87 no ethanol in my Silverado more than covers the $ difference. Ask the managers of your favorite stations that you want it.
