I would like to know where to find NO ETHANOL gas in the Gwinnett County or North Georgia area. Also looking for high octane ideas without the cost of custom race fuels...My best thought there is to buy the real expensive No Lead Race Fuel and combine/cut it with the best NO ETHANOL stuff I can find.

p.s. I am using some of that Blue Enzyme Ethanol Buster stuff and wondering if it actually works

I forget the exact URL but there's a master list of all eth-free stations that's something like puregas.org so fish around on Google and you'll find it.

Nothing in Gwinnett - Short Stop Valero station on E Spring St at N Madison in Monroe GA has 90 octane ethanol free gas. I usually try to make a pickup on my way back from a ride. Gotta think ahead.
https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Monroe,+ ... a&t=m&z=19 and zoom out.

I looked at boosting octane and concluded that without raising compression there's little need for higher octane.

Best,

I didn't realize there was one so close to me in Social Circle. I think I may drive out and get 5 gallons tomorrow and do some testing at Cherokee :D

"Recreational Fuel" pump is on the East side of the building.

Call up your local "drag car" shops or dirt track fabrications or tuner shops.. They will know where to get 100+ octane gas..


Oxgenated FTW tho.. Low Octane rating but super high Oxygen content..

Ya may or may not need race gas, depending on the bike/mods. Anyhow....
Road ATL has Sunoco race fuels from the pump. Not always able to get in the gates though, depends whats going on there. (Call 1st)
RSS is across the street from the entrance to Road ATL, they have VP110 @ $56 for the 5 gal can on my last visit there. (3-4 months ago)
Valero, @ exit 147 off I-85 has Sunoco 110 from a seperate pump, $8.80something a gal @ my last time there about a month ago, about a buck cheaper per gal than Rd ATL.
I can get away with as little as 25% 110 race gas, when mixed with 93 pump & not get the pinging I will get with straight pump gas in my smokers. (CR250-YZ144)
I've been using Startron or Sta-bil marine with the pump (ethanol laced) fuel, @ least helps with the moisture attraction & other problems caused by ethanol.
IMO, when available/accessible use non ethanol gas, otherwise treat the pump junk.
If needed, cut it with race gas to get the % of octane required. ::up::

I tried ethanol free in my carbureted ST1100 - fuel mileage over 3 fillups when down from 40.0 - 39.5. Same route everyday. Maybe FI systems are different.

Never sits more than a few days so ethanol issues aren't a problem.

Best,

We have 3 stations in Newnan now that are selling ethanol free gas. I notice it in the street bikes when I run it. Usually the mileage is up and the bike overall runs better.

FI or carb?

Which begs the question: An unscrupulous proprietor could sell 10% in the 0% pump and pocket the difference. Is there a quick easy way to detect ethanol like put some in a test tube with a bit of water to cause separation or something?

FI on the Vstrom.

I'm not sure how other stations are doing it, but here in Newnan the stations that sell non ethanol have a sole pump (usually like you would find Kerosene or Diesel dispensed from) sitting by its self or mounted in between the other pumps. So they must have a different storage tank just to store the non-ethanol gas. Not sure how you would tell if they weren't being honest, but something tells me the fines for being caught for doing that would be pretty high and severe.

Be warned the place in C'ville is a "commercial" place and is only open M-F during business hours. They have no-ethanol in addition to the VP100.


This page has a list of places that carry Sunoco race fuels.

If you have to have emissions done on your car in your county you won't find no-ethanol fuel in that county except at a specialty fuel distributor....the closest to Atlanta that I have found is SA White in Marietta, another "commercial" type place, but they are open on Saturday's. I believe this is the only place to get it in the metro area.

Aside from SA White, cbob's suggestion is probably closest to gwinnett. Once you get outside metro Atlanta there are no-ethanol stations here and there.
