Default Gas Question

Hello,
Does anyone use non-ethanol gas? I've decided to use the non-ethanol gas they sell at the local station, it's 89 octane, has anyone else gone that route? If not, what do you use?

I avoid ethanol, it is not a good idea with lawn equipment, power equipment, older cars, boats, etc....

It wouldn't be a problem with the H3, but it is just cheap gas. I use Marathon 87. Never a fuel issue with anything.

In the area of Wis. that I live we are forced to have reformulated gas and only able to purchase ethanol blend. It $ucks to say the least. I'd love it if we could have simply gas. No junk in it just gas. But hey I'm grateful we can even get the reformulated stuff.... It can always be worse we could be forced to have all electric haha!

Cool

In NJ all you see is signs that say the gas may contain ethanol. They don't have to state whether it does or it does not. Most all marinas have ethanol free gas but using marine gas is both expensive and impractical. Here's a website that lists by state where ethanol free gas can be found.

Thanks,
All the Local WaWa stores around here sell ethanol free gas, it's about five cents higher than the 89 octane.
