    non-ethanol gas in town

    wasn't sure what sub to put this under.

    does anyone know of any gas stations in reno or sparks that have gas without any e10 or e15 in it? my old pickup runs better without ethanol in the gas.

    Um yeah I think the new one on South Meadows has it. I've never paid much attention to it but the button is blue.

    Thanks for asking this. I know it's been discussed in year past and we never found anyone carrying it. I just drove into the South Meadows Maverick since I was nearby and saw it for myself.

    Kind of excited now for the next couple fuel ups. I've wanted to try e-free gas for years.

    Only wheeled Kia Sorento in Nevada on 31's.

    So Ethanol free 'regular' gas is the same price as 'premium' with ethanol. What a racket.

    I'm bummed they still don't offer ethanol free 91. That shit is such a joke having to add 10-15 %. It costs more to make and lowers your fuel mileage plus gas doesn't store as long with the ethanol mixed.

    Good information guys! Thank you! I thought Washoe county still had "winter blend" fuel requirements. That stuff sucked. Kills performance and mileage. For years we waited until we got to Fallon or Carson to buy fuel for the bikes or buggy.
    Its just a road with a few rocks, keep driving!

    Maybe mix that Ethanol free 87 with some Race Gas/Octane booster.

    Sierra Fuels on 4th/Sutro has ethanol free also. Maverick is a lot simpler if there is one near you. Sierra isn't exactly a "gas station", but they do sell it at the pump.
