for those of us who like using pure gasoline, when possible, goto:

the list includes the USA & Canada

hope this helps

Life shouldn't be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely, in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather, to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly shouting, Holy #$%^&** What a ride!

And, so far, it has been...

The locations north of the DFW area, Gainesville, St Jo, Nocona, should be accurate. I buy gas from all these places and test it regularly. Unfortunately, people presume that the absence of a 10% Ethanol sticker on the pump means that it's real gas and post it on the website.

I talked to a representative of the Texas Dept. of Agriculture who is involved in monitoring stations. Despite the requirement that pumps be marked when dispensing ethanol, it is widely ignored. Alarmingly, he mentioned that 91 octane fuel at one station (in the ethanol area) tested at an actual 94 octane. We both wondered if that fuel had been "splash blended" to about 25% ethanol. The requirement is to add a certain volume of alcohol to the nation's fuel, not a certain percentage. Some distributors may be looking for creative ways to get rid of it.

My R1200RT gets a stone-reliable 50 mpg on real gas. Last month, I had to use the ethanol-blended stuff on a ride out of the area, and the mileage dropped to 45 mpg.
