Since last summer, Pure-gas.org has been compiling a list of stations that sell, surprise, "pure gas," and it gives credence to WECT's observation. Currently, Pure-gas lists 1,531 stations in the U.S. and Canada that don't mix corn with petrol, which is exactly what site owner Sam Hokin had in mind when he started the site:Ethanol is a hidden danger inside gasoline that can cause damage to engines. Several years ago, Congress wanted to cut down on oil imported from the Middle East, so they added ethanol to gasoline. But anytime fuel with ethanol sits unused it can clog the system and cause major problems. Since boats aren't used as much as cars, they're more prone to damage.
We buy [pure gas] because we want to fuel our vehicles with it. If you want to save money on gas, this site is of no use to you - it will NOT have gasoline prices on it. They vary from day to day and this site isn't about saving money. It's about finding pure gasoline for your machine.
