PostSubject: Ethanol FREE North Carolina gas stations...   Thu Oct 18, 2012 10:19 pm

I decided to start a thread to spread the word on ethanol free gas stations in North carolina.

The reason for this: I have been filling up with ethanol free gas lately and I have noticed up to a 30 mile per tank gain in fuel mileage!

So, when you discover an ethanol free gas station, post it up here! I'll start.....

Marathon Gas
10420 Chapel Hill Rd - Morrisville, NC
* PUMP 11 only *

90 octane rating

I noticed some of these stations down in Georgia a few weeks ago. Since ethanol sucks for mpg, I'd love to find some ethanol-free stations in the Triad.

I don't trust the info on the pure gas site. It's not verified info, and many folks think that just because the pump doesn't say 10% Ethanol on it, its ethanol free. Definitely not true in NC.

That website shows one right down the road from me: 8533 Old Concord Rd. Charlotte... but I pass it every day and it's the sketchiest-looking gas station I've seen in town. Plus their gas prices are usually $0.20 higher per gallon than any other station around.

Good to know on the pure gas site I do know the one station I published is Non Ethanol though.

Yeah, but if David's numbers are accurate, you're getting around 1.5 higher mpg or roughly 8%-9% improvement on an average FJ. You're only paying 5%-6% higher prices so it'd still be a deal if the place wasn't so sketchy.

Wise oil has a station that sells Ethanol free gas in China Grove.
They are right on hwy 29 and the corner of Church st/Lentz Rd.

Obviously they charge a higher price and they are not a chain station but they are clean and have modern pumps. One bonus is that due to the cheaper BP station across the hwy, the pumps at Wise are never crowded.

They are closed after hours each day and all day sunday.
