Not sure about where you are but around here the marinas have very little to no ethanol in the fuel.

For what it's worth, I ran the sta bil in my boat from day one and still had issues. There are plenty of stations in Lafourche, Terrebonne, and Assumption parish so I would have to believe there are quite a few in your area. The best way to find out where is check with commercial fisherman and sport fishermen with nice boats. I have several stations near me that have no ethanol and that is where all the boats and skis fill up. I don't know if they are up in the city but all Wag-A-Paks are ethanol free.

10% Ethanol is not an issue anyway. We have been 10% for the past 15 years here in Canada and no ski's are being harmed by it at all.
People love to blame Ethanol when something goes wrong, but its just not the case.
Sea-Doo knows all about Ethanol fuels, so this is a non issue on a stock Ski.
