    Ethanol Free fuel

    In case you care to know or didn't know, these are official responses from Shell, Ultramar and Petro Canada


    Shell Response: Shell V-Power Premium (91 Octane) is Ethanol Free across Canada.
    Ultramar Response: Ultramar does not add any ethanol to the "supreme" gasoline throughout it's network of stations from Ontario to Labrador.
    Petro Canada Response: All grades of fuel sold at Petro-Canada contain up to 10% ethanol.
    Canadian Tire Response: there is no ethanol in premium fuel.
    Esso Response : Our premium unleaded gasoline does not contain ethanol.

    You Canadian folk are lucky. Stateside it's hard to find, In NJ there is none. Come winter time I resort to 100LL aviation fuel which is also hard to get. New Jersey has a law that it's not allowed to be pumped into gas cans. With ethanol fuel I don't let it sit longer then 20-30 days before I pump it out and put fresh gas in wether its treated or not.

    But we pay over a dollar more per gallon . ~$3.15 in NJ, ~$4.7 where I live and this is for regular gas

    Update
    At any Petro-Canada sites where there is no 94 the supreme blend(91) is ethanol free. At the sites where 94 is available all blends contain ethanol

    Can you provide some verification of that statement?

    What is Petro-Canada (now owned by Sunoco) doing differently at these '94 octane available' stations?

    Hmmm,
    Does Ultra 94 contain ethanol? Does Petro-Canada still offer an ethanol-free gasoline?
    Ultra 94 contains ethanol. Due to the fact that various fuel grades are blended at the point of sale, most grades of Petro-Canada fuel may now contain up to 10% ethanol. This represents a change from the previous state, where premium fuel was ethanol-free at Petro-Canada.

    This comes from a Suncor representative that certifies blends it was half hour phone conversation. Because 94 must contain ethanol and the mix happens at the point of sale all blends will have ethanol at the sites with no 94 they have the ability to provide 91 ethanol free

    So we are down to only these sources for ethanol-free premium grade gasoline in southern Ontario, it seems.

    Ontario
    Shell V-Power 91
    Costco 91
    Canadian Tire 91
    Esso 91
    Ultramar 91

    And 91 octane at Petro-Canada stations that do not offer 94 octane.
    If 94 octane is available then all gasoline grades at that Petro-Canada location have ethanol.
