Thanks for your response

A couple of issues
To restate in my local blended Regular Octane 89 Unleaded 10% Ethanol is $2.49 with Premium Octane 92 costing more. Non Ethanol Regular is PIA to find or Locate ….even if someone thinks they have some insight on Ethanol Free in a nearby local to which I can GPS (Highly doubtful) locate.....NO FREAKING PROMISE that that AVAILABILITY has already been taken by others

FYI
Further most of any Ethanol Free Fuel is a considerable(40Miles plus) distance to hope to find and hoping that is actually in stock.

"Cost per mile" matters to the payer. But your vehicle chooses E0 over E10. That is why your engine gives you better MPG, runs smoother & may have a trace extra low rpm torque.

Two big milestones, one already accomplished & one very very near: 1) There are now 15,000+ sources for ethanol-free gasoline(E0) in the U.S. & Canada. 2) New York state has one source less than 1000 & should shortly be the first state to offer 1000 sources for E0. At least a handful of states offer well over 900 sources for E0. People continue to increase, who are learning that E0 is better than gasoline that has at least 10% diluting ethanol corruption (E10 or other percentages) added to our nation's fuel stocks. Presently, about 11,000 more grass-roots inspired sources are available for E0, vs. E85 sources, which languish, despite major backing by the federal gov't & "ethanol in gasoline companies".

I haven't tried E/0 in the last car I bought but a few years ago I tried it in another car for several tanks and didn't receive any noticeable increase in mileage on that one. Currently the station in town that I could get E/0 is usually about $ .40-$ .45 a gallon higher than E/10 at other locations. Even with a 20% increase in mileage I'd just about break even. Of course a 20% increase would save the number of stops for gas and look good on the fuel log. I'm old enough to remember when all gas was E/0.

New York just hit 1000 ethanol-free gasoline (E0) sources. If the political reasons for the wide price gap between E10 & E0 can be overcome, there is every reason to believe many states can have 1000+ (2000, 5000?) E0 sources.

Ten years ago, Texas had well less than 100 stations with E0. Presently, Texas has 285 E0 sources.
Tho no E0 stations are in Dallas or Fort Worth, there are individual E0 stations in Midlottian, Hudson Oaks, Weatherford, Forney, Rockwall, Denton, Cleburne, & Grandview. Go to pure-gas.org for addresses, phone numbers & details to those E0 sources.

I wonder if the local government require an oxygenate in those major cities for pollution concerns?

https://www.tceq.texas.gov/airqualit...h/rfgprog.html

Answered my own question. Yes they do. Guess I'm not sure if RFG has to contain 10%E or not, I'm guessing so since it's about the only oxygenate left since MTBE isn't allowed.

E0's best feature, IMHO, is that it doesn't corrode your equipment anywhere near as badly as E10 over months or years. With modern cars built for E10, it doesn't seem to matter too much if you daily them on E10 but if you store them they better have E0 in them.

I only use E0 for my small engines (unless I don't have the time to get it; the station's 6 vs 2 miles away for the nearest non E0 station) and even if it's been 6 - 8 months or a year after the last start up, the fuel still seems to be good enough to use.

I did try E0 in my cars but didn't find much of a F.E. improvement; YMMV. 3/4 of one MPG in my Explorer is not enough to make up for paying 70 more per gallon. Since I daily the car, it's not a big deal to use E10; the fuel won't degrade or attract too much water. I'll use Amsoil P.I. every so often, anyway, to clear out deposits on injectors.
