- Protect your engines by checking gas for alcohol/water contamination -
- Portable, reusable, inexpensive test kits with quik-check solution will instantly check presence and percent of ethanol in gasoline.
Helps to save $$$ in gas costs and prevent engine damage.
* We urge commenters to include details, data or specific examples in support of their need to purchase and use gasoline that does not contain ethanol alcohol.
Only stating "I want non-ethanol fuel", will not be nearly as effective to reclaim your right to buy E0, as when you state something like,
"I want ethanol-free fuel because my specific XYZ model engine requires it, and I've experienced these (specify negative effects) as a result of ethanol-free fuel being no longer available in my specific (Anywhere USA 01234) location...
We wish to thank you for taking the time to participate in this cause.

The data obtained from identifying, summarizing and presenting the specific problems/obstacles/inconvenience/expense
that E10/E15 fuel has caused to so many, we hope will have a huge impact on future decisions rendered by the EPA and others, who have been rallying for years to increase sales in the ethanol industry (greed/profit motives).
We strongly believe, in a free democratic society, both our government and ethanol companies do NOT have the right to force/mandate purchase of only gasoline that contains ethanol alcohol! Since no ban exists for E0 fuel type, it seems that the current non-availability of ethanol-free fuel in most areas of the U.S. goes against numerous Consumer Protection laws that are intended to protect fair trade.

We're convinced the EPA has lost sight of the real issues due to the relentless lobbying from ethanol producers; When they realize how damaging E10, and now E15 fuel, has been to so many engines, they'll soon come to the conclusion that offering E0 fuel (choice) at all public pumps is the only reasonable solution.

- Contact your local gas company or branded corporate office:
E.G. Shell, B/P, Mobil, Exxon, Hess, Quik-Trip, Marathon, Valero etc. and your local fuel distributors, fuel terminal and oil refineries. When they know there's a strong demand for gas without ethanol (E0) they often will make extra efforts to also offer this type of fuel; E0 is often now referred to as "recreational" fuel.
