Ethanol-Free Gasoline

Nowadays it's hard to find Ethanol-Free Gasoline

Here's a Link to find stations that sell "Ethanol-Free Gasoline" in the U.S. and Canada : !

Other than maybe slightly better MPG, why do you care if there's ethanol in the gas?

I wish GM would've made the Camaro a FlexFuel vehicle and here's why. E-85 is 105 octane, BUT the cooling effect that alcohol has on the cylinders makes it act more like 110-115 octane [since the EPA is loose on the E-85 rules, you can't be sure if you're only getting 15% gas, or actually more]. Can you imagine the timing and/or boost you could run on 110+ octane versus 91 (all we normally get here)? I run in it in my Grand National. I'd much rather pay $2.29/gal versus ~$14/gal for 116 octance! Not to mention alcohol doesn't hurt the emissions systems like leaded racing fuel does.

Hope this helps give you the other perspective.

I'm guessing your ATV is a 4-stroke like my Raptor was. [I have no idea how E-85 would work in a 2-stroke]. Assuming you'd rejet your carb to ~35% larger jet, I would think you could run E-85 a-ok.

I was about to thank you until I checked the link and noticed they left out the entire state of California.

Ethanol is corrosive to aluminum. I don't like putting even 10% of it in my aluminum block engine.
