I went to the local shop advertising no-e gas and topped off. It was about 40 cents a gallon more, which is more than 10 percent by a few cents... so, I think it loses money. Since these cars (flex fuel) are not going to be hurt any by the 10 percent e content at the big stations, I'm not going to bother with the "pure gas" anymore. Just my own take on it.

EDIT: No-ethanol 91 octane about 40 cents/gallon more than 10 percent ethanol 93 octane. Most stations around here have 87, 89, and 93. This station had no-ethanol 87, 89, and 91.
