I run non ethanol premium. Love it. Better mileage and isn't hard on the motor or components at all.

In my carb atvs I run sunoco 110 leaded, they seem to run like garbage with pump gas that is over 2-3 weeks old. The 110 has a claimed 2 year shelf life. Also run 110 in the chainsaw, string trimmer, pressure washer, and wood chipper.

In my fuel injected atv I use pump premium just don't fill it up until the day that I am going to ride so at least part of the tank is fresh.

I drive past a gas station on my 85 mile one way drive to work that sell ethanol free I may start to pick up some of that to use.

What kind of shelf life are you guys getting with the ethanol free.

I run non ethanoll in mine. Can't say it runs better or gets better mileage since both of those things are very subjective but I can tell you that I KNOW its better for the engine so I do it.

You can ask almost any mechanic about non ethenol and they will tell you it's the best for your car bike or any thing else .ethenol fuels are only good for grain farmers and they prolly don't use it lol.

I sell it and sell a ton of it.

I forgot to add that I run it in my vehicles as well. I love how much more mileage I get and I can tell they run smoother. Its 94 octane with all of the BP Invigorate additives so I know the motors love it.

See Tolliver, I told you if you sold it we would come!

For all those reading this go to http://pure-gas.org/ and you can find stations near you or hopefully near you that sell it.

Use it (mid-grade) in my boat. Sutton Marina will sell it to you by the can. Use premium Exxon in the RZR and Kroger fuels in everything else.

There is nowhere near my house that sells ethanol free gas, so that option is pretty much out for me. All I know is that I run 89 in everything I own and get it wherever I'm at when I need gas. Jeep spark knocks like hell with 87 ethanol in it and it sounds like a diesel on a hill, 89 and it is quiet and runs great. Taco is 91 or higher recommended, and I get the best milege with 89 so that's what I have ran in it for 164k miles. Throttle felt inconsistent on the rzr, rhino 450 no matter what ethanol gas I ran. New rhino was about the same until James put the cam in it with a fuel tunner. His tune made my rhino the smoothest most consistent running thing I own.

89 in everything, ethanol or not. Here in the sticks you just hope you get gas that is not full of dirt and water because they are to cheap to change their filters like they are supposed to.

I get 5 or 10 gallons of AV Gas from the local small airport. We use it in everything. It is usually about 109 to 110 octane. If you have a small airport nearby go get you some. Its about $5.20 a gallon here.

Not sure about the ratio but supposedly AVgas will clog cat convertors on cars as it is 100LL (low lead). We use it in race cars now instead of CAM 2 and in some cases mixed it half and half with 93octane gas to save $ on race fuel. A lot of bracket racers are doing this in my area now. It works well. I use AVgas straight in all my small engines. I have also used Toluene mixed with Cam 2 but had better luck with it straight in muscle cars.

Well, it's not like it sits in your tank for very long.....lol. That is ultimately the problem. If it sits over a month, it can start to separate, then you're screwed.

I run non-ethanol. I pay well over $4 a gallon, but I know it won't separate. I have had carb/timing issues prior (in the Rhino and Grizzly) to running the non-ethanol. I won't run it again. I still use fuel stabilizer for additional insurance.

If y'all are getting better mileage out of non-ethanol, I'd hate to see what I got in my XP with ethanonl laced fuel because my fuel economy is horrible in it.

Im running my non ethanol 93 BP. Were selling it today for 3.69 a gallon and we sell a ton of it. My rzr runs all day on a tank. I still carry a can just in case though. I just like it too because the alcohol is not as harsh on the fuel pump and injectors as well. My Raptor LOVES it. Runs awesome. Its the only gas I buy. I sell E10 like everyone else and only buy non ethanol for all gas motors.

I just bought 10 gallons of non-ethanol supreme for $4.18 a gallon in W-S. Better than the repair bill at least.
