FYI: List of Ethanol Free gas stations on PA

Hi all - hope your turkey smells as good as ours!  I know that I'm thankful for each 'normal' holiday that we get to spend together - don't forget to enjoy the good times!

Just came across a list of gas stations that sell ethanol-free gas:

If you're not aware, ethanol in gasoline will absorb water from the air, which will corrode metal parts, it will eat/dissolve plastic fuel lines, and leave gunk/varnish in the carb.  Storing ethanol/gas will make this worse.  There are additives to counteract this effect, but the best is to buy gas that does not contain any ethanol in the first place.  You don't want to hose your generator's engine when you need it most!

If you want to see what ethanol does to small motors not designed for it, check out some pics here:


Happy Thanksgiving!
