Since I just got a 2 smoke, I used this website to locate some real gas.

http://pure-gas.org/index.jsp?stateprov=OR


So I stopped here and got gas @ 3.59/gal:

Salem UNBRANDED 91 Quality Gas 2385 Salem Dallas Hwy NW N44.93149 W123.07692 map details

After filling my jug, the owner asked how I found out about the station. He remarked on the infrequent sales of the gas. Consider that he has dedicated a portion of his storage capacity to supply this market and he may not be getting a good return on his investment. We should support stations that give us a choice of fuel.

It seems that few people are aware of the availability of real gas. Oregon just passed a law allowing it early this year.

Just a plug in case you don't want to run your bike on gasahol and water--- alcohol absorbs H2O which could seriously affect the bearings in a 2 smoke.

Every time I am Washington I bring gas cans. And I get weird looks

My bikes run so much better on real gas.

10% alcohol is cool in till it starts eats any thing rubber in your carb or if our bike is sitting for a long time.

I am surprised that I have no lost a gas tank yet...

Thanks Joe for the Info on this side

We had a real good time. We caught some of everything we went for; Salmon (King, Silver, and Pink), Halibut (lots of that), Yellow Eye (red snapper), Sea Bass, Ling Cod, and some King Crab. A friend brought in a the crab and what a treat that was. :P

There were whales all around us everywhere and that was cool. Even had to dodge some while traveling along in the boat.

I will tell you more about it at the picnic and will have pictures.
