Ethanol free gas

Postby KTMARCHER » Mon Sep 06, 2010 8:42 am

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.

Nice. I went ahead and posted both stations in Coos Bay that I know sell non-ethanol.

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.

Go here and add the stations that you have found that supply real gas.

Too bad there is not some in Goldendale or Biggs,,,, along the way to Eddieville or Stravation Ridge;) I will be driving to Eddieville Saturday and will be buying some gas for the bike somewhere, non-ethanol would be nice.
