Premium Ethanol Free in Richland now
New sign at the Rocket Mart in Richland (Conoco behind the Albertson's in central Richland) on 780 Stevens Drive claims to have ethanol free on pumps 7 & 8. This is not on PureGas.org yet so the basis for this is simply the sign on the pumps and per the station attendant.

Am aware that the Conoco self serve in north Richland (across from the old 1171 Hanford Building that has the Livingston Rail Repair) has regular ethanol free (confirmed with PureGas.org) but pump #1 barely pumps out gas. So I use pump #2 but it limits out at $50. So if you are filling up your vehicle just run your debit/credit card again and you can keep filling past $50.

I don't know if the ethanol is as bad as everyone says but I think the ethics of turning food into fuel and in the process burning more fossil fuel than is created is simply nuts. So that is my way to protest again the corn welfare when we could buy sugar cane ethanol from Brazil at much less cost to the consumer.

End of Novenber the 'Pacific Pride' Stations owened by 'Connell Oil'.
Are supposed to offer Non Ethanol 92 Octane at their TriCities locations.
They use a Card system. But, its EZ to apply. And their location directory for ALL of Pac-Prides stations is BIG.

The Rosauer's was actually the building that Tim Bush used as his dealership, then the library was there temporarily during the remodel of the other one. I used to shop at the Rosauer's back in the day.
