There is also this site, user-run, listing stations across the nation. So, if you're going outside the state, another resource.

I haven't driven by there in a couple of weeks, but I do know at one point they had a sign out front that said non-ethanol premium gas available. Give them a call and see if they still have it.

Olsen's has non ethanol. Also Vancouver Oil Company 1503 NE 136th St, Vancouver Wa.

Also, write to the liberal idiots in Salem and Washington and tell them you don't want to go to 15% gasohol. My bikes don't like 10%. I can't imagine what they are going to run like on 15%.

Keep an eye out for Shell stations. Some of them carry a RED colored pump. RED pumps are Ethanol free. At least all the ones I've filled up from have been Ethanol free.

So I read somewhere that the main problem with ethanol gasoline is that it can damage engines when they are not being used, when it's just sitting there. Seriously sitting, like boats all winter. Is that the case? Then I don't wanna worry about this because my bike gets used all the time.

And if that's not the case then why aren't there more gas stations with ethanol free gas? Seems like it should be a choice.

Ugh, still waiting for an electric superbike ...

Disclaimer: All i am saying here is based on my experience with ethanol gasoline and compared to non-ethanol mixed gas.

1. When ethanol gas sits in my bikes with carburetors for a long time (1 month) it clogs the jets with a varnish and can seize the slides. (my bikes then dont idle and wont rev)
Then i have to take my carbs apart and clean them with solvent and air compressor.

(always drain carbs or use ethanol treatment if your going to leave you bike sitting for a while to avoid this)

With non ethanol gas i can leave gas in carbs for 3 months (havent tried for longer) and my bike still runs fine first time

also it eats hoses and rubber worse then normal gasoline. And works as a solvent in my tank and my filters last not nearly as long (maybe the gas is just dirtier) and ethanol's combustion creates more water then octane and rusts things sooner.

2. Boats have a horrible time with ethanol (it EATS fiberglass tanks for breakfast) and thats why Sta-bil ethanol treatment is so popular.

3. It cost more for gas stations to carry and there inst that big of a demand and cars are not effected because their injectors are so much larger then motorcycles.


In my opinion; ethanol is horrible. I really am also looking forward to Electric superbikes. ethanol is a horrible fuel in that it is less energy dense and more poluting and we really shouldnt be growing that much corn in the first place. It supports mono-culture. Blah blah blah bad supply side supported economics. blah blah blah

Ethanol contains a percentage of water, which over storage corrodes injectors, tank and other parts. But you ride year round like I do, so it's not as big of a concern.


I get better mileage with the non-ethanol fuel, so if I can, I will.

I do too, so that's why I wasn't so concerned.
I get better mileage with regular than premium but then that's not per the manufacturer's recommendations.

Anyone has seen any recommendations regarding non-ethanol gasoline for bikes?

You can store your bike for a long time with ethanol (alcohol oxygenated) fuels if you *fill the tank up*. The less airspace, the less atmospheric water vapor the fuel can absorb. THIS is why you should drain your carbs, because of the airspace in the float bowls, not because of the fuel itself. Of course it's better to add some Sea-Foam or Sta-bil but it's not a requirement.

Ethanol (alcohol) fuel doesn't cause your filters to get clogged all by itself. It scrubs the crap out of your tank and puts it in suspension. Of course it also does this to the storage tanks that its kept in.

I just did the chemistry calculations for the energy produced by ethanol vs octane

ethanol is about 29.8 kJ/gram combusted

octane is about 44.2 kJ/gram combusted

but ethanol is denser and because fuel efficiency for liquids is based on volumetric rates not mass rates it comes out to

ethanol is 23.5 kJ/mL

octane is about 31.2 kJ/mL
that is 75% the fuel density

so that 15% ethanol is 25% less fuel rich then pure gasoline.

so bottom line is that 15% ethanol fuel is 96% as energy rich as 100% gasoline by volume


(i used enthalpy, density and molar mass figures from Wikipedia. If anyone wants to verify this, go ahead, but im pretty damn sure its right.)

If you have a power commander on the bike and optimize the bike for each fuel, you will feel and measure a huge difference between ethanol and non-ethanol. More power and smoother response with non ethanol.

Stabil ethanol treatment just adds anti corrosion ingredients. Startron ethanol treatment seems to work better. (but don't use too much or the bike will be hard to start)
