    Default Ethanol-free gasoline in NWA

    I'm looking for places in and around Northwest Arkansas selling ethanol-free gasoline. I can only remember three places right now.

    Hiwasse, AR - Phillips 66, Highway 72/279
    Tontitown, AR - Phillips 66, Highway 412
    West Siloam Springs, OK - Conoco, Highway 412

    You guys know any others?

    Supposedly this gas station is ethanol-free. It uses the older style pumps, but is fine once you get past the looks of it. Unfortunately, the highest grade available is 91.

    Jim, I get the gas for my car from the station across from Ozark Natural Foods in F-ville.

    As this is Sunoco gasoline (89, 94 and 102 IIRC) being sold and Sunoco is from my home region (far, far from the torch and pitchfork wielding farmers of the Midwest), I'm pretty sure there's no food in that fuel.

    I know, that place rocks. There used to be a Sunoco station in Rogers and one near Bethel Heights. The former is now a celphone store and the latter an EZ-Mart or some lameness.

    I'd like to have an inventory of ethanol-free stations around here. Not only for the mileage/performance issues, but the fuel longevity and water absorbency. Two of my cars are probably going to do a lot of sitting this winter. I put Stabil in my mowers. Iffy on the cars.

    The Shamrock in Greenland sells 93.

    The place across from Evelyn Hills has 104 for sure. Not sure about 102.

    Most Shell gas stations have no ethanol, but I've recently found out that that is dependent on the station. (Supposedly) Check for the stickers first!

    104 is just too dang expensive. Most places that sell 93 sell it for 91 price. I will have to hit up greeland.

    Thats right, they have a choice between 10% eth added 87 or just regular 87. Most take the 10% eth added because its 2-7 cents cheaper per gallon. I could be wrong, but I don't think 91 has any eth, or maybe thats just in my case. But, mid grade is usually a mix of 87 and 91, and then would have eth in it.
