Well, I found Ethanol Free Gas...

...At a shop that sells power equipment.
Would I still need to add stabilizer?

Yes, gasoline without ethanol does get stale too. It can cause varnish deposits.

I don't think it is a bad as the ethanol blends on drawing moisture though.

As long as it's dry & above 35*.
Invariably, every Winter I get anywhere from 1-3 weeks of either Arctic cold, copious snow or both.

Yup, that's why my bike is running so good i reckon, i ride it 4-5 times a week, which incidentally costs a bit. I'm filling up the tank close to every other day. it adds up per month... yeah like $150.

But my sanity is worth it

If you don't mind me asking, how much is it per gallon?


I'd run into an old friend who happened to work at that shop.
He told me they sell it in 2 or 5 gallon containers, He said it was expensive.

I plan on going there tomorrow to see what's what.

We're nearly paying that for the ethanol crap. The 93 un-ethanol here usually runs 40 to 50 cents more per gal.
