Logistically, are current facilities capable of offering ethanol-free or will they need additional tanks?

Certainly hope that's the case with all the other merchants! Tank regulations are a bear...

There are several stations along US19 in the Hudson area that offer non-ethanol.

Also found a convenience store on the water in Hernando Beach that offered it. When they remodeled, the put a fuel dock in outside....with diesel and non-ethanol!

.75 more per gallon makes Gas Shoc a better way to go.

You're getting 100% gas....not 85-90%. There is a cost for them to provide the convenience to you, it's still alot less cheaper than the ethanol free choices on the water. If you don't like it, don't buy it!!!!

Not trying to be Daryl Downer but isn't ethanol a Federal mandate enforced by EPA through the Renewable Fuel Standards Act? I believe a federal mandate would trump any state mandates. Think they were duplicative?

Dunno, I'm just a dumb citizen, who doesn't know any better. So the Gubmen forces me to buy something I don't want. Thank you sir may I have another.

Nice!!! I'll be watching my local stations to see if they start dumping ethanol. I have not put ethanol in my boat in for years because the dockside fuel delivery services understand that boaters don't want this garbage.

I sure wouldn't mind being able to eliminate ethanol in my cars as well.

Finally someone is looking out for the consumer and not the lobbyists.

I have one station in my area that offers it by land and he gigs you on the price. He is .50 more than any of the other non-eth stations...but he knows he is the only one around close. Hope this changes things! Go Gov Scott!

Since it just passed you will see most stations switching to attract customers and the price will be back to normal
