There is a Marathon gas station in South Fort Myers on 41 that has 90 rec fuel (non-eth). It is about 1 mile south of Alico Rd at the intersection of San Carlos Blvd (I think) and 41 on the east side. I don't think their prices are much better than Marina fuel most of the time.

The bokeelia fish house has non ethanol gas. If I am not mistaken Pineland marina is ethanol free as well.

Thanks,

But... I don't have a iphone. I don't want one of them dad gum things. I also don't want to tow the boat any where near Fort Myers Beach and any left over snow turds..

The Pine Island suggestions are right in my back yard. But I was hoping to find a gas station and not a high priced marina. I'm a senior citizen just trying to make ends meet. Also looking for "reasonable" (an Oxymoron) rack storage as I am recovering from back surgery from two months ago.

Kind Regards,

I run regular E-10 without any problems but I keep it moving. Storing E-10 is where the big problems start.

It is a good excuse to use your boat more

I wish that I had my boat docked out in the back yard like you do your pontoon. The last time that I rode in my boat was the trail ride the day before my back surgery, twelve weeks ago.

Its setting in the locked storage lot here at Del Tura. Maybe after the Doc's visit on the 26th? If I can find rack storage that will take Cats at a reasonable price I'll get more use out of it.

This is my first trailer boat since 1970. I remembered how much work trailering is when I brought it home from the dealer. In my mind I am still 29. My body is quick to remind me that was 41 years ago (lol).

If I had a trailer boat I think I would make sure I pumped the tank dry and ran the last few miles in portable tanks that I could dump in my truck when I got home.
I had a trailer boat in Md and it was a real trailer queen that never ran right even on old style gas. Just about the time I got it running right I would park it another year and be back where I started. I promised myself I would never own a boat again if the dock was not behind my house.
