Default Marina Gas Price Listings Fl Keys

Nothing wrong with a marina charging a little more for fuel, but today when the on road price was $2.39 and the marina price was $3.80 and that did not even include a kiss!

Not sure how we could do it, but if any of you Keys guys might post a weekly or whenever you buy msg regarding Marina fuel Prices around here, we might be able to save a liittle.
11-6 Old Wooden Bridge Marina $3.80 (all of last year they were only about 40 cents higher than road prices)

On the fuel to your dock delivery, you have to check the price daily. Make sure you get price on delivery day. The delivery guys change the price daily. Over the summer I saw daily swings of 15 and 20 cents per gallon. It was nuts. I have had Admiral deliver and they are pretty good. Haven't checked price lately, but that Costa price sounds great compared to this summer.

I paid $3.13 for 89 this morning at the KOA on Sugarloaf Key. It is NOT E10.

Venture Out on Cudjoe Key is the same price as the street but I think it is 87 and not sure if MTB or E10.

Fuel at Chervon Island on Summerland Key is E10 same price as the street but they only sell 93.

Some marinas here must think people are pretty stupid not to notice their markup. I won't name them here but you know who I am talking about.

The marinas could order free E10 gas but there is a small up charge. Lots of people were complaining about E10. Keystone Pointe Marina the price for regular was $3.30 and it was Ethanol free gas.

Mckenzie (Chevron) delivers to your boat in the Keys. Depending on where you are located in the Keys depends what day they will deliver. Their fuel usually averages (roughly) .70 cents above street prices. Also their marine/boat fuel is NOT E10.

I cannot believe that it is not E-10 every where, I just ask the fleet manager of the local sheriffs department who buys gas etc. and he said that he could not buy any gas with out ethanol in it.
Maybe a special Keys thing or close enough to a gas barge, or some one is not telling the truth. Florida law said that all gas must contain ethanol as of a date around July 08.

I don't know of any stations on the street that sell non E10. However many marinas still do.

Today Chervon Island's pump on the water on Summerland Key was $2.64 for 91 octane E10.

I just took a fuel delivery today, $3.20 a gallon. The driver advised that an agreement with the State of Florida was made making aviation and marine fuels ethynol exempt. I do not know if this is only a Chevron thing or if other distributors are involved or what, or if other states are involved. Chevron (Texaco) out of Port Everglades will be distributing regular (real) gas to marina's or to your boat. Soon, very soon, the only octane for real gas will be 91 octane instead of the 87 I received today, they will do away with all lower octanes and only deliver 91 to the marina's and to your boat. The catch of course is it will cost more than street pump gas. Chevron/Texaco marina's have a choice of what they wish to sell. I guess they had to increase the octane for the newer 4 stroke engines that require it, wave of the future. I will hold out for real gas as long as I can, even if it is 91 octane.

Lazydawg, I was getting fuel from Big Pine Fishing Lodge over the summer, they were a few cents cheaper then Tom Thumb on the road. It was worth running from Little Torch. Not sure if still like that ....but worth checking it out.

I think the high prices are at the facilities with the slowest turnover. They haven't sold the gas they purchased at the higher price yet ergo the higher price to the consumer.

I take four 5 gallon containers to the Shell Station in Tavernier and put it in myself. Its a little inconvenient but it saves enough to be able to go out. The Hess station in Key Largo has 87 for $201 this morning (Sunday) By the way Saturday was a beautiful day on the reef with lots of action before the front came thru.

Its always been more at a marina why should it chance now. I for one say the Ma and Pa Marinas need some support they could sell the high price real estate to a developer and who would rack your boat and repair it....

A-1
Mom and Pop marina support no problem, priced a bit higher, as I said no issue.
BUT 1 partial fill
200 gallons @ $1.40 = $280.00 extra profit, I pump it, I'm legally responsible for a spill, COME ON I'd bet you'd even like that margin.
