Default Looking for ethanol free fuel - far west end of erie

Up until last year my marina claimed they were selling pure gas. Last season they started selling ethanol laced fuel. To make it worse, in Michigan there is no requirement to label the pumps so you don't even know what your getting. If I'm going to be paying north of $5/gallon this summer for boat fuel, I want pure gas.

I'm looking for marinas in the far west end of Erie that are selling the real deal 100% gasoline. Any of you OH guys getting real gas close to the MI border?

Here's a list for Michigan: http://pure-gas.org/index.jsp?stateprov=MI

You can click on the links for a map and for other states.

Humbug Marina in Gibraltar, MI. (Referenced on Skipper's list) They are right at the south end of the Detroit River where it opens up to Lake Erie. I keep my boat there.

I am not down at the far west end any more but if you ever get by the islands I always get my fuel @ Channel Grove Marina on East Harbor.

You may want to try Meinke's West, the last time I checked they had ethanol free fuel at their pumps nearest to the lake. I filled up my small boat tank last fall and they told me they are ethanol free.

Lakevue Marina in Marblehead

However, they do not take plastic.

Looks like Trouts from TheSkippers link will work, and very close to home. Thanks everyone.
