Every station I see here in illinois has the 10% ethanol blemd too. i wish we had a station selling pure fuel. Stations gotta get that $ for the blend in.

The blending isnt the gas stations fault or the gas company. It's Required by the state.

Yes, gas companies are thinning down the gasoline, but it's with 10% methanol not water.

Pisses me off to, because I'm still paying the same amount as if it were 100% gasoline.

I only buy from hess because they dont import any barrels of oil..its all US oil.


But if you think you have water in your gas..cant you put alcohol in it? because you can burt alcohol and it mixes with water
