Wow . Liberty sells Ethanol free regular gas $ 2.35/ gal. in Winchester Virginia. I've seen Ethanol free premium gas sold in Derby line Vt, but can't remember how much. Ethanol free gas is sold at boat docks and private airports as well.

The highest octane gas is frequently ethanol free in Southern Wisconsin but you have to check the pump for each grade to make sure. That equates to $3.00 or so but gets rid of the ethanol.

Out here, the local Grange sells gasoline without ethanol. That seems ironic since the grange is focused on serving agricultural folk, but we suspect it's because sometimes that gas sits around in farm equipment between uses and ethanol in that gas would only bring sadness for the reasons you mentioned. So, for the large gasoline-powered generator we leave at home (too big and noisy for camping) and use when storms knock out power, we also add "Sea Foam" stabilizer to the Grange-sold ethanol-free-gasoline. Sea Foam is a product designed for marine use to help keep that ethanol-free gasoline fresh. There are, of course, other gasoline stabilizers out there, and they probably work fine too.
Rocinate,

Thanks for your post(s).

I started this thread with a question regarding what type of gas can I should get to support my never been used Honda EU2000i. Fortunately, I was not in a rush and had the time to consider other options - thank you Air Forum.

The more I considered the topic, the concept of propane just made more and more sense to me. That said, I do harbor some concerns regarding the flexibility that a gas option would provide if the propane supply runs out. Like all other factors, I will just need to be doubly diligent with the levels of my propane tanks.

Perhaps we will see each other on the road - my brother lives in Silverdale, WA.

Thanks again. Travel safe. Dennis
