Non Ethanol Gasoline – The Great Debate
Benefits of Using Non-Ethanol Gasoline in Gresham, Hillsboro & Portland, Oregon (OR)
Most all gasoline sold in the Portland metro area contains 10% Ethanol and it is getting harder and harder to find places to purchase non-ethanol gasoline. What really are the benefits of using non-ethanol gasoline anyhow?
There are many articles written on whether the use of non-ethanol gasoline is better for all fuel engines. Some studies will show how it is better for the engine and others will talk to better performance, both in engine performance and increased mpg. We will leave those articles alone and focus on what’s important. If you are looking for non-ethanol gasoline, we have you covered – in regular 87 octane and 92 octane premium.
When You Really Do Need To Use Non-Ethanol
Check and stick with your manufacturers recommendations. You probably already know that ethanol has been known to cause damage in smaller gasoline powered engines.
Extend the Life of Your Toys and Tools and Make them Happy
While fuel may perform well in today’s vehicles, ethanol may damage your Off-Road toys, boats, chainsaws, lawnmowers and anything else with a small gas powered engine. Gasoline with 10% ethanol also has a much shorter shelf life than ethanol free gasoline.
