    Question 93 Octane with NO Ethanol????

    My local gas dock on the water here says/claims that there 93 oct is ethanol FREE,$4.49... Is there such a thing? I've never seen it that high, 91 non ethanol/Conventional is the highest ive seen???? I called our local fuel distributor and they said they do sell it.but they didn't remember were thieve delivered it to before and I didn't feel confidante they knew either,


    what have you all seen?

    Rob,
    I heard 91 ethanol free is equal or better than 93 with ethanol, have you heard that one? Still not 93 without but it might work.
    I have purchased in Loto 93 ethanol free. It is about 1mile from state park boat ramp entrance. Little drive from Mississippi though.

    There is absolutely such a thing as 93 octane that is unblended. I work in the oil and gas industry and it can absolutely be bought it's just not often ordered.

    Several marinas at LOTO have 93 octane non ethanol fuel. They did have a harder time getting it this year though.

    Its common at norris lake, TN too. I found it a little odd at first since 99% of the boats are pontoons, ski boats and the like. Don't need the octane but ethanol free sure is nice. It was $4.59 last weekend.
