Became mandatory in Virginia as of May 1st, 2006. I just heard on the news last night that a new study is indicating that Ethanol is "worse" for the environment and public health? I know it's worse for my boat's fuel system....

Not all of VA has it.....some of the very rural areas do not run it.....I used to tow out of the way to fill with non-ethanol fuels.

TRUE. In my county they don't have it & one county over they do.

Do you know if the pumps around Anna have it? Their pumps arent marked for it.

Metropolitan area... more than likely.

I don't believe the counties around Lake Anna have Ethanol.

Off the top of my head:

Henrico: Yes
Hanover: Yes
Caroline: No
King William: No
King & Queen: No
Prince William: Yes

Pumps are to be CLEARLY marked "Contains 10% Ethanol" if its in the mix. Linster had a map showing all of the counties that have and don't have.
