    All I know is that in Mexico (ethanol free gas) my bike runs better and gets about 30 more miles per tank. :nod

    Well, I guess we are fortunate due to the fact that we have a gas station that sells pure gas. It's a little higher in price but they sell the stew out of the stuff. Mainly to boaters, motorcyclists, etc. my bike is e10 friendly but I still use the pure stuff from time to time.

    +1 Great App! I have this app and used it to get 100% gasoline to top my bikes off for the winter and I will start keeping at least 5 gal in the garage for the bikes going forward.

    I've used them online but did not know about the app. Thanks. My V10 van gets 14mpg on pure gas and 11-12 on ethanol.
    If more of us buy it then more places will sell it.

    I go places where there is no cell coverage. Forget the wi-fi. The only current bush is on my WR. I wanted something PRACTICAL. With a small tank on a light bike the additional power and additional 10% MPG (an extra 14 miles) is essential in truly remote locales (think Magruder Corridor, stretches in BC, or Alaska which is all non-ethanol , etc).

    Funny how ones compulsive behaviors blossom in the depths of winter...

    I downloaded (several steps) and 'GPSBabled' the N. America Pure-Gas.org map. IT IS NON_COMMERCIAL USE ONLY. I trimmed it down to a .gpx for Western N. America since that's where I live. I keep it on my GPS so I have it where I need it.

    Here is a link if you want to make use of it. It lives publicly shared in my Google Docs. PLEASE contribute updates (including current confirmations) to pure-gas.org.

    Once you open the link just download yourself a copy of the .gpx and have at it as you see fit. It should be about 151KB, MIME type text/xml. File name is ClearGas-PureGasWesternN_Amer.gpx

    Happy trails and see ya in the out back -
