    Try a marina or boat supply

    If you have any marinas or boat supply places, they probably have alcohol free gas. Most of the stations around the water have a pump with it in our area. You could also try the local airport. FG19 could tell you more about the airport fuel situation. I don't know if they will sell 5 or 10 gallons at a time, I know marinas do.

    That's all I have used for years now with fantastic results. But I am lucky if I use a quart a year.

    I could have sworn your post before this said ALCOHOL free fuel - was waiting with anticipation to the responses.

    Ethanol is the same alcohol as in adult beverages. Industrial just has some impurities you donít want to drink.

    Some people don't proof read before posting and then there are those that don't catch their mistakes even when they proof or is that 80proof. Hmmm better read that JD BLACK label again

    TREEFARMER Thanks for the tip about the marina and airport I'll have to check them out

    Told my wife about ethanol / Alcohol blooper and she said I should have blamed it on spellcheck. She is soon much smarter than me

    I've got a jug of ethanol without denaturant in the garage.
    It occasionally comes out to satisfy curiosity of those who've never tried it. Yes, it's OK to drink. But it is obvious that no effort is put into making it palettable. About a quarter ounce shot is enough to make you realize that if that is all that is left, you should just call it a night and quit drinking.

    I had the nerve to criticize a former Denver Donkey for being in trouble with the law on a local TV station's YouBoob channel, and I just ignore the replies written in Ebonics.
    I have more ideas than ambition.

    Some of us donít always have the time to proof read. Not all of us went to higher the higher schools, some may not even have finished high school. Then thereís that thing that puts words in . Sometimes changes them automatically and we donít catch it.
    I can fab and repair most things. Spelling and grammar skills are poor at best. I try to help folks that have to ask how to do very basic things like change oil. If they canít put up with my poor righting, well they can pay some to fix there **** then
