Like saying "ethanol free" means we don't charge extra for it, same price as the regular (which we don't have).

It has made me wonder more than once if some folks, this isn't the case.
Because you have to know, it likely wouldn't hurt sales.
Hell the only thing it's bad for is our economy.

In my area the only place to get it would be at the airport and I somehow don't think they would sell it to me but even if they would I'm not even bothering.
I'm not exactly sure how the stations get the ethanol free gas, but I have a friend that works for the wholesale gas/oil dealer that provides fuel for several local stations. He's actually the one that told me a couple of other stations in towns carried ethanol free gas, besides the one station that is always advertising and charging a higher price for theirs.

That said, the fuel is still my primary suspect in getting my mower back going. It could be the coils, but I'm really leaning towards trash in shut off valve or the carb.
