    Just an FYI for everyone around the capital district in NY. There is a chain of locally owned stations selling 91 octane, ethanol free gasoline. Look for a 'Pit Stop' station. Also, their 87 octane comes out of the pump treated with the additives to combat the ethanol issues.

    There is a pretty good number of stations, so you should be able to find one with out too much inconvenience. I lucked out and have two to choose from within 5 minutes of my shop. Prices are competitive.

    There are always some gas stations, and a few outdoor power equip stores that will sell Ethanol-free gas called "Recreation Fuel". The down-side is that it is more expensive.
