In Indiana most but not all gas is still just pure gas, when going east from here to visit my son in New Hampshire almost all stations have at least 10% ethanol some at the 15% level. It used to be that they had to post that on the pumps but a few years ago the gummit decided that it wasn't necessary to post that info. One of the local guy's here in new carlilse that owns the gas station there (good honest guy) started posting on his pumps that it contains 10% and I asked him about it and he told me about the government removing that requirement but he knew some people don't really want ethanol in some of their vehicles and they deserved to know. Honest man with integrity is all I can say.
I notice a drop in Mpg once the tank has gasohol in it, usually 1-3 mpg. So be aware that you may be using 10-15% w/o being aware, you need to ask the owner or supplier, one of our countries better kept secrets, I smell a conspiracy,, or maybe it's just the dog.
A little gasohol every now and again isn't a bad thing, think carb/injector cleaning and water removal from the fuel system and most newer vehicles use Viton rubber through out so alcohol doesn't bother it. I just don't want to use it all the time but probably am.
