It's going to be marked as 'E85' on the pump. It's not that common - I've probably seen one gas station in Vegas that sold it, plus up here in Northern NV I know of one or two stations that sell it - and you'll notice that it's cheaper than regular gas usually. Plus the pumps usually carry large warning stickers, too. It's a blend of up to 85% Ethanol with ...

Non-ethanol fuel is supposedly available in nearly all of the USA, just hard to find. There are certain airplane engines that are certified to use automobile grade gasoline as long as it does not contain any ethanol. I hear it's getting harder for them to find the appropriate fuel these days, but that they are still able to get it. Try asking around at ...
