TODAY IS LAST DAY FOR COMMENTS.

www.pure-gas.org is link. There is even iPhone app for ethanol free fuel.

Do we need summer and winter gas? Will my lawnmower hate me if I use winter gas?

I don't get it.

How can 10% ethanol have 0.27 gallons of ethanol in a gallon of gas?

I stand corrected. No wonder it did not make sense. My figure had three times too much corn.

Well, ethanol still doesn't store well in winter and may be hard on older carbs until everything gets updated.
Hoses, etc.

Summer gas; winter gas. Will my lawnmower hate me if I use winter gas?
