Re: Non ethanol fuel sources
Here in NY we're able to get ethanol free at a lot Stewart's convenience stores. Unfortunately for me, Orange County and other counties towards NYC are in what is known as the "Metropolitan Commuter Transportation District,Ē or MCTD for short. The MCTD includes the counties of Manhattan, Bronx, Kings (Brooklyn), Queens, Richmond (Staten Island), Rockland, Nassau, Suffolk, Orange, Putnam, Dutchess and Westchester. That includes taxes and air quality rules and we don't gain much in the way of benefits. That zone also disallows sale of non ethanol fuel. But fortunately for me I'm just six miles from Sullivan county which isn't in the zone and there is a Stewart's there that does sell it. So Every month or so I go up and pick up 10 gallons at the pump and an ice cream cone or milkshake at the counter. Plus I occasionally run down the road another couple of miles and stop by and say hi to Ericjr16 and his dad. Use it in mowers, saws, trimmers and atv's. Any leftover at month's end goes in truck.
