Question 87 octane Ethanol free gas in North York ?



Are there any stations in North York area that carry 87 grade ethanol free gas ?
I can only find ethanol free 91 grade gas at some shell and husky stations.

I don't think you will find ethanol free gas in the US. I"m almost certain every state has mandated it have at least 5% ethanol content.

And please tell me you're not looking for ethanol free gas because it "gets worse mileage"

You are right. So far on non ethanol 91 octane, I got 185km and my gas guage needle barely moved.

I usually get 660km+ highway driving per 40 litres of fuel, and 480km+ city driving per 40 litres of fuel. My civic gas tank is 44L.

you run 91?
why? they run on 87...or is it purely for the no ethanol?

cost vs savings?

My old SiR needed 91...and there was a good 50 km extra per tank compared to other ethanol enhanced 91's.
City was around 450-510km depending
Highway was 525-570 depending
40-44L

I miss being able to beat on it and have it return 7.xxL/100km. Such an fun/great car to drive.

I tried 91 recently because it has no ethanol in it. I usually use 87.

Btw, you should be getting 650km+ per tank highway driving.
I took a trip to Kingston last year and thats what I got.
