Default Which Gas Station Uses The Least Amount of Ethanol?

Like the title says,

I've noticed waaaaaaay worse MPG on my car since the addition of ethanol to gas stations. I know it can't be avoided, but any idea who adds the least?

most ethanol content is regulated by region not necessarily by the distributor.

Well I work at Murphy USA here in Oklahoma. We use "UP TO 10%" ehtanol, it varys in shipments. The gas comes pre mixed with the ethanol, and is shipped to many other stations than just murphys. Alot of times our gas supplier runs out of ethanol gas and gives us striaght 100% PETROL! So, what I am saying is, no station has a set percent of ethenol in their gas. Sometimes there is less and sometimes it has the whole 10%, its just what ever the suppliers puts in the trucks to take to the stations.

I cant find any! It seems they all contain the 10% E. I wish I knew the real story behind this. I know all the fuel economy on new cars went down significantly in the last couple years. Case & point, compare the 06 civic mpg to the 09 civic mpg. We are all suffering because we are getting less mpg's. I have noticed at least 2 mpg city loss & feel its because of the E additive.

I have heard it can be higher than 10% also, just depends on the shipment or who mixed it. Atleast here premium doesnt contain it yet, thank god. that stuffs junk.

Amoco and Mobil dont use ethanol here in Wisconsin. the highest ethanol content ive seen is "up to 10%".

btw ethanol has an octane rating of about 113 and has been proven to keep an engine cleaner, burn with less emission and the downside...slightly worse fuel economy. so why would anyone in a performance vehicle forum be opposed to higher octane and a cleaner engine.

How exactly does it clean the engine better? Your cylinders require more of this 10% crap in order to operate optimally. The problem is ethonols productivity. It doesnt equate to pure gasoline. Therefore, it poses a concern when you see a mpg drop with just 10% added in.
