    Fifteen(+?) years ago, there were only about 2000 to 4000 E0 sources, yet some stations were selling E0 for only pennies to 10cents more per gallon. Now that there are nearly 15,000 E0 sources, the price gap between E0 & E10, even at "well" priced E0 stations is wide.

    Ah..... advanced tech used to make ethanol, that when only 10% of it is blended & diluted into gasoline, causes MPG to collapse to 8% to 5% BELOW that of standard 87 octane gasoline(E0). Advanced tech, to ya.:oops:

    Because the sellers can charge that much more, and people still buy it. Being able to charge more for E0 is why more stations have bothered to make the investment to carry it.

    Nah! You don't talk to E0 sellers. I've talked to many E0 sellers. They truly believe in E0 (as all sellers should). E0 sellers are proud of the E0 they sell..... & sell it DESPITE E0 not making a pile of cash for them.
