Search PeteLandrysRealGas.com for Ethanol Free Gas

'cdugas15', I actually have over 950 ethanol free gas stations on my website's list. You can search the list by Parish or City to find a station in the area you're looking for. The website is PeteLandrysRealGas.com I just checked and my list has 2 stations in Broussard, 2 in Youngsville and 5 in Lafayette.
The station in Carencro that is mentioned by another poster is 'C & M Food Mart' at 700 Veterans Drive with phone 337-896-8483.
In early June, I had 1,022 stations on the list. Then on June 21st, Marathon Oil decided to stop selling ethanol free gas from their Garyville Refinery. They were the largest supplier of ethanol free gas to south and particularly north Louisiana. I've had to take 72 stations off the list since they stopped selling ethanol free gas, most in North Louisiana. Inside sources told me that in July, the first month after Marathon stopped selling ethanol free gas, their Louisiana gas sales dropped OVER 50%! Several distributors I know who were buying ethanol free and ethanol gas from Marathon revolted and started buying their ethanol gas at Shell and Exxon to spite Marathon.
Thanks for all the compliments on the website fellows. I'm doing my darnest to inform consumers about ethanol gas and especially of the new 15% ethanol gas coming soon. I've been seeing a few articles of late that REALLY CONCERN me! When the EPA announced the new 15% ethanol gas, it was voluntary if you wanted to carry it. However, it appears that some Obama cronies are making noise that they may make it mandatory that stations carry 15% ethanol gas. There is a very serious problem if that happens! To carry 15%, stations very likely have to drop 10% ethanol as they would not have enough tanks to supply both (most all new stations have only two gas tanks - one for regular and another for premium. The pumps blend the two to make the 'mid-grade'). If they switched from 'E-10' to 'E-15', and, if consumers can't find a source of ethanol free gas, that would be nothing short of 'CATASTROPHIC'! The ONLY engines that EPA says can use 15% ethanol in their announcement is 2001 and newer cars and light trucks and 'Flex' vehicles. NOTHING else can use 15% ethanol!!! Then I learned just last week that a close friend has a 2004 Toyota Camry, and his owners manual says 'do not use any gasoline with greater than 10% ethanol'!
Auto manufacturers believe that 15% ethanol gas could reduce the engines's life by as much as 50,000 miles!
I recently gave a presentation to two Rotary Clubs, one in Eunice (NW of Lafayette) and another in Bay Springs, MS. They invited me to give my ethanol gas presentation to their members. They were totally surprised at what they learned and thanked me profusely. If you know of an organization that would like to invite me to give my presentation to a group, have them e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The presentation lasts about 25 minutes plus questions. All I ask is that they pay my expenses and make a small donation to help the operation of my website.
I'll keep everyone informed of this here and also on my website. Stay tuned.
