So apparently and supposedly we can get premium here with no ethanol in it and it's even 93! But also there's a chance premium could still be 10%??But, MO also doesn't have a law/requirement to label pumps. So is the premium always good? I almost exclusively try to get gas at Shell or BP unless it can't be avoided. You guys do the same or something different?

In my experience, 89 and 93 usually won't have much if any ethanol here. That's why there's a huge difference in price between 87 and 89 versus 89 and 93.

I live in Metro East so I only fill up on the MO side of the river when we go out cruising by 94, but the Shell right off I-64/MO-94 always has good 93.

10% isnt going to matter.

You can buy a cheap fuel tester if you really want to know though.

I usually get gas at the Shell on Hanley near the Galeria or the BP on north Hanley by the airport. Can't say I've notice any difference in performance or fuel mileage between them, but yea, I always shoot to get gas on the MO side. If nothing else, it's what, 25¢ a gallon cheaper?!?! I did notice the BP has a 10% label on their pumps, but it's positioned over the regular and midgrade handles and not over the premium one. I've just always heard if you can get no ethanol, that's the way to go.
