    Sunoco 110 Ive found dirtier than vp also , I had to run it in florida one year. Vp is really the cleanest Ive seen, but extremely good at decarboning at small ratio's.
    AVGas 100ll has up to 0.56grams/liter which works out to 2.12grams/gallon. I live in California. I would love to be able to buy non-ethanol gas near me. This is not the case. AvGas costs the same of Super Unleaded out here.

    Thanks folks, just trying to avoid eth and get a consistent, quality fuel. I have used 87 and 91 non eth and have not noticed any octane issues with either.

    AvGas is very consistent. I havenít had any problems running it.

    Yes. Nearest source is close to thirty miles. Both the 87 and 91 sources are directly on my route to my usual ride area but I just want a better quality fuel.
