Wow. I gave $2.40 for some in Pleasanton at the Walmart. Regular 87 gas was $1.89.

I would fill up all of my cans for $1.76

Small engines around my place all get it

2 chainsaws, 2 generators, 2 Atv's, Honda UTV, log splitter, weed eater and lawnmower. I got tired of supporting the carburetor and small engine repairs shops. Used Sta Bil and still add a little today.

Yeah, bought several cans the last couple years, but I'm going back to oil in non-ethanol gas. That's too much to pay for convenience IMO. Also bought electric pole saw and chain saw and very pleased with them for light work.

I agree itís too much, but I was in a bind and convenience was the only reason.

DO they add another additive or just more pure gasoline?

That's first I've heard of this experience. We ran it through our '07 and '08 5.3L and a 6L. We were very pleased.

Ethanol is higher than CBOB right now so it is possible that even paying for the RIN they should be about the same price. But... they are quite a bit under water at both the E10 price and the clear price. Enjoy it while it last.
