Ethanol Free Gasoline

You can get a list of all the currently reported locations offering ethanol-free gas at http://pure-gas.org. It is not 100% accurate; at least one that is listed is closed and 'Penny Patch' was not on the list so that is good to know!!

That is good to know also.
The station closest to me on Olive Road (XPress Mart) only has the 100% ethanol free in 89 octane.
Now I know where to get 91.
Thanks on behalf of my high performance small engines.

100% Gas

The BP at Scenic Highway and I-10 sells 100% gas that is marked 89 octane but I have checked with the delivery guy several times and he is delivering 91 Octane/100% gas. If you are headed from the West to Blackwater or Eglin, this is a convenient stopping point.

Wicked Different kinda Cheaha this year

We have the technology.
All we lack is knowledge.



The plan is to leave from Mt. Cheaha (or Oxford) last friday of October and jump on the Trans Eastern Trail and head northeast into Georgia and take one of those green tracks towards Suches then back to Elijay then return trip back on TET to where we parked.
We should be getting back there sunday dark-30 or Monday sometime.


Packin light with undies,socks and a toothbrush. Gets dark, we route to motel someplace. Get hungry or need gas we get it when we can,,,or route to it.
Total trust in the Montana GPS,,,,and we know how those things lie.

With that said, I'm expecting only 2 or 3 dummies to go with me.

Wish us luck.

Jim,
Most of this route will be new to me.

A year or so ago, we followed along on the ADV sight as a gang from Florida made the TET loop from Tallahasee north hugging the eastern side of Alabama to as far north as Ellijay Georgia. Then turned south along the eastern side of Georgia.
Except for lots of dust and resulting cases of emphazema, they did just fine.
They got some info here:
http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=589118

What I have in mind is much shorter, but will take two days of bike riding on dirt and street.
Trailer up on a friday, bike ride sat/sun and trailer home monday.

A unshakable good attitude will be required by all of us along with a very few personal items.
We came to ride and we're traveling light.

Thanks Eloy,
Busy this month with ride up to the Barbers Vintage Event starting this coming weekend and a ride in the Smokeys the following week.
Looking like the last weekend of October will suddenly be upon us with very little time to do detailed preparation for the Cheaha ride.

Sounds like the best kinda fun to me.
