As the EPA ponders its decision on increasing the ethanol level in gasoline to 15 percent, up from its current level of 10, a number of fuel docks around the Bay are offering ethanol-free gas in locations where it's not otherwise mandated by the EPA's Clean Air Act. (Click here for a list of EPA Clean Air Act counties in Maryland, DC, and Virginia, where the sale of ethanol-free gasoline is not permitted.)
As a service to our readers we are putting together as complete a listing as we can on such fuel docks, and we seek your assistance in this project. If you know of a marina (or indeed own one or work for one) that sells ethanol-free gasoline, please email us at Meanwhile, here is our current list of marinas that are selling non-ethanol gasoline:
