I saw a new Alpina B7 in black today as I was walking my dog. When I was walking home I saw it in a garage just up the street from mine. Man, that's a nice car!

found this website

http://pure-gas.org/

I'm going to fill up at one of the stations and see if my car runs any differently / better. The website points out that it's fairly easy to test for ethanol in the gas yourself so maybe I'll do that some day.

In Germany the pumps with 10% ethanol are clearly labeled E10... but in America they're allowed to give us up to 10% ethanol without really telling you I think. My car is now fairly aggressively tuned for 93 octane 100% gasoline so I want to be careful about what I put in the tank

Mine shot flames until the dme adapted after some miles, then I was.

Shell premo is the stuff I always tried to run, it is typically ethanol free too.

I went to that Jake guy's shop the first time. I guess ill go there again to get the true numbers on my tune. I have switched fuel though. Instead of BP 93 octane winter gas, I have a full tank of price chopper 91 "no ethanol". I'd like to go on Monday, if they're not open, cause I don't have school. I would probably go in the morning. I have a meeting that afternoon

Saw a local today with an E46 coupe (non-m) with an ///M badge on the back, with some gaudy wheels on it. Young kid...
