Go to your local airport or marina. That’s where you can purchase non-E gasoline. Or try these:
TruFuel, in three varieties, is sold at Home Depot, Lowe’s, Walmart and other retailers. The two-cycle 50:1 gas/oil mix costs $5.48 a quart at Home Depot and Lowe’s, which also sells the 40:1 mixture online.
At Sears, ethanol-free fuels in four-and two-cycle varieties are sold online and in stores. (Kmart also carries these products, all of which are made by TruSouth, maker of TruFuel.) The “pure” Craftsman gas costs $6.99 a quart, though you can lower that price to $5.81 a quart by buying a six-pack (the brand is Arnold, a division of outdoor-gear manufacturer MTD), sold by Wholesale Tools from the same website. Both the 50:1 two-cycle gas/oil mixture and the 40:1 two-cycle mixture cost $5.49 a quart.
VP Racing Fuels sells SEF (Small Engine Fuel) in all three varieties through distributors, relatively small retailers, and the company’s website. Unlike the TruSouth product, which is 92-octane, SEF is 94. All three varieties are sold by the six-pack for $43.95, which comes out to about $7.33 per quart.
I’ve used TruFuel, but I sure hate paying $25/gallon for plain old pre-mixed gas/oil.
I could use regular gas and consider the weed-eater disposable and be money ahead.
