    Forgot to mention they only fill plastic containers. The fire marshal had an issue with them re-filling old steel containers inside their building.

    Just a heads up

    i don't do it for performance .. I do it for fuel consistsncy, I know it's clean, and not full of ethanel.. Pump gas is true garbage. I've had junk pump gas stall out 3 vehicles over the past 8 years. I don't need that on my $7,000 investment that I'm trusting to carry me over a jump. To each their own.. But for a few extra dollars, it's worth it for piece of mind. You'd change your mind if you saw what sits in the bottom of those tanks beneath the gas stations.

    You are driving to Akron to get fuel for your bike?...from Sheffield Lake? It's not $10/gal any more. It's more like $50some/gal now, possibly more.

    I drive a Chevy Cruze .. I get about 33-35mpg on the highway. It's 84 miles round trip, I'll use about 2.5 gallons.. Which might cost me $5.00 in gas. Tops. Idk what you drive but you need to sell it LOL. Besides, it's my money, what do you care?

    im all for it if the bike needs it of course... due to motor work. but on a stock bike its a waste. ive gone through enough bikes now and only ran pump gas and never had any problems. but as you said..to each their own. il save my $ and do more frequent oil changes, thatll keep her healthier than that gas will.

    Crute you don't keep a bike long enough for it to develop any issues lol .. And just because it isn't giving you any acute issues doesn't mean it not hurting your bike/ gumming it up.. I don't slack on oil changes either.. Every other ride minimum .. As I said, running VP isn't just for modded motors, I run it for clean consistant fuel. With pump gas your never getting the same blend.. Ethanel is just garbage for any motor.

    I've done a ton of research on ethanol.. Did you know some manufactures won't warranty a motor if ethanol has been ran in it.. Did you know it is extremely corrosive, and attracts water, manufacturers even say if you have the means to run a gas with none in it, run it.your also losing about 2-3 miles per gallon running e10... I'm going to run T4 .. It's a direct replacement for pump fuel with a engine octane rating at 93.. With no ethanol. Do a little research on he stuff.. EPA is also pushing for 12-15 percent ethanol in our gas now. Our vehicles were only formulated for 10 percent. Max. Going to cause a lot of issues.

    Methanol is extremely corrosive, ethanol not so much. And the ethanol actually helps by attracting that water you worry about. If it didnt the water would collect and corrode sensitive metal parts in the injector system. For the average joe pump gas is just fine, when is last time you heard of one of our bikes failing because of it? Im sure it happens but very rare. I used to run a 50/50 mix of turbo blue and pump for the same reasons as you and still do in my 2 stroke. The modern 4 stroke FI engines dont need it though. And the OEM's usually call for 90 octane now. If your bike doesnt sit with fuel in it for long there are no worries. And be sure when using race fuel you dont stray far above the recommended octane because you will actually lose power. MX33 has it right by sticking with a 93 octane and not letting his manliness get the best of him and going for the 115 thinking his bike will get more power! Obviously he has done his homework!

    we also have some racers that order T2, VOR, MRX02, C50 and T4 on an as needed basis.
    we usually keep VP-110, c12 and U4.4 in stock but as a VP dealer, we can get all of their products.

    Mostly repeating what has already been said.

    I can 2nd or 3rd maybe it's 5th Pro Car has VP. It's cheaper to pay cash, but not by much. They have a TON of 55 gal drums of various fuels. Usually they are open until 6pm. About 5 minutes off 77 from the Wilbeth exit, just south of DT Akron. I just picked up some C12 Monday night.

    If you make the trek into Lake County, Chardon Oil has VP and I believe they are now offering ethanol free gas. I know a friend has been going there for fuel in his small engine stuff. I have not been there for ethanol free stuff yet.
