Tell me where you get it in Sparks. My calls have indicated it can't be found here. I must be calling the wrong people.qmdv wrote:In Kalifaornia you have to pay the 35cent excise tax. I would have to charge it and then the end user could file for a return at the end of the year. Mogas has to be shiped from Sparks, NV.
If I charge too much, nobody shows up, if I charge too little then there is no return on investment. The FBO in montague is run by the guy that has the glider operation in Williams CA and he just got 8000 gallons of 100ll and has it for sale at 5.65. Really hard to compete with that.
I'll have to drive down there and hunt around. There's a bulk fuel distributor on Praeter that sells racing gas and other specialty fuels. I asked them about it in 250 gallon quantities and they said no way. I'm talking to the wrong people. I may do some politicking with some of the pilots associations. N86 is not county, it's a leasehold on BLM land. We have 100LL but I would think that adding an above ground 8700 tank might work if we could pay for the investment and then pass sell at non-profit after recouping. Hmmmmm, a 501-3C competing with for profit companies. Maybe you can't do that.qmdv wrote:There is a tank farm in Sparks. That is where it can be had, just have to buy 8700 gallons at a time. Try calling the local bulk plants and see if they have it and see what stations they supply.
Hard to find since the gov f**cked us with the eth fecal material. Try this.
Is Fallon too far. Did I say that the gov knows best for us.

Hmmph. I been using it in my Harley and my chainsaw and weed whipper. Same outcome. A million years ago, I think Honda and Yamaha warned not to use Shell brand gasoline because of it's deleterious effect on rubber stuff. Was that alcohol anybody know?180Marty wrote:Evidently you guys have missed all of Glidergeek's posts on his auto fuel experience and Emsflys. Right now there is an abundance of gasoline available and the price just keeps climbing just because the oil companies can do whatever they want with a "what you gonna do about it attitude". I know of an old Cessna that has been using E10 for over 5 years even though E0 could be had from the other nozzle on the pump. I've been doing a little test with the Stihl chainsaw---I mixed the oil with the E10 last Feb. and the same batch of fuel will make it run today so it must not be too stale. I don't use it much but it is nice to know that I can.
