    If you can find 100 at the pump let me know where the station is! I know of one in all of Orange County and it's about an hour from me, which is no bueno.

    I would expect that if it has ethanol in it it should be posted as so on the pump.

    Whether there is ethanol in a particular station in California depends on the county and the brand. So, as asked, the question cannot be answered. Here in the Monterey area, Chevron is allegedly ethanol free. So when you come for Car Week in August, or Rennsport, fill-up at a Chevron worry free.

    Last year I spent some time in the Monterey area and was told the same thing. I tested gas at four different Chevrons and all four contained ethanol. Despite my searches, I was unable to find ethanol-free gas anywhere in the area. I did find an independent station offering Gulf 93 octane with isobutanol instead of ethanol which my car hated. Ideally I was hoping to find a station offering VP Racing which is all I use here in Austin (and my cars love it) but I was unable to find anything within reasonable driving distance.
