Ethanol-free stations in New England?

I found out about an E-10 free gas station on Rt 67 outside of Johnsonville, NY. Does anyone know of any other stations in New England. This one caters mainly to farmers, and I saw it on the way to visit Mom/Dad this weekend.

What's wrong with E-10?
Or do you have an old machine that won't do good with E-10?

Today's vehicles are made to run on E-10; if you're having a problem, it's probably not the gas.

The only problems with E-10 is its tendency to separate after storage of about 2 months, it can also eat away at older fuel lines and small engines don't run well with it. There are a couple of treatments that seem to help these problems mainly the separation issue one is a crc fuel treatment comes in a white bottle and says marine on it. It is formulated to protect against storage related issues.

I've never had a problem with winter storage, which is about 5-months here in Michigan but, I use a product called Sta-Bil.
I've been using E-10 in my cars, motorcycle, lawnmower, weedwhacker, blower, chainsaw and generator for years and have never had a fuel related problem.

Maybe it's the Sta-Bil that does the trick because I use it all year round adding it when I fill my gas storage cans. In the motorcycle I only use it during winter storage and start adding it a few weeks before it goes into storage. I've never used Sta-Bil in my cars because they go through at least a tankful of gas every week.

Yes the Sta-bil is the reason you arn't haveing problems with your fuel. Preventative maintence is the key to any engine no matter what type it is.

E10 affects gas mileage adversely by about 10%. A very well known fact.
I put the Sta-Bil Marine in EVERYTHING I own..
