    Lots of places in Iowa seem to have one hose dispenser and a separate button for 10%, Premium, Mid-grade, etc. Labels are missing or not clear often. Always fill with premium/no ethanol if the bike sits for a month or more. Last winter in Iowa was one of those "or more" kinda winters ;-(

    Looking forward to heading up to the MOA Rally in a couple weeks! Hopefully will be a bit cooler than Sedalia was.

    Northern Wisconsin and the Michigan UP have good availability of non ethanol fuel and the stations have signs promoting it. But octane will generally be no higher than 91.

    Spent a week in that area back in may. Almost every BP station had non ethanol fuel.
