Just wanting to double check that the Ultra 94 contains Ethanol in Alberta. I sent an inquiry to PCanada, but that was two weeks ago and I've heard nothing. I'm sure it does, but I thought I'd ask an expert!!

+1 I see them saying they have ethanol.

I'm sure the PC 94 has ethanol, however, my car runs well on it (use it for track outings). Feel a slight, probably placebo difference between it and ethanol-free 91.

Thanks!

I was going to try it but it seems like most people prefer Shell 91 over PC 94.

I run shell/sunoco 93 mixed with ms 109 or straight cam 2. I've also been using torco instead of 109 lately and it works well in both cars. I order torco in 5 gallon jugs and refill their small containers or race fuel jugs with how much I need for convenience. Mixing a little in when you NEED gas and cant find shell also provides peace of mind.. although I would hate to get rear ended with race fuel concentrate in my trunk.

I read this post on a random thread. Can anyone confirm it's accuracy in whole or part? Kinda makes sense with the "may contain 10% ethanol" stickers on the gas pumps mentioned here. I put Shell 93 in today for the first time. Pump stated "may contain 10% ethanol", surprise, surprise! I've been putting Hess premium from day one, got about 6900 mi. and have no issues...


"Ethanol isn't brand specific, since the tankers at the depot take gas from the same source, no matter what the brand. If they take it from an ethanol/gas tank, the gas at your station will have ethanol, whether it's Shell or BP or Exxon. If they get it from an ethanol-free tank, which are almost impossible to find, it'll be 100% gas.The only 100% gas I've been able to find in many states is Citgo, but that's Cesar Chavez juice, so you have an ethical/economical decision to make."
