What they didn't tell U.

It will say on the pump if it contains ethanol and how much. 
My understanding is that some states had ethanol free Shell V-Power a few years ago and some didn't, but that has all changed and V-Power now has 10% ethanol just like everyone else.

Just checked my local Shell and V Power is still advertised as Dethanol free, (sticker on pump). But like John I don't trust that. Next time I see the owner of this Shell I will ask him. Getting conflicting information here (Ontario, Canada), about whether V Power now has that additive or not. Seems that some stations may not carry Dethanol free V Power. If it is hit or miss, why would their refill tanker trucks not all carry the same product? Too much for my noodle. Clay/Lexi
