    Just for the record and for the benefit of riders visiting Canada this summer, Shell Premium 91 is ethanol free as is Chevron 94.

    In fact, I'm coining a new tourist slogan..."Come for the gas - stay for the beer".

    Hope to see you soon!

    Is this always true?
    The last two times we were in Ontario none of the Shell 91 pumps were marked as ethanol free.

    According to the Shell website, yes - "0% ethanol at every station in Canada". They might not publicise it on the pump. Also, it has the name "Nitro+" so it must be good.

    Good advice. The fuel is more expensive north of the wall, but every time I burn a tank I have significant higher miles per gallon. Not enough to offset the cost but enough to tell me that the swill I get south of the border is an inferior fuel. I usually drink Scotch so cannot comment specifically on the beer, but do note that both Scotland and Canada are in some manner related to the former British Empire.

    BC1100S... wouldn't that be "come for the beer, deal with the gas" depending on how many beers are consumed?????

    You certainly have a point there.
