TV Interview on 'E15' by WDSU TV

Hi all! I thought I’d update you on my “15% Ethanol Gasoline” consumer awareness activities.




This new gasoline may start appearing in Louisiana and other southern states this year. When it does, it will likely be sold at major branded stations. It’s currently selling in 6-8 midwestern states and is also now in the Houston area I’ve recently learned. This new gasoline has some very severe issues and consumers should be aware of the hazards of this new fuel. I've participated in 3 radio talk shows in December and also helped the outdoor sports writer for the New Orleans Times Picayune write an article for the Picayune in December, 2012 on the issues associated with this new fuel.

In mid December, I ran articles daily for six days which I called “15% Ethanol Awareness Week” on my website. These can be found on my website’s “Current News” page should you care to read them.

About 2 weeks ago, I was invited to do a TV interview on the 15% ethanol or 'E15' fuel issues by New Orleans TV station NBC affiliate WDSU. The interview with the WDSU TV reporter and his cameraman was conducted on January 28th at my home in LaPlace. He filmed for about 30 min. I’m sure the final piece will be only 2-3 minutes when it is broadcast.

The reporter informed me that the piece is currently scheduled to air on Tuesday, Feb 5th on the 6:00 pm New Orleans NBC station WDSU news.

For cable viewers in the New Orleans area, WDSU is broadcast on following channels: Cox Cable - Ch 7, Comcast Cable - Ch 6, RTC Cable - Ch 6/306, Direct TV - Ch 6 and Dish Network - Ch 6.

When I get the YouTube video of the show, I'll post it on the website.

For those outside of the New Orleans TV viewing area, when I get the “YouTube” version of the news cast a week or so after the broadcast, I will post the video of the broadcast on my the “Home” page of my website:


I am trying my best to inform consumers of the dangers of this new fuel before it starts appearing in our area, so please inform your friends to watch the news broadcast on WDSU on February 5th at 6:00 pm news.

Super stop, Sorrento

Hey Pete, I called Super Stop next to Mcdonald's at I10 at Sorrento today to verify non-ethanol gas. The lady who answered said that all their gas had 10% ethanol. Have they changed? I think they are still on your list. Thanks. Good luck!

'Fishfiles', yes, I have the link to that Fox news video posted on the 'Home' page of my website. It's very well done. The auto industry just released the results of a study/testing on the impact of 15% ethanol gas on 2001 and newer model cars which EPA said were safe to run on 'E15', despite that all 2001 and newer cars, domestic and foreign made, all warn owners in their owners manual NOT to use gas with greater than 10% ethanol as it may cause engine damage, and if it does, it would VOID their warranty. The tests confirms what the auto industry has been saying for a few years now. The test results showed exceedingly high rate of fuel pump failures among other damage. I'll post this article on my website next week.

'Popping Cork', thanks for the info on the Sorrento station. I'll check it out and remove from my list if confirmed. My Louisiana ethanol FREE gas list is now nearly two years old. I recently obtained a 2013 list of Louisiana gas stations and am ready to begin a total update of all Louisiana gas stations. This process takes several months. Thanks for all everyone's support readers. Don't forget to read my website for the latest news on ethanol gas related issues:

You Were Right About Sorrento 'Super Stop'

'Poppincork', you were right about 'Super Stop' in Sorrento having converted to ethanol gas. I took them off my list.

Thanks for letting me know.

Check My Website Mike

'Mike the Tiger', check my website:


I have over 1,600 ethanol FREE gas locations in Louisiana's 64 Parishes and Mississippi's 82 Counties on my website's 'Ethanol Free Gas List'.

My Louisiana list is getting out of date since it's nearly 2 years old now. I just received an updated 2013 list of Louisiana gas stations and I'm getting ready to start a complete update of the Louisiana list. Will likely take me 4 months or more as there are about 3,500 gas locations in Louisiana.

Should anyone learn of a station that is on my list of ethanol FREE gas locations that has switched to 'corn gas', please e-mail me to let me know so I can take it off the list. E-mail me at:


PS: Mike, what is the name, city of the station you are referring to on the north shore? Not sure I have it on my list? Search my list and let me know if it is not on the list and let me know with station details so I can add it please.

smart phone app

There's a free app for your smart phone called pure gas. It will give you a list of gas stations without enthanol.

This Website Stole Some of My Data

Keith P...........I am aware of the site you are referring to. It's called 'Pure-Gas.org'. In 2010, I threatened him with a lawsuit because he was copying my ethanol FREE gas list.

I see that on quite a few stations on his list in Louisiana, he now says 'Bulk import from Alton Landry Spreadsheet'.

I am seriously considering bringing a lawsuit against the site owner. He was warned by my attorney, but he is apparently still stealing my data.

Thanks for your unwavering support Bert! Way too premature for autographs. I'm curious to see how the TV spot comes out after editing.

Pete I recently when to fill my boat up at Love's Travel Stop in Vinton, Louisiana and it says it on the pump now that their fuel contains 10% ethanol. Just thought it would help you out on your list.

Another one gone!

I called R&B supermarket in Sorrento. They say they don't sell non-ethanol anymore. I think they have changed owners. 675-5360. Good luck!

You Were Right about R&B Grocery

'Poppincork'....You're right about R&B Grocery. I just spoke with the store Manager Ryan. They bought this store last fall and he switched to 'corn gas'. He did it due to pricing, but he admits it was a bad idea. While he's selling more gas, he says he hates to put this in his truck as he loses mileage big time. He only has two tanks and has blend pumps, so the State will NOT allow him to isolate one tank to ethanol free and another ethanol gas since it would pull from the ethanol tank if a customer selects mid grade, since it is a blend pump. However, he also told me he is currently pricing new pumps as his are very old and giving him trouble. I suggested he get 'non blend' pumps and then isolate his smaller tank to ethanol free gas and put ethanol gas in the other. He told me that is exactly what he plans to do. He wasn't sure when he might have the new pumps installed, but he has my name and phone number and will call me if he in fact does this and let me know so I can put his store back on my list. He realizes he was the last store in the Sorrento area that sold good gas and wants to get it back.

Thanks for letting me know. I'll take R&B Grocery off my list later today.

Thanks for verifying it. I called Rende's yesterday, which is at the corner of 61 and hwy 30 and a couple of miles from Ryan's. They still sell nonethanol but the last time I got some there, about 4 or 5 weeks ago, it took about 5 minutes to pump 5 gallons! The young lady whom I talked to said she couldn't tell me if they are pumping faster. May be someone knows and will comment!?

Pump Filters Likely Plugged

'Poppingcork', their pumps are pumping slow because their pump filters are nearly plugged and need to be changed. Not uncommon.

Thanks, I mentioned that when I called them. Hadn't been by to find out! Another question, If there is ethanol in the tanks at a station are they required to have the sticker on the pumps noting that? Seems that would be a requirement.

Louisiana Law on Ethanol Pump Labeling

Guys, here's the Louisiana State Ethanol Pump Labeling Law (it's on my website under 'Ethanol Regulations):

§337. Gasoline-Alcohol Blends

A. A dispenser of motor fuel containing greater than 1 percent but no more than 10 percent ethanol by volume shall have a label on both sides of the dispenser stating “contains ethanol” or “contains up to 10 percent ethanol,” or “may contain up to 10 percent ethanol,” or similar wording approved by the commissioner.

1. These labels shall be located on the upper 50 percent of the dispenser’s front panel in a position clear and conspicuous from the driver’s position, in a type at least 12 millimeter (1/2 inch) in height, 1.5 millimeter (1/16 inch) stroke (width of type).

2. The color of the lettering shall be in definite contrast to the background color to which it is applied.

AUTHORITY NOTE: Promulgated in accordance with R.S. 3:4608, 3:4673, and 3:4680. HISTORICAL NOTE: Promulgated by the Department of Agriculture and Forestry, Office of Agro-Consumer Services, LR 34:2550 (December 2008)


Failure to display the required label if the station is selling ethanol gas will first result in a warning, which if is not heeded, can result in a fine of $500/day/pump!

Check on my website's 'Ethanol Facts' page at the bottom and it tells you how to file a complaint with the Louisiana Fuel Director if you suspect a station is selling ethanol gas but does not have the required ethanol label on the pump. He'll send out an inspector to test the gas and inspect the station.
